Colleges and universities grapple continuously with the changing nature of higher education discrimination law. In recent years, the activism of those on campus seeking greater protections and those opposing the expansion of protections have left colleges and universities trying to create welcoming climates and, at the same time, promote the free exchange of ideas and preserve academic freedom.
The National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA), in cooperation with ACE, will hold a continuing legal education workshop March 29-31 in Seattle to look at these and other issues connected to higher education discrimination law.
This in-depth workshop will combine practical strategies and advice on how institutions can avoid discrimination claims and liability. Sessions will include:
- Top trends and emerging issues in higher education discrimination law;
- Evolving legal challenges impacting transgender students and employees; and
- Practice tips for dealing with new and ongoing investigations during the transition of administrations.
In addition to general sessions, discussion groups will allow participants to exchange ideas, pose questions and share experiences and solutions with colleagues in a smaller setting. Discussion group topics will include exploring different investigative models and obligations related to study abroad and foreign students on campus.
