Training Overview

Does your school comply with student support laws? Learn your legal obligations and practical strategies.

As the 2022–23 academic year begins, colleges and universities are experiencing financial pressures leading to reductions in staff and cuts in services. At the same time, students require even more support. They are arriving on campus with a wide disparity of academic preparation and social skills. Political tribalism, inflation, the war in Ukraine, the threat of violence, and the lingering pandemic all erode students’ mental health.

Parents and students are looking for schools that can foster the type of success that will help them feel comfortable investing in post-secondary education. While meeting their expectations, you must also comply with laws and regulations that require higher education institutions to provide adequate student support to maximize successful outcomes.

You can take specific steps now to ensure legal compliance.
