Though the concept of in loco parentis as applied to higher education lost its legal status during the late 1960s and early 1970s, many higher education authorities believe that the underlying philosophy of in loco parentis is re-emerging. This paper examines the history of the in loco parentis doctrine in American higher education. By drawing on a number of sources, the fluctuating legal and philosophical applications of the doctrine are traced from their origins in colonial America to their status in the higher education system of today.
