DISCLAIMER: This site is not connected with, authorized by, sponsored by, nor approved by the University of Alabama System or the University of Alabama in Huntsville in any way and makes no representations of any affiliation whatsoever with either.

These links are arranged by categories.  Any category with an entry reflecting the number of entries can be collapsed by left clicking on the category description and expanded by left clicking on that description again. 

Clicking on a link under a category will take you to a table entry which restates the entry's name under the heading "Subject" and has a corresponding entry entitled "Document" on the right.  Under the Document heading will always be a link which you may left click on to go to the location.  In many cases, under that link will be a short description of what is available at that link.  Above the "Subject" entry will be an entry "Top" which returns you to the link from which you came.  It may also contain entries for "Next" and "Previous" which allow you to navigate through the table entries without returning the category listing.

All of the links and descriptions are on a single page.  While this makes the initial download take longer, it allows you to search all of the categories and descriptions for key words using your browser's Find function.  To make full use of this feature you must leave all categories expanded.  Internet Explorer uses Control/F or Edit|Find (On this Page) to find key words.

ACE - Legal Issues for Department Chairs Fri May-26-06 8:34am http://www.acenet.edu/resources/chairs/index.cfm?section=4&subsection=19

ACE - Legal Issues for Department Chairs

The section on legal issues for chairs is divided into six subsections:

* Basic principles: General advice to orient chairs to the legal concerns of their position.

* Comprehensive guides: Two moderately lengthy guides with particular sections that readers may wish to consult as needs and interests suggest.

* Special topics: Covers many of the basic aspects of a chair’s work, such as hiring, reviewing, and terminating faculty (and staff), as well as the bane of many a chair’s existence—conflict management.

* Other legal issues: Special topics that are constrained by legal requirements and are the source of many legal conflicts in higher education.

* Other web sites: A number of useful links to materials available on the web.

* Bibliography: A highly selective list of books that offer sound legal advice, easily understood by non-lawyers.

Modeled on recent government programs designed to consolidate information on individuals into massive databases, our system does the opposite, allowing you to scrutinize those in government. Citizens are able to explore data, track events, find patterns, and build risk profiles, all in an effort to encourage and motivate action. We like to think of it as a Citizen’s Intelligence Agency, giving people similar tools and technologies to those held by their government.

Subject: Document:
Race-Neutral Approaches to Diversity http://www.ed.gov/offices/OCR/raceneutralreport.html

Race-Neutral Approaches to Diversity - Department of Education

This publication describes innovative “race-neutral” programs being implemented across the country. Educational institutions will find that there are dozens of race-neutral options available to them. They will also find that the early results from these programs are promising. Moreover, the initial positive results are only the beginning; the full advantages of many of the race-neutral alternatives described in this publication will not be fully felt until they are seriously implemented and several classes of students have been able to benefit from them.

This publication does not endorse any particular program discussed in these pages.

Subject: Document:
GSA ADA Signage Guidelines http://hydra.gsa.gov/pbs/firstimpressions/signage/graphicstandards/ada_code.html

ADA and other Codes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Signage in public areas of federal buildings is subject compliance with federal, state and local code requirements, requiring the use of certain symbols, messages and graphic standards (Fig. 1). To provide adequate signing for all users, including persons with disabilities, the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), first published in the Federal Register on July 26, 1991 describes specific requirements for the use of typestyles, minimum type sizes, message contrast, symbols, Braille characters, tactile messages, sign background gloss and sign placement. A summation of the ADA as it applies to signage can be found in the Society for Environmental Graphic Design “White Paper”, available through the SEGD, 401 F Street N. W., Suite 333, Washington, D.C. 20001. State and local sign codes vary considerably, such as symbol signs for toilet room doors required in California (Fig. 2). To determine sign requirements for state and local codes, contact a design professional or your local sign contractor.

Copyright Issues in Digital Media

From the Congressional Budget Office, August 2004

This Congressional Budget Office (CBO) paper reviews current copyright law in the United States and considers the unique aspects of digital technology's challenge to that law. It also examines the prospects for a market-based resolution to copyright disputes over digital content and explores the effect of potential revisions to copyright law on economic efficiency and equity. While this analysis suggests some issues and concerns that the Congress may wish to consider during its deliberations about any changes in copyright law, in keeping with CBO's mandate to provide objective, impartial analysis, the paper makes no policy recommendations.

Ownership of Electronic Course Materials in Higher Education

by Dan L. Burk

The introduction of sophisticated information technology to higher education is now forcing faculty and administrators to reexamine the traditional allocations of ownership interests in course materials. This article has been prepared to alert educators and administrators in higher educational institutions to the issues surrounding ownership of electronic course materials. In particular, this article focuses on the allocation of copyright ownership in electronic course materials between faculty and their sponsoring institutions. The article reviews relevant copyright basics, the work-made-for-hire doctrine, and options for contractual allocations of copyrights. The discussion includes a series of criteria that should be considered in formulating an institution's intellectual property policy.

Collection of Music Copyright Infringement Opinions http://library.law.columbia.edu/music_plagiarism/index2.html

From Columbia Law School

The purpose of this project is to capitalize on the distributed nature of digital information systems to collect, organize and distribute graphic and audio materials associated with music copyright infringement cases in the United States from the middle of the nineteenth century on. This documentation, especially for cases over twenty-five years old, is difficult to obtain and has never before been systematically collected or published in print or electronic format. Our goal is to accumulate and publish a complete collection of music copyright infringement opinions, comments about the musical works they consider, and graphic and sound files of relevant portions of these works.

College and university students are increasingly using their institutions' networks to access and illegally duplicate MP3 music files and other copyrighted digital content. Institutions of higher education are challenged to restrict this practice through education, policy, and technology while searching with the entertainment industry for viable and legal online alternatives.

Among other issues, the rates in the proposed license appear to be out of line with those negotiated with the other organizations. NACUBO recommends that institutions hold off on signing a new agreement with SESAC until further notice.

* Other legal issues: Special topics that are constrained by legal requirements and are the source of many legal conflicts in higher education.

* Other web sites: A number of useful links to materials available on the web.

Not All Criminal Records Checks Are Created Equal http://www.virtualchase.com/articles/criminal_checks.html

Not All Criminal Records Checks Are Created Equal

Lynn Peterson, PFC Information Services, Inc.

During the past year a new type of pre-employment background check called the National Criminal File (NCF) became available. There are 38 to 50 states included, and the number of records in these three NCF databases ranges from 60 million to as many as 133 million. While those numbers sound impressive, any company that utilizes the National Criminal File as their primary means of checking for criminal records should read the fine print.

There are four different kinds of records, all of which are all referred to as "criminal records."

1. Arrest Records—law enforcement records of arrests.
2. Criminal Court Records—local, state or federal records.
3. Corrections Records—prison records.
4. State Criminal Repository Records—statewide records made up of arrest records, criminal court records and correction records.

This article discusses the differences among these records and how they come into play with the National Criminal File.

Not All Criminal Records Checks Are Created Equal

Lynn Peterson, PFC Information Services, Inc.

During the past year a new type of pre-employment background check called the National Criminal File (NCF) became available. There are 38 to 50 states included, and the number of records in these three NCF databases ranges from 60 million to as many as 133 million. While those numbers sound impressive, any company that utilizes the National Criminal File as their primary means of checking for criminal records should read the fine print.

There are four different kinds of records, all of which are all referred to as "criminal records."

1. Arrest Records—law enforcement records of arrests.
2. Criminal Court Records—local, state or federal records.
3. Corrections Records—prison records.
4. State Criminal Repository Records—statewide records made up of arrest records, criminal court records and correction records.

This article discusses the differences among these records and how they come into play with the National Criminal File.

Ombudsman Services and The Law

The ESGR Ombudsmen Services Program was established to address potential problems arising among the nation's employers regarding the phasing out of the "draft" or conscription of people into the military by the Selective Service and the establishment of the all-volunteer force. There was concern that the nation's employers, who were used to some of their employees serving in the National Guard and Reserve as an alternative to compulsory active duty service, might question the necessity of such service in a purely voluntary military system. The Ombudsmen Services Program was established in response. It provides information, counseling, and informal mediation of issues relating to compliance with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).

DOL Overtime Advisor http://www.dol.gov/elaws/overtime.htm

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which was first enacted in 1938, includes minimum wage, overtime pay and child labor protections for workers in the United States. The FLSA has always included exemptions for certain executive, administrative, professional and outside sales workers. More recently, the Congress added exemptions for certain types of occupations in the computer field.

To help workers and employers understand their rights and responsibilities under the Regulations, Part 541, the Department has developed this FLSA Overtime Security Advisor. DOL recently updated these regulations which became effective August 23, 2004. The Overtime Security Advisor is intended to help workers and employers identify:

1. Those workers who are entitled to the minimum wage and overtime pay protections of the FLSA; and
2. Those who, by law, are not subject to the FLSA's minimum wage and overtime pay requirements.

ED - "Legitimate Educational Interest" http://nces.ed.gov/pubs97/p97527/Sec4_txt.htm#Section%204--Guidelines%20B

In determining the school officials who might need access to education records, it may be more practical to establish broad position criteria than to list exactly who, or what individual positions, qualify. General criteria such as these might be useful:

A person employed by the agency or school in an administrative, counseling, supervisory, academic, student support services, or research position, or a support person to these positions. A person employed by or under contract to the agency or school to perform a special task Identifying a person as a school official does not automatically grant him or her unlimited access to education records. The existence of a legitimate educational interest may need to be determined case-by-case. A sample policy statement of what constitutes legitimate educational interest might include wording such as the following: A school official is determined to have legitimate educational interest if the information requested is (1) necessary for that official to perform appropriate tasks that are specified in his or her position description or by a contract agreement; (2) used within the context of official agency or school business and not for purposes extraneous to the official's areas of responsibility or to the agency or school; (3) relevant to the accomplishment of some task or to a determination about the student; and (4) consistent with the purposes for which the data are maintained.

Dear Colleague Letter, April 12, 2002

The purpose of this guidance is to provide you with an overview of recent changes made by Congress to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) in response to the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States. In so doing, we also will provide an overview of the relevant provisions of current law. The changes to FERPA became effective on October 26, 2001, when the President signed into law the “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA PATRIOT ACT) Act of 2001.” (Public Law 107-56; 115 Stat. 272.) Section 507 of the USA PATRIOT ACT amends FERPA, and is attached for your convenience at the end of this letter.

The Department has historically interpreted an IRS summons to constitute a "lawfully issued subpoena" under FERPA. Enclosed for your reference is this Office's letter of July 3, 1997, that also addresses this matter. Accordingly, an educational agency or institution may, in order to comply with an IRS summons, disclose to agents of the IRS personally identifiable information from education records without a parent or student's written consent, as long as the educational agency or institution has followed the FERPA requirements set forth at 34 CFR § 99.31(a)(9) for response to a court order or subpoena.
I trust this is responsive to your inquiry.

We contacted the Department of Education’s Family Policy Compliance Office, which administers FERPA and possesses subject matter expertise in that statute. We were informed that the Department of Education has a long-standing position on this issue. It has historically viewed an IRS summons as a “lawfully issued subpoena” under FERPA. Thus, an educational institution can comply with an IRS summons without a parent’s or student’s written consent for a release of records, so long as that institution follows the requirements of 34 C.F.R. § 99.31(a)(9). That regulation requires an educational institution to make a “reasonable effort to notify the parent or eligible student of the order or subpoena in advance of compliance, so that the parent or eligible student may seek protective action, ... .”

Osborn vs. Univ of Wisconsin - July 02 Wisc. Sup. Ct. http://www.courts.state.wi.us/sc/opinions/00/pdf/00-2861.pdf

Involved an open records request by the Center for Equal Opportunity for applicants' records. The Supreme Court reversed the Ct. of Appeals, and ordered U.W. to redact and release records. The Court concluded that as long as University takes out all personally identifiable information, there is no FERPA violation, and that in those cases where releasing the requested scores etc. would somehow involve disclosure of personally identifiable characteristics, then the university need not disclose. The decision will require redaction of thousands of records. The Court allowed the University to charge a fee for the "actual, necessary and direct costs" of complying with the requests. (This case summary from Margaret O'Donnell as posted on NACUANet, July 2, 2002.)

Section 2, Guidelines, Summary of Key Federal Laws, Protecting the Privacy of Student Records.

E4. Using Social Security Numbers as Student Identification Codes

Section 7(a) of the Privacy Act of 1974 addresses the use of social security numbers by federal, state, or local governments. It states that it is

...unlawful for any federal, state, or local government agency to deny to any individual any right, benefit or privilege provided by law because of such individual's refusal to disclose his social security account number
When government agencies collect social security numbers for reasons other than those allowed in the original law, they must specify how the numbers will be used and the limits of their use. Requests for social security numbers must be accompanied by the following notice:
Any federal, state, or local government agency which requests an individual to disclosehis social security account number shall inform that individual whether that disclosure is mandatory or voluntary, by what statutory or other authority such number is solicited, and what uses will be made of it.
State and local education agencies can minimize challenges to their use of social security numbers for student records identification by creating alternative identification numbers for students whose parents object to using social security numbers for identification.

The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.

One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the University in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the University has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.

A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.

If a state agency is not a “covered entity”, as that term is defined at 45 CFR 160.103, it is not required to comply with the HIPAA Privacy Rule and, thus, any disclosure of information by the state agency pursuant to its state public records law would not be subject to the Privacy Rule.

If a state agency is a covered entity, however, the Privacy Rule applies to its disclosures of protected health information. The Privacy Rule permits a covered entity to use and disclose protected health information as required by other law, including state law. See 45 CFR 164.512(a). Thus, where a state public records law mandates that a covered entity disclose protected health information, the covered entity is permitted by the Privacy Rule to make the disclosure, provided the disclosure complies with and is limited to the relevant requirements of the public records law.

However, where a state public records law only permits, and does not mandate, the disclosure of protected health information, or where exceptions or other qualifications apply to exempt the protected health information from the state law’s disclosure requirement, such disclosures are not “required by law” and thus, would not fall within § 164.512(a) of the Privacy Rule. For example, if a state public records law includes an exemption that affords a state agency discretion not to disclose medical or other information where such disclosure would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, the disclosure of such records is not required by the public records law, and therefore is not permissible under § 164.512(a). In such cases, a covered entity only would be able to make the disclosure if permitted by another provision of the Privacy Rule.

As an example of how the Privacy Rule would apply in the case where an exemption exists in a freedom of information law, see the December 2000 Privacy Rule preamble discussion regarding the relationship of the Privacy Rule with the federal Freedom of Information Act (64 FR 82482).

Is a Health FSA Exempt From HIPAA's Privacy Rules?

Under current law, your company's health FSA must comply with HIPAA's privacy rules. Health FSAs are subject to HIPAA privacy because they are "health plans." Although many health FSAs are "excepted benefits" for purposes of HIPAA's portability rules (i.e., HIPAA's rules regarding preexisting condition exclusions (PCEs), special enrollment, and nondiscrimination), they are not excepted benefits for purposes of HIPAA's administrative simplification provisions, including the privacy rules.

What is a "business associate"

A business associate is a person or entity who provides certain functions, activities, or services for or to a covered entity, involving the use and/or disclosure of PHI.
A business associate is not a member of the health care provider, health plan, or other covered entity's workforce.
A health care provider, health plan, or other covered entity can also be a business associate to another covered entity.
The rule includes exceptions. The business associate requirements do not apply to covered entities who disclose PHI to providers for treatment purposes - for example, information exchanges between a hospital and physicians with admitting privileges at the hospital.

Publicity and Privacy Rights of Individuals

You may need permission to photograph people due to state laws giving individuals privacy and publicity rights.

Most states in the US recognize that individuals have a right of privacy. The right of privacy gives an individual a legal claim against someone who intrudes on the individual's physical solitude or seclusion, and against those who publicly disclose private facts. Unless you have permission, avoid publishing or distributing any photo of an individual that reveals private facts about the individual (particularly if revealing those private facts might embarrass the individual).

Almost half the states in the US recognize that individuals have a right of publicity. The right of publicity gives an individual a legal claim against one who uses the individual's name, face, image, or voice for commercial benefit without obtaining permission. In case you are wondering how the news media handle this, newspapers and news magazines have a "fair use" privilege to publish names or images in connection with reporting a newsworthy event.

Be particularly careful about celebrities. Using a photograph of a celebrity for your own commercial gain - for example, posting a photo you took of Clint Eastwood on your business's marketing material or Web site - is asking for a lawsuit, even if you took the photograph when you ran into Clint on a public street.

Commercial photographers avoid right of publicity/privacy lawsuits by obtaining photographic releases from people shown in the their shots. If you are considering selling your photos or using them on your Web site, you may want to do the same. The Multimedia Law and Business Handbook contains a sample release. Experienced performers and models are accustomed to signing these releases.

Wiretap Statutes and Telephone Monitoring
Previous   Top
Subject: Document:
Wiretap Statutes and Telephone Monitoring http://www.prestongates.com/publications/presentation.asp?pubID=214#wiret

D. Wiretap Statutes and Telephone Monitoring

Telephone monitoring is one of the most common forms of employee monitoring and surveillance. There are two types of legal risks posed by such monitoring: (1) common law invasion of privacy claims for an unwarranted intrusion on an individual's private affairs, and (2) violation of federal or state wiretapping statutes.

As to the invasion of privacy claims, one Oregon case suggests that this theory may be viable, at least in cases where the employees have permission to use work phones for personal calls, and the employer listens in. See Oliver v. Pacific Northwest Bell, 53 Or. App. 604, 632 P.2d 1295, rev. denied, 292 Or. 108, 642 P.2d 310 (1981) (lawsuit dismissed where employee's evidence showed employer may have listened to other employee's conversations, but not to his).

In another case, an employee of a city dispatch center sued her public employer after her telephone calls were taped and monitored. Hart v. Clearfield City, 815 F. Supp. 1544 (D. Utah 1993). The court held that the employee had no reasonable expectation of privacy with respect to her telephone calls because a) calls were routinely recorded; b) the employee held a sensitive position and critical issues were discussed on the telephone; and c) calls were frequently reviewed for business purposes.

To mitigate the risk of invasion of privacy claims, employers should take steps to prevent or minimize creating an employee's reasonable expectation of privacy. For example, an employer should provide advance written notice that the employer will periodically monitor telephone calls. If while monitoring an employer learns the call is a personal call, the employer should terminate monitoring activity.

Callers leaving messages on pagers may also have no reasonable expectation of privacy. In a criminal case, the Washington Court of Appeals upheld the conviction of a defendant who called a pager that had been confiscated by police. State v. Wojtyna, 70 Wash. App. 689, 855 P.2d 315 (1993). The court cited with approval a federal decision which reasoned that because a caller to a pager has no indication that the message is actually received by the intended recipient, the caller runs the risk that the message will be received by others. See also Bohach v. City of Reno, 932 F. Supp. 1232 (D. Nev. 1996).

As to the federal and state wiretapping laws, exceptions to those laws may provide the necessary leeway for employers to monitor calls. Federal law prohibits intentional interception or wiretapping of telephone systems by private individuals. See 18 U.S.C. § 2511 et seq. Two exceptions appear to cover employers, however. The "telephone extension" exception allows employers to monitor employee calls "in the ordinary course of business." One court has interpreted the "ordinary course of business" exception to restrict employers from listening to their employees' personal calls. It concluded that once an employer determines an intercepted call is personal, monitoring must cease. Watkins v. L. M. Berry Co., 704 F.2d 577 (11th Cir. 1983). See also Arias v. Mutual Central Alarm Services, 182 F.R.D. 407 (S.D.N.Y. 1998).

To better protect themselves under this exception, employers should have their employees consent in writing to the monitoring. Although implied consent may be shown if an employee knew of or assented to monitored phone calls at the workplace, an employer's mere suggestion that personal calls might be monitored to curb excessive phone use may not suffice to establish implied consent. Deal v. Spears, 980 F.2d 1153 (8th Cir. 1992).

The other "provider" exception under federal law permits "a provider of wire or electronic communications service, whose facilities are used in the transmission of a wire or electronic communication, to intercept, disclose, or use that communication…while engaged in any activity which is a necessary incident to the rendition of…service or to the protection of the rights or property of the provider of that service…." 18 U.S.C. § 2511(2)(a)(i). While this exception is most frequently used by telephone companies to check service quality and mechanical functions, a federal district court in Florida construed it to allow an employer to intercept and record the telephone conversations of its employee on a work-provided cellular telephone. U.S. v. McLaren, 957 F. Supp. 215 (M.D. Fla. 1997). The employer, AT&T Wireless Services, was an electronic communications service provider that monitored the conversations after having reasonable cause to suspect that the employee was using the phone to further a cell-phone cloning fraud.

The federal wiretapping statute also may not protect employee pager messages because the treatment of messages saved in a pager system may be considered "electronic storage" rather than "electronic communication." Access to information in electronic storage is governed by different statutory sections than those governing electronic communications themselves. 28 U.S.C. §§ 2701-11. In Bohach v. City of Reno, 932 F. Supp. 1232 (D. Nev. 1996), the court addressed whether police officers could receive a preliminary injunction to halt investigation into their alleged misuse of their employer's pager system based on their claim that the employer's investigation violated the Fourth Amendment and the federal wiretapping statute. The court discussed whether the officers had any expectation of privacy in pager messages that were sent to one another over their employer's pager system and determined that there was no objective expectation of privacy in the pager messages. The court also noted that under the wiretapping statute, service providers of electronic stored communications could access stored communications. 28 U.S.C. § 2701 (c)(1). The court determined that the city was the service provider of the electronic pager system, which precluded it from liability for accessing the stored pager messages.

The federal wiretapping statute also may prohibit recording employee conversations without their knowledge. The statute prohibits interception, disclosure, or intentional use of an oral communication. 18 U.S.C. § 2511. Oral communication is defined to mean communications uttered by a person who demonstrates an expectation that the communication is not subject to interception and that the circumstances justify such an expectation. 18 U.S.C. § 2510(2). In Dorris v. Absher, 179 F.3d 420 (6th Cir. 1999), four county employees sued their employer and their supervisor under the federal wiretapping statute. The supervisor had surreptitiously taped several employee conversations regarding him. The court addressed whether the employees had a reasonable expectation that their private conversations would not be subject to interception. It determined that they did have an expectation of privacy and noted that the circumstances warranted an expectation of privacy due to the inability of anyone to access the closed room without their knowledge, their cessation of the conversations whenever a vehicle pulled into the gravel parking lot or the telephone rang, and their harsh criticism of their supervisor. The county settled the claims against it, and the court affirmed the award of damages against the supervisor for violation of the wiretapping statute.

The Washington State wiretapping statute appears stricter than its federal counterpart. Where federal law allows interception or recording where one party consents, Washington law requires all parties to consent. See RCW 9.73.030. The key question which has not yet been answered under the statute is whether employee business calls may be considered "private," and thus protected under the statute. The Washington Supreme Court has indicated that whether a conversation or communication is private is a question of fact determined by the reasonable expectations of the parties - an analysis which in turn depends on consideration of all the surrounding circumstances. See State v. Faford, 128 Wash.2d 476, 910 P.2d 447 (1996). See also Kadovanian v. Bellingham Police, 119 Wash.2d 178, 829 P.2d 1061 (1992); State v D.J.W., 76 Wash. App. 135, 882 P.2d 1199 (1994); State v Slemme, 45 Wash. App. 45, 738 P.2d 251 (1957); State v. Forrester, 21 Wash. App. 855, 587 P.2d 179 (1978). Because the question of whether an employee's business calls should be considered private has not yet been answered in Washington, employers should be aware that even if their employees consent to monitoring, the employers may be violating the statute if they do not have the customer's consent to monitor the call.

Race-Neutral Approaches to Diversity - Department of Education

This publication describes innovative “race-neutral” programs being implemented across the country. Educational institutions will find that there are dozens of race-neutral options available to them. They will also find that the early results from these programs are promising. Moreover, the initial positive results are only the beginning; the full advantages of many of the race-neutral alternatives described in this publication will not be fully felt until they are seriously implemented and several classes of students have been able to benefit from them.

This publication does not endorse any particular program discussed in these pages. Rather, our hope is to foster innovative thinking about using race-neutral means to produce diversity among educational institutions. The purpose of this publication is to help create a positive climate in which such race-neutral alternatives can be seriously considered.
