Colleges and secondary schools that recruit and enroll international students face a host of risks particular to these students, and often unknown to the institution. Historically, international students represent an increasingly important source of revenue for educational institutions, and it is predicted these trends will continue indefinitely. Attracting, maintaining, and satisfying a group of students with unique needs can be challenging without the proper protocols in place.

Please join attorney Kathleen E. Dion as she helps you evaluate the unique issues, from student wellness, to disciplinary and compliance issues, all in a manner designed to provide you with real protocols and action items to mitigate potential problems and risks.
