What's New with SARA?

The national initiative, the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) will create interstate reciprocity in the regulation of postsecondary distance education. The four regional higher education compacts - the Midwestern Higher Education Compact, New England Board of Higher Education, Southern Regional Education Board, and Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, will collaborate to make distance education courses more accessible to students across state lines, as well as making it easier for states to regulate and institutions to participate in interstate distance education.

Join Marshall Hill, executive director of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA); Rhonda Epper, director of WICHE SARA; and Russell Poulin, deputy director for research and analysis at WCET for a webcast update on SARA.

The webcast will cover:

  • Key facts about SARA.
  • How your state and institution can participate.
  • The projected timeline for implementation.

There will be ample time for your questions.

Join us for this important discussion. The WCET webcast, "What's New with SARA?" was originally aired on January 23. This webcast runs for 75 minutes.
