Codes of Student Conduct: A Breakdown of Statements of Sixteen Colleges and Universities.
National Industrial Conference Board, Inc., New York, NY.
A group of university presidents and other administrative officials met in July, 1968 to discuss the problem of crime and disorder in the US. There was an expressed need for background information that would be helpful to officials at institutions of higher education who want to develop, reexamine, or redefine a code of student conduct. This report is in response to that need. Statements representing 16 colleges and universities are broken down and arranged by subject matter or topics. The breakdowns include selected portions of official codes of conduct and and relevant sections of speeches and special letters prepared by college presidents, for each of which the source is identified. The report also contains "Proposed Codes With Commentary - Student Conduct and Discipline Proceedings in a University Setting" which contain the recommendations of 16 students and 4 faculty members who participated in a seminar sponsored by the New York University School of Law, and an "Administrator's Handbook," published by the editors of "College and University Business." The final item is "Proposed Legislation Covering Disruptive Activities" in the State of Ohio. There are 43 topics, including freedom of the student press, picketing (and other demonstrations), non-discrimination (and fair housing), police intervention, destruction of property, personal attire, narcotics, alcohol, student conduct regarding federal and state laws and city ordinances, and student organizations.
