NACUA, Higher Education Groups Launch Higheredcompliance.org

March 05, 2012

 

​The National Association of College and University Attorneys and 20 higher education associations—including ACE—have launched the Higher Education Compliance Alliance website, a resource to help administrators better understand the ever-growing number of federal regulations for colleges and universities.

Aggregating compliance news and resources from participating associations, government agencies and other sites like the Catholic University of America's (DC) Campus Legal Information Clearinghouse, the new site is designed to be a continuously updated resource for administrators and others on campus seeking to understand their compliance obligations.

Many of the resources are free; additional resources are available via password to members of the association providing the resource. Topics covered include affirmative action, accreditation, conflict of interest, grants management, immigration, international programs, student privacy, tax issues and more.
