NACUANEWS Volume 94

CEO’s Corner

image002

December 2016

Campuses are swirling more than the norm lately as they address reactions to the recent elections, anticipate resulting potential changes and navigate this uncertainty. NACUA members play a critical role in sharing factual information and analysis about many of these issues; helping to calm the waters when campus unrest occurs; and facilitating conversations and discussions to assist members of the college or university community. 

The NACUA Board of Directors had a conversation at its meeting in mid-November regarding how NACUA can best help its members to fulfill these responsibilities successfully. In addition to providing resources as they become available, we have organized a December 8 webinar on post-election issues with nine outstanding speakers on topics that include:

  • U.S. Presidential and Congressional transition - the process and timeline for political appointments and policy implementation;
  • Campus climate and unrest issues;
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and the legal implications of proposed “sanctuary” campuses;
  • Addressing sex-based discrimination and sexual misconduct; and
  • Other key legal issues that impact higher education (National Labor Relations Board (NLRB); Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA); Research Regulations; Web Accessibility; Endowments)
