Moderator: Jenna Radford, Wake Forest University
Ms. Spreitzer represents ACE and its members on matters related to research policy and funding, federal policy, international students, immigration, and legislative issues.
Why this matters: The Commission establishes standards for postsecondary educational operations, authorizes operations, approves programs, issues or denies licenses to, and oversees all private post-secondary educational institutions in the District of Columbia. Thus all programs should be aware of how this regulatory authority affects their operations, including whether they require a license to operate legally in the city.
This program will involve a discussion of the work of the commission and proposed changes that the WPC might like to see in order to streamline the licensure process and make it less cumbersome. Please come or send a representative from your office.
For background, we ask you to take a look at the following:
RSVP emails will be sent out in early March. To receive one, please be sure you are registered at our website.
Thank you to Jenna Radford and Jennifer Richwine of Wake Forest for organizing this event.
