In 1999 The Rights and Responsibilities of the Modern University launched a new and highly influential paradigm for student affairs and the law of college student safety—the facilitator university. The substantially revised and updated second edition of Rights and Responsibilities includes discussion of recent judicial, legislative and regulatory college safety mandates, modern risk management and prevention practices, and the explosion in college safety and wellness issues (suicide, active shooter violence, sexual assault etc.) while remaining faithful to the core vision of the first edition. The second edition also addresses the disturbing rise of a new nemesis of the facilitator university— “Compliance U.” Crushing new regulatory burdens significantly impact academic freedom and autonomy, and may interfere with the facilitator’s chief goal of creating a sustainable, reasonably safe and responsible college environment.
