Higher Education and the Law
This class will look at the law and its relationships to higher education. What does society expect from higher education and how does the law reflect those expectations? Further what does higher education expect form the law? What is academic freedom and how is it viewed by the courts. To examine these questions the class will focus on a number of current issues that are central to higher education including sexual assault, hate speech, affirmative action and faculty selection and retention.
