Event Description

Decoding the Changes in Higher Education Under the Trump Administration.

Only a few months ago, the higher education community sat assured that Hillary Clinton would have her hand on the Bible in January and that it could expect at least four more years of higher education policies in line with those carried out in the Obama era. That all changed in November and pundits, scholars, legal counsel, and bureaucrats have scrambled to forecast the impact of this unexpected and likely radically different reign. A lot of things will depend on how the new Education Secretary Betsy DeVos takes on things going forward.

To learn more about the new regulations and their impact, join education law expert Yolanda R. Gallegos in this session as she takes on changes in ideological approaches and handling conflicts on campuses. You will be able to equip yourself with an ideological and political framework from which to gauge, assess, and project Trump’s higher education policies.

Session Highlights:

  • Strengths and weakness of DeVos as Education Secretary
  • Changes in ideological approaches to higher education regulation
  • Challenges colleges and universities must now prepare to deal with to handle conflicts with current, written regulations, policies, and guidance and changes expected under DeVos. This includes:
    • How and whether colleges should change how it reviews and adjudicates claims of sexual assault, hate speech, and discrimination against transgender students
    • Resources a school should devote to gainful employment compliance and appeals
    • Expected legal challenges to changes by DeVos to Obama-era regulations
  • Trump University litigation: Allegations and $25 million settlement agreement
  • Neil Gorsuch: How might a Justice Gorsuch impact higher education

Who should attend:

  • Officers and owners of community colleges and other public institutions offering short-term, non-degree programs and private sector (for-profit) postsecondary institutions
  • Investors in private sector postsecondary institutions
  • Deans of students
  • Title IX coordinators
  • Postsecondary financial aid professionals
