You asked and we listened! In this Baker Tilly and ACUA webinar, a panel of higher education specialists will discuss several hot topics in higher education auditing based on feedback from ACUA members. This webinar will include a “potpourri” of key developments in higher education risk and compliance, including Title IX regulations, impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on campus activities and cybersecurity and the higher education components of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

We will start out with an update on newly finalized Title IX requirements, helping attendees understand what has changed and how this may affect their processes (and audits). Next, we will discuss monitoring of campus activities, including how COVID-19 metrics can inform decision-making. We will then discuss assessment of workstation security controls and how COVID-19 has changed the landscape given the pervasive remote work and learning environment. Lastly, we will provide insights on the evolving guidance for Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) compliance.

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Identify requirements in the final Title IX regulations and how these may impact your audits

2. Discuss monitoring activities institutions can implement to assess campus safety and inform decision-making in the rapidly changing COVID-19 environment, as well as how internal audit can help

3. Assess workstation security controls in a remote environment

4. Review developments regarding the use of CARES Act funding by higher education institutions and where internal audit can provide assurance
