Higher Education: The Law and Constructive Change.
Young, D. Parker, Ed.
Many changes have taken place on campus due to court decisions, statutes, and accompanying guidelines. This document presents and discusses judicial decisions and trends and their implication for and application to the posture of academic decision making. Discussed is: (1) how colleges and universities, through their catalogs, brochures, handbooks, etc. can possibly be accused of misleading the prospective student; (2) the legal aspects of current student issues; (3) the "Buckley Amendment" as an opportunity for constructive change in higher education; (4) the implications of public support for private higher education; (5) legal issues in faculty employment, ranging from initial employment to dismissal of faculty for reasons of financial exigency, and outlining minimum due process procedures concerning faculty employment; and (6) legal liability, both under civil rights laws and actions in tort.
