Abstract: The administration of discipline at tax-supported colleges and universities has seen great change and evolution during the past thirty years, with significant case law and authoritative literature emerging from the landmark Dixon case of 1961. The major purpose of this study was the assessment of disciplinary procedures and policies used by the 11 major tax-supported colleges and universities in South Carolina, and an analysis of those procedures and policies in light of prevailing case law and authoritative opinion. The study was developed through descriptive and historical analyses of case law, legal trends, and authoritative legal and educational opinion regarding disciplinary due process and related issues at tax-supported institutions. Descriptive data and information concerning disciplinary practices at the eleven colleges and universities were collected and analyzed in terms of consensus findings resulting from the analysis of case law and expert opinion. The resulting analysis provides institutional disciplinary administrators with an assessment of their institutions' disciplinary policies and procedures, and guidelines for the retention, modification, and addition to their practices.
