Faculty 45, March 15, 1970

One of the most sought out facets of University history is campus unrest and the events of Spring 1970.  March 15 marks the 45th anniversary of the “Faculty 45″ incident.  On that day, 45 faculty members were arrested after holding a sit-in in Acting President Peter Regan’s office to protest presence of Buffalo police on campus.
