1968: A Year Unlike Any Other at Ohio State

Join us for the next Buckeye Smart Speaker Series event!

1968 proved to be among the most contentious years of the 20th century, particularly on U.S. college campuses. 1968: Down the Rabbit Hole describes what those 12 months felt like at the time for some Ohio State students, including Bill Shkurti, a graduating senior that year who later served as the university's vice president for business and finance. His talk also will explore how those events helped shape what the university is today and what challenges may lie ahead.

About the Speaker

Bill Shkurti was a graduating senior at Ohio State in 1968. He returned to earn a master’s degree in 1974 and served for 20 years as the university's vice president for business and finance before retiring in 2010. He has since written a book about this period titled “OSU in the Sixties: The Unraveling of the Old Order,” which was published by OSU Press in 2016.
