Compliance with federal laws such as Title IX or ADA ensures individuals’ access to opportunities and information, helping them achieve academic and professional success.
Hosted, in most cases, on the fourth Monday of each month and designed to give attendees practical and actionable information, the sessions will involve discussions of compliance basics, case studies and how campus fulfills its legal responsibilities while delivering on the imperatives of shaping tomorrow’s leaders, being the top university for innovation and positively impacting humanity.
The first session Sept. 25 will explore HIPAA, FERPA and compliance at Wardenburg Health Services. Additional example sessions, based on offerings over the 2016-17 academic year may cover: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accomodations for events; student data privacy; graduate student accomodations; minors on campus; athletic compliance; conflicts of interest; and internal monitoring and auditing.
The number of regulations and requirements that institutions must follow can seem daunting, but subject matter experts work closely with faculty and staff to develop solutions for situations—knowledge that is shared in the Ethics and Compliance monthly education series.
All sessions take place from noon to 1 p.m. in the Ice Rink Overlook Large Meeting Room at the Student Recreation Center. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to participate in networking with other attendees and are welcome to bring their lunch. Light refreshments are provided.
