Training Overview

Get certified and handle legal issues at your institution. Learn today’s interpretations of four significant education laws.

College and university leaders must have a firm grasp of the laws that shape nationwide education policy. Title IX, the Americans with Disabilities Act, affirmative action, and the First Amendment all affect students, staff, and faculty. Although these laws have long-established foundations, their interpretations and the regulations they spawn often shift, requiring you to update your understanding.

In its first two months, the Biden Administration has signaled dozens of ways that public policy will be dramatically different. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona will be under extreme pressure to make major reforms in higher education policy.

The Legal Issues 101 Certification program for higher education will enable you to:

  • Explore the fundamental laws that govern education in the United States
  • Update your knowledge to reflect the latest regulations and case law
  • Protect your institution from potential legal liability
  • Prove your expertise to colleagues, students, and regulators
