Young men's guide to campus secessionism, part 2

What exactly is campus secessionism?
The term as used here describes a legal and jurisdictional conflict, between the laws of the United States as a whole, the laws of the several States & their local powers to enforce and adjudicate them, and the question (THE question) of under what authority a given educational institution may or may not create, imagine or seek to apply its own jurisdictional powers of law, irrespective of any existing authority of federal or State laws.
“Under what authority?” is the query which summarizes the entire matter, of college and university administrations taking upon themselves plenipotentiary powers to adjudicate allegations involving any of a number of forms of sexual misconduct against individual students. These powers are exercised, under whatever authority that might be, whether or not charges of criminal acts have been brought against an alleged offender under the law of whichever State the institution is in.
The issue at hand under this current condition of campus secession is:
whether the several States may adjudicate their own laws within their own jurisdictions, or rather that on college campuses this power has been taken away from the States, under whatever authority each college and university claims it rightful to do so.
To the extent that schools now choose to make the laws of their host States inapplicable and turn their campuses into separate territories ruled separately, to that extent each school has made a conscious choice to SECEDE in effect and in practice from the rule of the United States Constitution, and has named itself as being a separate authority, a law unto itself. ...
