“Congress shall make no law...prohibiting the free exercise thereof [religion]…”

Below are links to many diverse legal matters (some of them indirect and some potential), and venues that we think may have general relevance to academics, and some of particular interest to Christian faculty.  Included are relatively current events, special reports, sites to mine, and to round things out, studies of university professor’s attitudes.  

This is necessarily incomplete and informational only and should not be construed as legal advice.  For specific questions, you should consult a qualified attorney.

It’s also useful to keep in mind that while legal cases strongly shape the ambiance of collegial relations, they are not the only thing.  There is also a sociology of ideas and sociology of relations to consider.

Section 1: (Past) ACI Special Reports:

   Recent Reports (last two years) 

Section 2: “Selected...In the News” of Academic Relevance: 

Most sources below are from, but not limited to: The Chronicle of Higher Education (CHE), Inside Higher Education (IHE), The New York Times (NYT), The Washington Post (WP), Wall Street Journal (WSJ), et al…

Also note that we prefer IHE to CHE because IHE does not require a paid subscription for its articles and also because it allows comments on its articles; and CHE often requires a paid subscription for many of its articles and typically does not allow comments.
