NACUA recently hosted its annual conference in California. The event commenced on June 26, 2016, at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. Over the course of four days, attendees enjoyed educational sessions led by more than 200 speakers and moderators. Discussions covered claims related to online education, mental health challenges among students, the False Claims Act, faculty misconduct, and web-based hacking. Additionally, best practices regarding policymaking and campus security were shared. For a more customized experience, the conference offered nine tracks attendees could follow to ensure courses taken directly benefited their professional needs.

As a follow up to the event, the association announced that members can access recorded sessions online at the organization’s new learning center. The sessions pertain to the Lawyers New to Higher Education Workshops. Video footage of the opening plenary is complimentary. All other sessions for those who attended are free. Members who did not register must pay a fee to access the educational material.
