Higher Education Law: Current Developments and Issues.
Young, D. Parker
During the past dozen years administrators in higher education have been faced with student action that took the form of protest and that many times became violent. Student action is somewhat quieter now and the battleground has shifted largely from the campus to the courtroom. Both procedural and substantive due process are recognized by the courts as rights applicable to the college setting. Students have also pressed for and received recognition that the First Amendment freedoms of speech and expression apply to them. The guidelines included here are offered to help institutions meet the standards of the courts and of applicable legal statutes. The guidelines cover the implications of the new age of majority, the actions students have taken against student activity fees, and the implications of federal legislation, notably Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the General Education Provisions Act (with the "Buckley Amendment").
