University IP and OpenSource

First a somewhat OT question...
may a  public university assert a blanket right to IP produced with
university resources?  This is in reference to <paying> student work not
that of <paid> faculty and staff.  my university claims it does.

second question...
can said university compel the creators of would-be open source projects
to license these projects under its own terms, whether it be YAOSL or
something in even greater contrast to the desires of the student
creators of the work.

Thank you for your thoughts,
