On the campus of Douglass College, a division of the larger Rutgers University, stands a long rectangular building of red brick. It is unassuming as university architecture generally goes today — all intricate reinforced concrete geometry and plate glass — but even from the exterior one can sense the hive of activity within. The parking lot is generally filled, some of the cars with out‐of‐state licence plates. Within one can see the busy back and forth bustle of trade unionists, professors, visitors, and staff. This is the Labour Education Centre, a part of the University Extension Division, the point at which union and university meet on common ground. Often referred to as labour's house on the university campus, it was built in 1961, largely with the contributions of workers and their organisations.
