|February 25, 2-3pm ET||Public Policy Basics: Breaking down the public policy process for student affairs professionals||As a follow-up to November 2020’s Public Policy Division blog post, this session will build on the dialogue of breaking down the language and process of how law and policy is made in the United States. We’ll dive into commonly used (but still confusing) terminology, the lawmaking processes at the federal and state levels, and use the Higher Education Reauthorization Act as a case study for understanding rulemaking processes.||Jill L. Creighton, D.P.A.; Beth Devonshire, JD; Katy Launius, M.Ed.|
