Federal Regulations and Higher Education: An Overview for College and University Administrators.
Stein, Ronald H.; Zuckerman, Judy
Administrator's Update, v2 n1 Sum 1980
The number of pages in the Federal Register devoted to regulations affecting higher education increased 1,000 percent from 1965 to 1977. It is suggested that it is beneficial for all campus administrators to be aware of the central issues involved in federal regulations. A synopsis of the regulations with which administrators most frequently come in contact is presented. These include: the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, concerning access to student records; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1979, covering nondiscrimination on the basis of handicap; and student consumer information regulations. In each case, the principle, application, and scope of the regulations are examined and discussed briefly. A bibliography is appended. (MSE)
