What would be an appropriate response plan for Roger Williams University who is out of compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008?
Prompt: You will write a response plan to present to the college president, recommending guidance to the institution on how to respond to the regulatory change that you have chosen, identifying what resources the institution will need in order to respond to your recommendations. You will identify, research, and offer program recommendations with regard to the underrepresented need that corresponds to the chosen regulatory change. Your response should also address both traditional and non-traditional students and be sufficient in order to gain and maintain compliance. As part of your plan, you will make a recommendation on how to communicate this to internal stakeholders. You will also predict the impact that this implementation will have on the higher education institution and its students. You should incorporate examples from this course and your online research in your answers.
