Equity, once viewed as racially divisive and associated with activism within social justice movements that academic purists disdained as advocacy work, is now being embraced on the academic scene.

The conclusion of World War II created anxiety about how to accommodate the return of millions of veterans and spurred the passage of the Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944--the GI Bill--that would ultimately send two million people to college. But in 1946, the second year of Truman's Presidency, there was an even larger political question. The…
