Innovation Meets Oversight: The Tug of War Between Regulation and Higher Ed Progress

Cooley special counsel Vince Sampson was a featured speaker.

Regulation and government oversight in higher education exists to protect students and the health of our institutions. Some might argue, though, that it also protects the status quo and slows innovation in a sector that so urgently needs it. Led by a group of experts, this discussion provided valuable insights around the complex relationship between regulation and innovation in higher education.

Decoding the Dear Colleague Letter – What’s a TPS?!

Cooley special counsel Kate Lee Carey was a featured speaker.

On February 15, 2023, the US Department of Education issued a Dear Colleague letter with a new definition of third-party servicer that appears to radically expand the department’s regulatory scope to encompass any service or product touching a Title IV program. The impact on companies and organizations that sell to colleges and universities, including edtech providers, could be significant. This panel featured journalists and lawyers who have been on the frontline covering and analyzing this issue and will provide guidance on what has been proposed and the range of potential outcomes.
