Legal Issues for Postsecondary Education. Briefing Papers II.
Blumer, Dennis H., Ed.
This publication is intended to outline basic legal issues in key areas confronting the postsecondary education community, and to provide background information of which every college administrator should be aware. Chapter I, "Employment, Evaluation, and Retention or Nonretention of Faculty and Staff," discusses the legal obligations and rights of institutions of higher education as employers. Chapter II, "Security on the Campus," deals with the growing complexities of problems related to student unrest and the increasing incidence of crime on campus. Chapter III, "Copyright on Campus," summarizes some of the elements of copyright law so that administrators can be alert to potential rights and problems, and can recognize the need and appropriate time to secure the services of experienced legal counsel. Chapter IV, "Disputes Settlements--Grievance and Arbitration Procedures," details the objectives to be used in developing and implementing grievance procedures, frequent subjects of grievances, and typical arbitration procedures. Chapter V, "Dealing with Federal Regulatory Agencies," discusses the extended constitutional rights of students and teachers as recognized by the courts, the increasing power of federal regulatory agencies, and the methods an institution may use to challenge arbitrary agency actions.
