Overview | Agenda | Travel & Hotel | Faculty & Participants

NWACC offers this workshop as an enjoyable and educational means of informing information technology managers and aspiring managers about legal and policy issues that affect the work we all do. Tracy Mitrano, Director of IT Policy and University Computer Policy and Law Program at Cornell University, will facilitate the workshop.

The Opening Dinner will provide introductions and open the conversation about legal and policy challenges in our workplace. Two lecture sessions on Day Two with opportunities for questions and discussions will set the framework. Each lecture session will be followed by participatory role play sessions to build on that content. Day Three kicks off with a leadership and teambuilding exercise incorporating the themes and issues of the workshop. It will include six NWACC CIOs and be followed by a debrief and discussion session to round out the workshop experience.

Participants should leave with a better understanding of legal and policy issues that directly impact the higher education IT environment and, most importantly, learn how to deal with those issues.


Registration is limited to 50 participants; one spot is reserved for each NWACC member institution, and additional spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. NWACC will subsidize lodging for all attendees and travel expenses for one participant from each member institution. Participants filling available slots beyond the one allocated to their institution will be responsible for their travel expenses.

Registration is closed.
