Kaplin, William A.
Designed to be used either independently or as a companion to "The Law of Higher Education" (1978), this book serves as a reference to current legal issues, as well as to primary and secondary materials concerning higher education law. Part One, Overview of Postsecondary Education Law, examines the evolution of law relating to postsecondary education, sources of postsecondary education law, and the public-private dichotomy. In Part Two, The College and Trustees, Administrators, and Agents, the question of authority and liability is discussed. Part Three, The College and the Faculty, focuses on employment policies, personnel decisions, academic freedom, and staff reduction. Part Four, The College and the Students, examines legal status, admissions, financial aid, grades and credits, student organizations, student housing, athletics, grievance systems, and procedures suspension, dismissal and other sanctions. Part Five, The College and the Community, discusses zoning, community activities, and community access to institutional property. Focus in the next two chapters is on government relations, including state systems, state regulatory laws, state chartering, federal regulation, federal aid, and civil rights compliance. The final section, The College and the Accrediting Agencies, examines accreditation systems and agencies. For reference ease, this book is organized using the same chapter, section, and sub-section titles and numbering as the previous book, including complete case and subject indexes. Also supplied are cross references to pertinent pages and sections within the new volume and within the original volume. (LC)
