Improving University Governance: How to Keep Your Institution Off the 5 O’clock News

This month’s webinar features Lauren Bloom, JD, LLM, a 30-year governance expert and graduate of Yale University, Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law, and Georgetown University Law Center who has served as general counsel for multiple organizations.

Lauren examines the critical function and duties of university boards of trustees, and how they are changing as a result of increased scrutiny by accreditors, government and the news media, e.g., Penn State being fined $2.4 million by the Education Department for violations of the Cleary Act, IT systems hacked at Rutgers and University of Central Florida, and other recent events publicized by social media “reporters” (students).

You will learn:

  • How and why university governance models are changing
  • The importance of proactive governance models
  • The implications of board governance for institutional stakeholders
