Hendrickson, Robert M.
This book defines the relationship between higher education corporations and their various constituencies: federal, state and local governments; employees; and students. The first chapter, "Higher Education Law," details the legal background. The second chapter, "Intergovernmental Relations," discusses litigation which defined the nature of the relationships between branches of government and among levels of government. The third chapter, "Faculty Employment Issues," reviews the case law and legal issues for employee actions surrounding tenure review, contract renewal and related issues as well as issues surrounding employee speech rights. The fourth chapter, "The Quest for Equity in Employment in Higher Education," treats the federal legislation that has molded current practice in this area. Chapter 5, "Collective Bargaining in Higher Education," treats organization, negotiation, grievance, binding arbitration, and the First Amendment's role. The sixth chapter, "Student-Institutional Relationships," examines admission (racial, gender and handicapped discrimination), economic access, constitutional rights, and implications for administration. Chapter 7, "The Student-Institutional Relationship and Liability," explores the contractual relationship, the fiduciary relationship and other liabilities. Also included is a table of significant cases, an index and over 100 references. (JB)
