I will be presenting on two topics at the Regions PCCS Conference in Chicago on May 18. My first presentation will be “The Americans with Disabilities Act & Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act: Obligations for Title IV Schools.” This is largely a primer on ADA and Section 504 concerns, as enforced by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
My second presentation, which has become fairly popular as of late, “Converting to a Non-Profit” addresses the issues associated with converting a for-profit school to a non-profit school. I may do a post on this in the future addressing these issues. It’s a fairly interesting transaction that, despite recent scrutiny, many for-profit institutions are considering right now.
Also, my Hogan Marren colleague Pat Edelson will be giving her well regarded presentation “What’s New in Program Reviews: What to Expect, How to Respond” also on May 18th at the PCCS conference. For those of you who don’t know, Pat is a Title IV expert, having served as a institutional program specialist for over 20 years in the New York Region of the Office for Federal Student Aid, and having served for ten years as a campus director in a publicly traded proprietary school chain before that. There is simply no one better at understanding FSA, program reviews, and the intricacies of Title IV better than Pat.
