These four newsletters contain articles and columns on legal issues of interest to private colleges and universities (particularly those related to the United Methodist Church). Feature articles include: (1) "Administrators and Authority: Who Obligates the College?" which focuses on the conditions under which conflicts over alleged obligations may arise; "The Fiduciary Obligations of Faculty and Administrators," which addresses situations that may arise from the courts' willingness to characterize professors and administrators as fiduciaries of an institution; "College Housing: New Challenges to Old Services," which examines several recent challenges to residence hall policies that require students to live on campus and that affect disabled students; and "Age Discrimination and Performance Assessment," which focuses on the effects of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act on the employment and retirement of faculty. Additional features in some issues include Interrogatories, a column offering answers to readers' questions; a cumulative (1978-1998) topic index; and the College Legal Issues Higher Education Litigation Index, which reflects the legal terrain in which colleges operate. (Feature articles contain references.) (MDM)
