NACUA, ACE to Hold Symposium & Workshop on Higher Education Compliance

September 16, 2013

Notetaker

 

​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.

For more information and to register, see the NACUA website.
