UNT 2019 Texas Higher Education Law Conference set for March 25-26

The Texas Higher Education Law Conference at the University of North Texas will be March 25-26 and is open to college and university faculty and staff. Members of the Texas State Bar and the general public are also welcome.

The conference will be at UNT’s Gateway Center, 801 North Texas Blvd. in Denton.

“The 2019 Conference will continue to include presentations on topics regarded as vital for student affairs professionals,” said Cliff Harbour, College of Education professor and director of the UNT Higher Education Development Initiative. “(But) we will include new topics and new presenters to ensure that we are also addressing emerging needs.”

As the premier conference on higher education law in Texas, the UNT conference provides college and university professionals in the public and private sector and the attorneys who advise them the most current information on important developments. Student conduct issues, First Amendment issues, technology challenges, and matters arising under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act are among the areas discussed by national experts in the field.

This is the 23rd year for the conference, which is sponsored by the UNT Higher Education Development Initiative, the Higher Education Program and the College of Education.
