  • This course will study multiple aspects of colleges and universities. We will examine the public mission of higher education institutions and the way this has been altered by privatization and “corporatization” trends that encourage colleges and universities to function as market actors. Other topics to be explored include the changing structure of labor in the university, with the expansion of the administration, the reduction of tenure-track/tenured faculty lines, and the growth of contingent faculty and graduate student employment in teaching and research. The course will examine the impact of such trends and changes on faculty and student rights, including academic freedom, freedom of speech, due process, shared governance, and rights to unionize and collectively bargain.

  • While the Brown decision seemed to end de jure segregation in America, a series of court cases and continuing housing, lending and other nationwide policies interfered with our Nation’s ability to end de facto segregation. This course will critically examine US and state Supreme Court decisions and civil rights commentary to try and understand what happened after the historic 1954 Brown decision in order to understand why many observers believe we are still more than less a segregated society.
