This Monday, Spectator Opinion looks at the different roles of student activism from 1968 to 2008. Jonathan Backer considers a more effective form of activism, professor Todd Gitlin urges activists to find new forms of change instead of repeating old ones, and Karina Garcia explains why connecting with the "off-campus" community is important for activism. This is part one of three-part series on student activism. If you are interested in contributing to part two, e-mail us at
