Regulatory Compliance for Education Abroad Risk Management: A NAFSA and URMIA Seminar*

Monday, May 29, 2017, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM PT

This one-day seminar will be held prior to the NAFSA 2017 Annual Conference & Expo in Los Angeles, California and again at the URMIA Annual Conference in Orlando, on September 24.

As the numbers of students abroad increases, risk and education abroad professionals must ensure that their compliance protocols are appropriate for this overseas environment. Through a framework of case studies, participants will discuss incidents and investigations stemming from obligations under the U.S. law and regulations, such as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery), Title IX, and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe the key regulatory issues of mutual interest to education abroad and risk managers.
  • Determine institutional liability and mitigate institutional risk.
  • Discuss reporting and response to risk areas.
  • Practical application of regulatory compliance to case scenarios.

Designed for risk managers, education abroad managers, compliance officers, Title IX coordinators, and other stakeholders who are responsible for ensuring that programs offered abroad are compliant with U.S. laws and regulations and who wish to engage with each other and gain insights into the myriad opportunities for collaboration, mutual benefit, and shared success. Teams from the same institution with an identified relationship are encouraged, but not required, to attend.
