NACUANOTES: Whose room is it anyway? Lawful entry and search of student dormitory rooms.

College and university students have strong expectations of privacy about their dormitory rooms, which they perceive - and courts have come to recognize - as the student's "home away from home."  At the same time, however, college and university officials frequently have legitimate reasons to enter and search a student's room.

NACUANOTES: Student Criminal Background Checks

Report of the May 2006 AAMC Criminal Background Check Advisory Committee

In response to inquiries by medical school administrators seeking guidance regarding criminal background checks of medical school applicants and enrolled medical students, the AAMC Group on Student Affairs (GSA) developed a comprehensive set of recommendations for consideration by the AAMC Governance. In June of 2005, the AAMC Executive Council approved the recommendation that a criminal background check be completed on all applicants accepted annually to medical school. The May 2006 report, which was approved by AAMC Executive Council in June, contains recommendations on how to implement the background checks. AAMC will develop and administer a centralized system for background checks on accepted students. The report recommends that the check be done on students before they matriculate, but after the interview and acceptance process. The role of schools will be to develop policies and procedures on how to handle the information obtained on students who do not have a spotless background check. Full implementation of the system is several years in the future.
