"The Midpeninsula Free University (MFU) was one of the largest and most successful of the many free universities that sprang up on and around college campuses in the mid-1960s in the wake of the Free Speech Movement at University of California, Berkeley and the nationwide anti-war Teach-ins which followed." "In its most active and successful years—1968-1969—enrollment varied between 1,000 and 1,275. Between 150 and 300 courses were offered each quarter, covering a variety of categories: Encounter/Sensitivity (26%) , Arts (15%) , Philosophy & Religion (13%) , Crafts (12%) , Politics & Economics (12%) , Leisure (10%) , Whole Earth Studies (8%) , Education (4%). It was known for its intriguing and disparate mix of classes. The MFU strove for full participatory democracy. All significant decisions were made by the membership, either at monthly membership meetings or weekly Coordinating Committee meetings open to any member who wished to participate and presided over by an elected Coordinator."
