Decision-Making and the Law in Higher Education--Emphasis on Student Rights: Essay and Bibliography.
Tice, Terrence N.
The essay and bibliography presented here are designed for general use among those concerned with questions of campus rights and responsibilities and with the application of legal principles in campus decision-making. The primary focus is on student rights issues. The discussion falls into three parts: (1) "Law and Morality in the Open Society" is concerned with defining the open society and discussing how morality works in this ideal situation. (2) "Legal, Institutional, and Moral Rights" gives specific definitions and examples of these various kinds of rights, concentrating on the academic context. (3) "Guidelines for Administrative Decisions Concerning Students" suggests considering alternative models of student-institutional relationships, developing a campus judiciary system, setting up a list of policy areas to be developed that affect basic rights, preparing for greater involvement with the courts, and improving skills for managing and utilizing conflicts. An annotated bibliography of 181 items covers college law, faculty rights and responsibliities, students in collective bargaining, junior and community college situations, and the legal background. Subject and author indexes and a table of court cases are also appended. (Author/MJK)
