Dynamics of Higher Education. Court and Campus--Striking a New Balance.
O'Neil, Robert M.
NACUBO Professional File, v4 n7 Aug 1973
The unrest of the 1960s brought the fields of law and higher education together in the courts. Although tranquility has returned to campus, the courts show no sign of withdrawing from the field of higher education. This paper is an examination of the role the courts will play in higher education in the decade ahead. Three broad areas of litigation are discussed: (1) the allocation of increasingly scarce resources spurred by disputes between the university and the state and by disputes between or among academic institutions; (2) access to the benefits and rewards of higher education brought on by discrimination on the basis of sex, geography, and political affiliation as well as race; and (3) participation in the making of key academic decisions by previously excluded groups and constituencies.
