NASFAA Webinar: Recognizing and Eliminating Bias in Aid Office Policies and Procedures
November 17, 2021, 2:00 PM ET | 90 Minutes
Price: Free for Value Plus and Webinar Package; $120.00 for other members; $240.00 for Non-members

Did you know that your learned stereotypes automatically form unconscious bias? Of course, most of the time there are no intentional outcomes. While assisting students in achieving their education goals, financial aid administrators navigate through a sea of federal and state laws, regulations, and regulatory guidance, and we do so as fairly and equitably as we can. Kochie Vaughan and a distinguished panel of your colleagues will discuss the importance of initiating and advancing the conversation of unconscious bias on your campus. The panel will discuss the mission of recognizing and eliminating bias in financial aid policies and procedures.

On-Demand Webinars

On-Demand events are usually available for a year after recording date, regardless of purchase date. NASFAA reserves the right to remove access to an On-Demand webinar sooner for content considerations. If you registered for the live webinar, you do not need to also register for the On-Demand item; you'll be notified when it is available for viewing.
