  • General Overview of Contracts
  • Intellectual Property
  • Employment
  • Risk Management
  • Ethics
  • Computer Use and Social Media
  • Litigation
  • Privacy Issues -- relating to computer use and open records requests

There will be presentations by various attorneys and staff from the Office of Legal Counsel, with opportunities to ask questions and arrange follow up visits to individual departments for training and information tailored to the needs of those departments.

The Business of Fraud

Fraud is not anticipated, potentially eroding cost savings. Cost savings, revenue enhancements and earning augmentations are common denominators for successful businesses. Operational efficiencies and resource allocations are a few of the elements associated with cost savings. However, fraud can potentially reduce any cost savings, revenues or earnings. Fraud is not accidental or inadvertent, but rather a deliberate act committed for personal gain. According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) 2012 annual report, 5% of an organizationís annual revenue is lost to fraudsters. This seminar will examine various types of occupational fraud in the higher education environment, fraud prevention techniques and the role of Information Systems.

Note: This course has been updated and revised. If you have previously taken The Business of Fraud, we ask that you register to attend as there is addtional information you need to know!
