ABSTRACT
The article discusses the expansion of the scope of higher education regulations in the U.S. It highlights the Higher Education Act of 1965 which created an expensive set of federal programs to provide financial aid to students and to help low-income students prepare for college or university. It states that the explosion of litigation and regulation has occurred in an environment in which stakeholders of colleges and universities seem unwilling to accept negative decisions or outcomes.
