Higher Education Industry Challenges

Fines for violation of the Clery Act are up to $35,000 per training violation. Fines for violation of Title IX are in the millions, and hundreds of schools have lost or settled suits for not following or training staff and faculty on Title IX. The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights has compiled a list of the higher education institutions under investigation for possible violations of federal law over the handling of sexual violence and harassment complaints; that list has more than 400 colleges and universities on it. Colleges and universities across the country have paid fines, from $165,000 to $2.4 million, for not having a comprehensive faculty and staff compliance training program. The Higher Education Compliance Alliance (HECA) was created by the National Association of College and University Attorneys to provide the higher education community with a centralized repository of information and resources for compliance with federal laws and regulations. The HECA compliance matrix lists more than 30 compliance areas, and over 200 laws, that colleges and universities must comply with, and for which they must offer training to employees.

I have known Paul professionally since 2009 and am very aware of the quality of the training content in this series as well as the design and functionality of the e-learning platform. Both our support of the online courses as the basis of our credential as well as our fiscal commitment to the development of the courses demonstrates our full support of CypherWorx.
