Summary

The latest volume in the Core Concepts in Higher Education series explores the complexity of law in higher education and both the limits and opportunities of how law can promote inclusivity and access on campus. Through a historical and legal framework, this volume discusses undergraduate students' histories of inclusion and struggles for social justice in higher education by race, sex, social class, dis/ability, and sexual orientation. Bridging research, theory, and practice, Law and Social Justice in Higher Education encourages future and current higher education and student affairs practitioners to consider how they can collaborate to further a just society.  

Special features:

  • Discussion of case law illustrates the reach and limits of law and where higher education professionals can continue to push for social justice.
  • Accessible to non-lawyers, chapters highlight key legal terms and key concepts to guide readers at the beginning of each chapter.
  • End-of-chapter questions provide prompts for discussion and encourage student interactivity.
