Law, Policy and Higher Education fills a gap in the market for casebooks on higher education law, as the materials presented lend themselves to timely and important discussions of both law and policy issues.
Chapters 1 and 2 provide an overview of higher education with respect to the laws and policies that shape its roles and responsibilities in society.
Chapters 3 and 4 examine the college's employment relationship with faculty and staff.
Chapters 5, 6, and 7 explore the rights and responsibilities of students.
Chapter 8 addresses how the university affects and is affected by the intercollegiate athletic enterprise.
Chapters 9, 10, and 11 present the influence and impact of government regulations as well as higher education's efforts to shape policies that further institutional aims, and manage university resources.
Chapter 12 addresses issues of intellectual property, especially involving faculty, but with an eye on public/private partnerships, ownership, and commercialization of research.
Chapter 13 presents an exposé of persons with special needs, a largely overlooked and underserved population within the university.
A Teacher's Manual is available to professors.
This book also is available in a three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8.5 x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
