This one-day seminar will be held prior to the URMIA 48th Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida.

As the number of students abroad increases, risk and education abroad professionals must ensure that their compliance protocols are appropriate for this overseas environment. Through a framework of case studies, participants will discuss incidents and investigations stemming from obligations under the U.S. law and regulations, such as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery), Title IX, and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe the key regulatory issues of mutual interest to education abroad and risk managers.
  • Determine institutional liability and mitigate institutional risk.
  • Discuss reporting and response to risk areas.
  • Practical application of regulatory compliance to case scenarios.

Designed for risk managers, education abroad managers, compliance officers, Title IX coordinators, and other stakeholders who are responsible for ensuring that programs offered abroad are compliant with U.S. laws and regulations and who wish to engage with each other and gain insights into the myriad opportunities for collaboration, mutual benefit, and shared success. Teams from the same institution with an identified relationship are encouraged, but not required, to attend.

Facilitators and Speakers

  • Nancy Hamil, Senior Counsel, Office of General Counsel, University of California
  • Cheryl Lloyd, Associate Vice-President & Chief Risk Officer, University of California
  • Katie Roller, Associate Director of International Programs, California State University Chancellors' Office

"I was really impressed with this workshop and found all the presenters did an excellent job, each offering their own expertise and personalities while really considering the roles of everyone involved in the process. It was so helpful in guiding us in the right direction, knowing that a good plan is possible, and everyone is learning and working to get a good handle on this issue."
