Governance and Finance.
McGhehey, M. A.
Court litigation concerning governance and finance in higher education demonstrates lawyers' attempts to extend the legal principles established in one educational system to different systems. Intergovernmental relations cases involve educational institutions' connections with counties, cities, states, and various public agencies. Because of an increasing volume of litigation, cases involving private institutions are discussed in a separate section. Other governance issues discussed concern open meeting laws, accreditation, and licensing. Three cases involve church-state issues, and four cases bear on wills and trusts. The question of the tax-exempt status of property owned or used by educational institutions is the subject of four cases. Grouped under a miscellaneous heading are cases concerning a transfer of territory, governmental immunity, and advertising for bids. (Author/MLF)
