The Legal Foundations of Student Personnel Services in Higher Education.
Hammond, Edward H., Ed.; Shaffer, Robert H., Ed.
Legal aspects of the administration of student services are examined from various viewpoints in the 10 chapters of this monograph. In light of the increasing number of legal cases affecting student development work in higher education, it is suggested that approaches different from those of the traditional student personnel relationship are needed. First Amendment issues and legal implications of the Fourth Amendment are discussed. Operational problems for student services are analyzed in several chapters and related to the new legal environment. Future implications and predictions of the legal issues and court involvements that may have an effect on college and university life are also examined. Chapters in the monograph include: The Consumer-Institutional Relationship (Edward H. Hammond); A New Perspective for the First Amendment in Higher Education (T. Richard Mager); An Application of the Privacy Concept to Student Life (William R. Bracewell); The Relationship of Legal Issues and Procedures to Student Development (Elizabeth A. Greenleaf); Legal Aspects of Student Personnel Functions (Gerald E. Tanner); Civil Rights Legislation and Higher Education (Donald R. Moore and Eric R. Jones); Student Disciplinary Proceeding in Collegiate Institutions (E. T. Buchanan, III); The Professional Approach to Student Discipline in the Years Ahead (Robert G. Caruso); Student Personnel Staff Liability (D. Parker Young); and Projections of Future Legal Issues and Developments in Higher Education (Barrie Wight). A brief glossary of legal terms for the student personnel administrator is included. (SF)
