Student Rights and Freedoms: Toward Implementation Models.
Collins, Charles C.
Faculty, administration, and the board of trustees are dubious champions of student rights and freedoms. Without reliable protectors within the academic community, students have the options of securing their rights and freedoms by (1) the exercise of raw power, (2) finding a means to participate in the decision making process, or (3) seeking judicial protection through a student bill of rights and freedoms. Since confrontational politics has already been talked to death and since guarantees of students' rights and freedoms by the lawmakers seem remote in today's political climate, primary focus has been on the second option. Proposed models of student involvement in decision making include (1) a bicameral structure with a faculty senate as the upper house and a student assembly as the lower house, (2) an all college senate with representatives from faculty and student senates elected by a formula that would insure equity between the two groups, (3) a half time shadow administration of students to be regarded as junior apprentices by the administrative officers, and (4) participation on a board of trustees based on representation proportional to the contribution and involvement of groups that make up the basic communities of the college.
