Summary

In May of 1972 the Higher Education Panel (HEP) of the American Council on Education conducted a survey of colleges and universities across the U.S. to determine the type and amount of campus disruption caused by the April 1972 increased bombing effort in North Vietnam by the U.S. It was found that: (1) an estimated 27% of the colleges and universities experienced campus unrest, with the unrest concentrated in the larger universities and the more selective colleges; (2) war protest was more likely to occur at private universities rather than at public universities or 4-year colleges, at institutions located in the Northeast or the West and Southwest rather than in the Southeast or Midwest, and at predominantly white rather than predominantly black colleges; (3) in comparison with previous years, destruction of property during the April 1972 demonstrations was rare, and on fewer than 2% of the campuses was any property damaged; and (4) civil authorities were rarely called in to deal with protests.
