For the next few days I am up at the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NAPSA) Region II Conference in Buffalo where I am giving a presentation called Administrators at Risk: A FIRE Seminar on Common Legal and Policy Misunderstandings. This presentation is an expansion of the presentation David and I gave at the Association of Student Judicial Affairs conference in February, which tackled everything from the rights and obligations of private colleges, the reasonability of free speech gazebos, and freedom of association. Our handout has proved a valuable resource for administrators, so if you are interested please check it out!
