Governance and Finance.
McGhehey, Marion A.
The organization of higher education varies from state to state, and the methods the several states use in the interpretation of constitutional or statutory provisions are so different that judicial precedent in one state may not be applicable at all in another. For an understanding of the general trends in litigation regarding higher education governance and finance it is necessary to look at the developments in all states. This chapter discusses the decisions resulting from litigation in several areas: the authority of institutions of higher education to establish rules and regulations; the relationship between educational institutions, as governmental branches, and other branches of government; the tax exempt status of institutions of higher education; the degree of governmental immunity of these institutions; and several aspects of educational finance, including tuition, legislative appropriation, and student eligibility for veterans' benefits.
