Legal Issues in Higher Education

SED AP 755

AP 755 is designed to consider issues that arise in the administration of institutions of higher education and the ethical and legal principles applicable to their resolution. Educational institutions experience difficult legal and policy decisions similar to every other industry, including but not limited to situations regarding freedom of speech, expression, and association; due process and right to privacy; discrimination on the basis of identity; use of alcohol; and ownership and use of intellectual property. This course will explore the shifting perspectives on higher education law and how those legal decisions impact one's work in higher education. Students will examine the foundations of higher education law, analyze cases, and explore application of the law in practice to help them make sound decisions in their various roles in education. 4 cr.
