BERWYN, Pa., Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The NCHERM Group announces its Higher Education Risk Management Certification Institute (HERM-CI).
The Higher Education Risk Management Certification Institute (HERM-CI) is an intensive two-day immersion in The NCHERM Way. Faculty will teach you how to do what they do, and how to bring their proven techniques of holistic risk management home to your campus. Attendees will receive certification in the effective risk management practices that have made The NCHERM Group the leader in the field. With issue after issue, The NCHERM Group has had risk management structures in place well before those issues were top-of-mind for higher education. Such farsightedness isn't luck, and this two-day certification curriculum was designed specifically to prepare you for the legal environment of today, but more importantly, for the challenges of tomorrow.
HERM-CI's expert faculty is comprised of the top practitioners in the field, and the curriculum is deeper than other law and policy conferences because of its intensive institute format. HERM-CI is more than just professional development — it is designed to build professional expertise around critical competencies. Your HERM-CI certification, like other certifications The NCHERM Group offers, is a valuable credential that is sought by employers and respected in the courtroom. The NCHERM Group and its associations have certified more than 8,000 higher education professionals in the last five years.
Attending a HERM-CI is an investment that pays tangible dividends by helping to keep your campus out of the headlines, off the OCR docket, out of the courtroom and on the good sides of your President and Board of Trustees. The NCHERM Group's goal is to keep you focused on bringing excellence to your professional role without the time-consuming and costly distractions experienced by those who don't prioritize risk management in their daily administrative practice. The onslaught of litigation experienced over the last couple of years in higher education isn't an inevitability. Don't accept that it's the new normal. We can turn it around. Let The NCHERM Group show you how.

Sanctuary, Immigration and Undocumented Students
Now, more than ever, colleges need clarity on student status and the legalities around visa, travel by foreign students, returning to the US from travel abroad, and the delicate issues around sanctuary, visas, green cards, and deportation. This session will feature an in-depth discussion of the concept of sanctuary, and whether we should even call it that. The conversation will focus around the philosophical positions on sanctuary, and some of the practical legal implications, including when ICE comes to campus, working with federal marshals or refusing to assist, the FERPA implications, how to be a sanctuary campus in a sanctuary city, and what it means to be a sanctuary campus in a municipality that is not a sanctuary. Finally, we will focus on the federal funding aspects of sanctuary decision, and what campus leaders need to consider in weighing any decision to defy the federal government.
