SHC resistance to university-driven formalization: on the Center’s origins

Bob Hartmann shares the suspicion and intimidation he and others felt in the wake of developing the Center for Health Services (CHS), since the fuel behind it seemed to be coming primarily from and out of the Medical School for purposes less relevant to the core SHC vision (and which certainly didn’t align with Bill Dow’s anti-establishment conviction). Joe Little also expands on the frustration he felt at the time; while there was resistance to formalization and fear of being co-opted, there was no concerted effort toward an alternative mechanism. See the full length panel discussion to learn more about the complex origins of the institutionalized Center and its relationship to the student-led Coalition.
