Denver (Orlando World Center Marriott)
Program Description: Community colleges are increasingly confronted with a host of federal and state laws and regulations, and accrediting commission requirements, that threaten to increase costs while reducing flexibility. The lengthy and complex Program Integrity Regulations issued by the US Department of Education last year are one example; the recognition that each of the fifty states has its own rules governing cross-border learning has been another revelation. This session will explore important legal developments in the context of the needs and priorities of community colleges. Co-Presenters William Mullowney, Vice President and General Counsel at Valencia College, and AACC General Counsel Michael Goldstein will be joined by other community college legal authorities. This session is co-sponsored by the National Association of College and University Attorneys.
