This is a complex story that involves not only the student body but Northern faculty, staff, administration, and the Marquette community. The motivations for protesting and for resisting the protests were complicated, and the purposes were sometimes blurred.

This exhibition site was created to aid and to inform. Please explore the links and resources provided.
