Historical NoteThe charge from President Carol Cartwright to the 30th May 4 Commemoration Committee was: "To develop a theme for the 30th May 4 Commemoration activities which places this historic event in the life of the University and the nation within the broader context of the democratic values which are the foundation of American society. To develop a theme around which organizations and departments can plan a special week of remembrance and commemoration during the days surrounding May 4, 2000, that is in keeping with the words on the May 4 Memorial -- 'inquire, learn, and reflect'."
The committee was composed of over 30 members of the faculty, students and staff of Kent State University along with community members. The committee was co-chaired by Richard Bredemeier and John Jameson.
