Proceedings of Conference on Higher Education: The Law and Individual Rights and Responsibilities.
Young, D. Parker, Ed.
Individual rights and responsibilities are of paramount concern as courts have been increasingly called upon to define them in the wake of campus protests during the 60's. This was the theme of the conference "Higher Education: The Law and Individual Rights and Responsibilities." The central purpose of the conference was to present and discuss judicial decisions and trends and their implications for the applications to the posture of academic decisionmaking. The topics discussed by the conference speakers were: constitutional dimensions of student protest; students' right to privacy; administrators' rights and responsibilities; the rights and responsibilities of students in private institutions; academic freedom ad due process in the classroom; and constitutional rights and nonrenewal of faculty contracts.
