USDE Negotiated Rulemaking: Insights for Accreditation and Assessment Professionals

Thursday, April 18, 2019 from 2:00pm to 3:00pm CDT

This spring the Department of Education is undertaking the negotiated rulemaking process to update and revise existing regulations on more than a dozen topics, including accreditation, innovative learning models, written arrangements and more. Wondering what this process is, how it affects you and how to stay involved in the rulemaking process? Join Jillian Klein - a negotiator in this year's neg reg process - as she talks through everything you need to know about this amazing and terrible process the Department of Education uses to make new rules.

Presenter: Jillian Klein is Vice President of Government and Regulatory Affairs for Strategic Education, Inc. where she works with internal and external partners on higher education policy, postsecondary innovation and federal financial aid compliance on behalf of Capella University and Strayer University. She was part of the team that created Capella University’s direct assessment program offerings (FlexPath), including the first bachelor’s and master’s level direct assessment programs approved to offer federal financial aid by the Department of Education. Jillian received a B.A. in business administration from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and a M.A. in systematic theology from Luther Seminary. She is an alumna of the Policy Fellows program at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota, and in 2019 participated as a non-federal negotiator in the Department of Education’s negotiated rulemaking on both the Accreditation & Innovation Committee and Distance Learning Subcommittee. Jillian lives in Minnesota with her husband and two young girls.
