With the rise of the corporate university and the academic industrial complex, colleges and universities throughout the United States are becoming monitored, armed, gated, and contracted out in the name of security. Policing the Campus is a collection of essays by activist academics and campus organizers from a variety of fields and movements. The book fully explores how higher education has entered a state of academic repression. In this new Occupy Wall Street era, higher education mirrors the problems that plague urban schools in poor communities, including metal detectors, random locker searches, drug-sniffing police dogs, in-class arrests, and security guards at every major entrance. Policing the Campus is a wake-up call to protect higher education as a bastion of free thought, strategy, and challenge for the 99%, and not preserve it as the privilege of the elite 1%.

Anthony J. Nocella II is Visiting Professor in Education and Senior Fellow in the Dispute Resolution Institute at Hamline University and Editor of the Peace Studies Journal.

David Gabbard is Associate Professor in the Department of Bilingual Education at Boise State University.

Review:

«Higher education is the next iteration of the war on terror. The rhetoric used by our government has become the next frontier of surveillance attempting to silence the academy. Gabbard and Nocella take us deep inside these mind fields and show us the new »big brother”at every turn. Yet, they end with a pedagogy of occupy the classroom and show how some universities are generating a climate of resistance.» (Dr. sj Miller, Indiana University of Pennsylvania)
«’Policing the Campus’ should enlighten, enrage, and empower us all to confront the militarization of higher education and transform our colleges and universities into what they are supposed to be: spaces of learning and liberation.» (Dr. David NaguibPellow, Don Martindale Professor of Sociology, University of Minnesota and co-author (with Lisa Park) of ‘The Slums of Aspen: Immigrants vs. the Environment in America's Eden’)
«Whether you agree or disagree with their conclusions, the essays in this volume are certain to inspire a much needed dialogue about the effects of police and military presences on college campuses. Everyone interested in the current state of higher education and its role in democratic society is sure to be equal parts intrigued and incensed by what they find within these pages.» (Dr. Steven W. Halady, Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Canisius College)
«We live in a time of unprecedented clampdown on student dissent and ‘policed pedagogy’, super-surveillance at colleges across the planet. This book, concentrating on realities of repression largely in the U.S., will galvanize researchers elsewhere to investigate and struggle against similar forms of academic fascism engulfing campuses worldwide.» (Bill Templer, Independent Scholar, Bulgaria)
«As one who has had his classes infiltrated over the years by students from right wing organizations – solely for the purpose of disrupting (and reporting on) my course content, I cannot say enough about the timeliness and importance of this excellent work. Academic freedom has been under attack for many decades and in many ways. Much ground has been lost that needs to be regained. Hopefully this book will contribute toward the accomplishment of that goal.» (Dr. John C. Alessio, Former SBS Dean, Minnesota State Mankato, author of «Social Problems and Inequality: Social Responsibility through Progressive Sociology»)
«Nocella and Gabbard have done it again! ‘Policing the Campus’ minces no words and pulls no punches to focus the scholarly microscope on the repression and suppression of intellectual thought and action. Faculty and students alike will view their educational opportunities and work in a new light through this startling exposé of academic policing.» (Dr. Julie Andrzejewski, Professor, Department of Human Relations and Multicultural Education)
«In ‘Policing the Campus’, Gabbard and Nocella make a critical and radical intervention that challenges the policing and surveillance of higher education. If the influence of military, corporations, and law enforcement – and the creation of a police state on every campus – go unchecked, it will be impossible for democratic and free education to flourish.» (SaratColling, Co-founder of Political Media Review)
«In the ever changing climate of higher education, the policies related to this system still reflect of a cultural climate that does little to recognize the diverse community in which higher education has become. The book, ‘Policing the Campus’, push us to look at the climate of higher education and the response needed to move both our society and educational instruction to reflect and act in a more cultural responsive manner.» (Dr. Donald Easton-Brooks, Associated Dean of the School of Education, Hamline
