Noon Seminar: Legal Issues in Advising

Event Date: 
March 12, 2019
12:00–1:00 p.m.
118 ASI Building

This is the rescheduled seminar from January 22.

Shepherding students from initial enrollment to graduation, an academic advisor plays a critical role in a student’s academic progression and success at Penn State.  While not inherently risky, academic advising is not immune from legal challenge and academic advisors should be familiar with the applicable laws, University policies, and best practices that may mitigate institutional and individual liability.  Join us for a conversation with University counsel about some of the issues an advisor may encounter while handling personal information and advising students on degree requirements and course selection.  

Presenters: Zahraa Zalzala, Assistant General Counsel, Penn State
