Higher Education: The Law and Institutional Response. Proceedings.
Young, D. Parker, Ed.
The legal aspects of many campus issues were the concerns of the conference "Higher Education: The Law and Institutional Response." The central purpose of the conference was to present and discuss judicial decisions and trends and their implications for and applications to the posture of academic decisionmaking. The issues of concern were questioned and examined not from a philosophical or sociological point of view but in light of court decisions and precedents. The topics discussed by the conference speakers are the subject of this publication. The topics of the speakers include: undergraduate education; student organizations and publications; impact of the Tinker decision; ramifications of lowering the majority age; academic freedom and due process; women's rights; and the Supreme Court's view of faculty employment rights.
