Student Performance, the Law and the ADA: What Higher Education Faculty and Administrators Need to Know

Educators are responsible for evaluating students' performance in classroom, clinical and professional settings.  As threats of lawsuits are on the rise, academic and clinical faculty often fear giving honest feedback and grades that reflect true performance.  Through the use of actual court cases, this program is designed to enhance faculty and administrators' understanding of how the courts view such decisions in classroom, clinical and professional fieldwork experience.

Invited Guest Speaker: Steve Milam
For over 30 years Steve Miliam served as an Assistant Attorney General for several Washington State public institutions of higher education, including the University of Washington Health Science and Medical Centers. Milam also has numerous publications on the evaluation of student clinical performance and academic dismissal.
