The Law and Private Colleges.
Grace, James L., Jr.
This paper discusses the law as it applies to private colleges as distinct from public institutions. First, it analyzes how private colleges and universities may be held to the constitutional standards of public institutions if they are engaged in state action or, in other words, in activities closely involved with a public function or purpose. Second, it discusses the Equal Opportunity Act and how individuals can claim employment discrimination under state statutes based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Third, it discusses how students at private colleges can base their rights of action on contract. Finally, it discusses collective bargaining and how a private college, as a private entity, comes under the jurisdiction of the National Labor Relations Board. (Author/LD)
