Bullying, hazing, social media and other key issues of higher education will be discussed at this year’s 17th Annual Texas Higher Education Law Conference. Featuring nationally renowned speakers, the two-day event is considered the premier higher education law conference in Texas.
The conference will be March 25-26 in the Gateway Center and is sponsored by the Center for Higher Education and the College of Education, among others.
The conference is aimed toward public and private college and university professionals, as well as attorneys who advise them. Speakers focus on areas such as student legal issues, First Amendment rights, technology dangers, FERPA and free speech.
“All of us in higher education work in dynamic and challenging legal environments, in which new issues are always coming to the fore, and in which relevant rules and laws are always in development,” said Marc Cutright, right, associate professor of higher education and director of the Center for Higher Education. “Our aim is to recognize and anticipate these issues, and to help answer the basic question, ‘What should I do?’”
In addition to the Bullying on Campus session presented by Lynn Rossi Scott of Brackett and Ellis, P.C., other topics include:
