Whether you have engaged in sophisticated prevention efforts or are just getting started, it is now time to improve your SDFSCA compliance efforts to reduce the risks created by high-risk alcohol and drug use. This workshop will help guide you to a greater understanding of current and potential SDFSCA compliance and provide detailed, complete guidance on cutting-edge compliance techniques---including biennial reporting.$350
Workshop: Crash Course on Critical Higher Education Law Compliance Issues for Law Schools: A Workshop for Vice, Associate, and Assistant Deans in Law Schools

Topics will include compliance issues with Title IX, EDGAR Part 86, Clery Act and other rapidly expanding regulatory rules and guidelines. However, this workshop is more than a higher education regulatory compliance primer---it is designed to help you identify the broader law and policy questions you should be asking and provide you with invaluable resources to help you find the answers you need. Your deliverables will include substantial outlines (on topics such as bar certification) and a bibliography of books and articles that you will refer to again and again. (Lunch Included). $389

Workshop: Title IX Best Practices
Following the April 4th 2011 “Dear Colleague” letter from the Department of Education, and the increased enforcement and investigation efforts that accompanied it, many institutions struggled to come into compliance and experienced significant stress and fear in their attempts to do so. However, through collaboration with the Department and tireless efforts to create safer campuses, examples of success and best practices have emerged. This workshop will explore some of those examples, particularly the recently concluded Yale investigation, to help guide you and your campus to successful compliance. Please note that this is included with main conference registration.
If you are registering only for this event, the cost is $325
