Price: $150.00 for members

Colleges and universities are focused in their pursuit of creating inclusive learning environments where all students, including those from underrepresented groups, can benefit. In order to do so, institutional leaders must walk a fine line of using admissions and financial aid practices to expand opportunity while also taking into account a range of legal, policy-related, political, and practical considerations. This session will address major federal nondiscrimination laws that govern college admission and the awarding of financial aid and scholarships when factors like race, ethnicity, and gender are considered. Managing partner and co-founder of EducationCounsel LLC Art Coleman will provide session attendees with practical strategies, actionable steps, and examples that align with current federal laws.
