Richard D. Mann, University of Michigan psychology professor, played an important role in organizing the Ann Arbor and National teach-ins on the Vietnam War during the spring of 1965. He continued his activist attempts to make education timely and relevant by designing courses to examine the dynamics of student protest at Columbia and during the Black Action Movement at the University of Michigan. He also participated in efforts to open university courses to members of the local community through the short-lived Program for Educational and Social Change in 1972.
