History 303: Research and Writing Seminar in History
The sexual revolution is perceived as a shift in sexual attitudes beginning in the mid 1960’s and ending in the mid 1980’s. The revolution was apparent at universities across the United States through the introduction of widely available contraceptives and education in sexual health. The purpose of this paper is to investigate and describe how the sexual revolution allowed for social and administrative change at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. Through statistical reports as well as the ever-changing views of students and faculty on campus, it can be proven that although Cal Poly is historically conservative, it still experienced a sexual revolution.
