The National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA), in cooperation with ACE, will hold a symposium and workshop Nov. 6-8 in Washington, DC, on “Higher Education Compliance Programs and Obligations.”
College and university general counsel consistently report that complying with the ever-growing body of federal regulation is the top challenge they face. And counsel are not alone: each department, school and business unit on campus has compliance obligations.
This first-of-its-kind program will feature a symposium where thought leaders, including college presidents, higher education association executives, and legislative policy experts, discuss the big picture of compliance: Why do legislators and agencies regulate? How do we balance accountability with regulation? How can colleges adapt to their growing and changing compliance obligations?
The program will continue with a roundtable luncheon providing an opportunity for attendees to discuss the issues raised during the symposium and a two-day program of legal education workshop sessions and discussion groups, including sessions on:
Rolling out a compliance program, keeping it running effectively, and evaluating its success;
Collaborating with compliance partners on campus—counsel, compliance officers, risk managers and beyond;
Risk management and how to make it part of your institution’s strategy; and
Athletics compliance, minors on campus, distance education and MOOCs, data privacy and security, sexual assault and Title IX compliance, international compliance issues, and much more.
