Kenneth Stone tears up his degree  

 

Innis College
Innis College pioneered interdisciplinary studies at the university. The time capsule submission offers an example of how, in the turbulent period of the 1960's, the college took heed of student concerns and introduced interdisciplinary courses that engage current issues and student needs and interests.

On June 1, 1968, Ken Stone, president of the Innis College Student Society, tore up the B.A. degree he had just received. "This piece of paper is meaningless," he said before the shocked crowd. He went on to advocate the need for curriculum renewal, a pressing topic at the time.

Stone's act of defiance received wide media coverage at the time and became a defining moment in Innis' proud history of student engagement.
