Natasha Baker will be speaking at the 2016 Institute for Chief Academic Officers.
Sessions will include:
Title IX: Compliance and Best Practices
Title IX concerns of colleges and universities have expanded from equal opportunities for male and female students in intercollegiate athletics to equal educational experiences, including freedom from sexual harassment for both men and women. Which Title IX educational initiatives have worked? Which sexual harassment avoidance trainings have proven effective? What kinds of investigations meet compliance requirements? The session will include a Title IX update on handling sexual assault cases, gender equity in programming, and transgender issues on campus.
Employment Law Update
An experienced higher education attorney will offer updates on overtime pay for some faculty and staff members under the new Fair Labor Standards Act rules and the movement to unionize contingent and full-time faculty members. Issues that remain important to contingent faculty members—compensation; benefits; evaluation; institutional support for teaching, scholarship, and research; and participation in institutional governance—pose challenges for colleges, unionized or not. How can recruitment, appointment, and orientation of contingent faculty members be improved both to help the faculty members and to protect the interests of the institution?
