About The Event

Host: Wake Forest   University Washington Center

1 Dupont Circle   Suite 420

Time: 2 p.m.   check-in, finish about 4:30 p.m.

Topic: The Higher Education Licensure   Commission (HELC) of the District of Columbia 

1) Background on   HELC - what it does and what is required

2) Discussion of   experiences with HELC - new applications and renewal process

3) Possible actions   and advocacy in engaging with DC city government and HELC

Main Speaker and   others tba: Sarah   Spreitzer, Director of Government Relations at ACE. 

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.
