Rochdale College

Today, a program from January 1969 about Rochdale College. It was the University of Toronto's first co-op residence, Canada's first free university and, before long, the country's most notorious den of iniquity. Rochdale opened in the spring of 1968 as an experiment in co-operative living and student-centred education. It was the largest of more than 300 tuition-free universities in North America, and offered no structured courses, curriculum, exams, degrees, or traditional teaching faculty. Some called it anarchy.
