Ireland's Taoiseach Enda Kenny Greets the Forum

The Taoiseach commented that he was sure that attendees would enjoy Dublin as the host city for the conference.

Forum/NACUA Clery Workshop: June 13

The Forum is engaged in an ongoing partnership with NACUA (National Association of College and University Attorneys) to provide Forum members with up-to-date information on Clery Act implications for our field. We want to alert you to the fact that the Department of Education continues to amend education abroad reporting requirements.
The most comprehensive resource to assist institutions and organizations to understand these new requirements is the full-day workshop addressing recent changes to the Clery Handbook. Implications of the New Clery Handbook - What Does it Mean for Education Abroad? will take place on Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 9:00am to 4:00pm at the George Washington University in Washington, DC.
More details regarding this workshop and how to register may be found here:
