Student Conduct and Discipline Proceedings in a University Setting. Proposed Codes with Commentary.
New York Univ., NY.
In the spring of 1968, a research seminar was held at New York University's School of Law for the purpose of developing a basic rationale for university regulation of student conduct that would provide students with as much freedom as possible in the pursuit of their educational objectives. This document, prepared by 16 students and 4 faculty members, is a product of the seminar. Chapter 1 discusses the role of the university and student dissatisfactions which coalesced and erupted into activist demonstrations during the 1960's. Chapter 2 presents 3 commonly held theories on student discipline and offers a rationale for a more relevant disciplinary process. Chapter 3 examines the question of student rights and responsibilities in the modern university context. While pointing out that academic freedom in the fullest sense of the expression is indispensable to the existence of the university, this chapter defines the range and scale of sanctions available to the disciplinary authority within a university, and outlines activities limited or forbidden to students, for violations of which a disciplinary sanction may be imposed. Chapter 4 presents recommendations for the establishment of rule-making authority and of judicial capacity in relation to matters of student conduct and discipline. A selected bibliography is appended. (WM)
