Assignment 3: The Public/Private Dichotomy
It is important to know that there are distinctions between public and private institutions. Public institutions are required to adhere to state and federal laws. Comparatively, private institutions are given much more freedom in terms of the state and federal laws that guide many of the day-to-day activities in the private arena.
Understanding the significant differences between the impacts of policy and law as they relate to public and private institutions provides a foundation for an understanding of student and faculty rights and responsibilities, funding, and curriculum development.

What are the legal and ethical distinctions between public and private institutions?
