Hot Topics in Higher Education Short Course

This course will examine and discuss topics in higher education law that are currently in the news. Areas to be covered will include affirmative action in higher education admissions, Title IX, faculty unionization, faculty tenure rights, and faculty and student academic freedom/freedom of expression. We will examine these issues not only through case law, statutes and regulatory guidance but also through pleadings, reports, and other documents made public in currently pending (or just concluded) cases.[1]

Pass/Fail. Enrollment limited.
