Upon completion of the program, certificates of attendance will be presented to the participants. Participants may also request CLE credit. WashingtonCollege of Law is an accredited provider for Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York and will seek accreditation for all other states as requested.
Stakeholders across the globe will participate in this conference to enhance the use of forensic evidence to expose torture. The conference concludes a three-year global project to strengthen the collaboration of practitioners in the use of medical expertise for strategic litigation cases and the fight against torture. Topics will include survivors’ perspectives, national, regional and international best practices, challenges and emerging developments. American University WashingtonCollege of Law (WCL) has developed numerous initiatives to help contribute to the realization of the objectives of the Convention against Torture including conferences on the prevention of torture, reparation for torture victims, and strengthening visits to places of detention, as well as special programs on the study and research of the prevention of torture including the United Nations Committee against Torture Project.
American University WashingtonCollege of Law (AUWCL) is a law school founded on real life challenges, committed to preparing future generations of lawyers for the realities of legal practice. In addition to a superb faculty, our students benefit from renowned programs in clinical legal education, international law, intellectual property, trial advocacy, commercial arbitration and environmental law, just to name a few, as well as from internships with private firms, national and international organizations, and government agencies. Our graduates excel in firms of all sizes as well as in federal government honors programs, public interest organizations, prosecutor and public defender offices, and judicial clerkships. The law school thrives on continually improving the quality of legal education provided to our students. AUWCL's low
Other networks cited partnerships with AmeriCorps volunteers or local media outlets to promote student and parent participation in college access events and targeting
students from specific racial and ethnic groups.
On the other hand, four networks reported difficulties in promoting collaboration across stakeholders by aligning priorities and resources. According to one network, “The challenges are those of any new partnership: Identifying complementary roles, aligning goals, assigning supportive tasks, and communicating effectively. We believe the new structure and meeting approach will improve our effectiveness as a network.” Another discussed that collaboration has been difficult in schools without an on-site college access coordinator. A rural network reported that several school districts are not interested in pooling resources to target specific groups of students due to distinct goals and priorities. Recruiting Native American Indian leaders to participate in college access activities was cited as an additional challenge for one network.
Soon after the study was published, the Washington Monthly published the 2012 edition of its college rankings. 4 Some UNCF-member HBCUs that had
ranked near the top of the 2011 rankings were still ranked in the upper half of the 2012 rankings, but not, in some individual cases, as highly as in 2011. Likewise, some individual UNCF-member institutions that were ranked lower in 2011 climbed to a higher position in the 2012 rankings. To determine whether it was still true that HBCUs tended to be ranked as well as, if not better than, non-HBCUs in the overall rankings, social mobility rankings, and graduation rates, UNCF’s Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute replicated its analyses of the 2011 rankings, using data from the newly released 2012 rankings. The analyses of the 2012 data continued to show HBCUs as above average in terms of overall ranking, social mobility ranking and graduation rates.
Quality assurance. Dual credit and dual enrollment credits do not always transfer when students matriculate into college, especially at selective, private, and out-of-state colleges (Borden, Taylor, Park & Seiler, 2013). Decisions not to allow dual credit or dual enrollment credit to transfer are linked to the variability in course content quality and academic rigor. To mitigate this, states have used accreditation policies, such as encouraging or requiring a national accreditor, the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) (Borden, Taylor, Park, & Seiler, 2013). NACEP accreditation is designed to ensure quality standards for dual credit and dual enrollment courses. In addition, states have encouraged or required faculty professional development. College instructors often need help understanding how to connect with high school students and high school instructors often need help adapting their pedagogy to create realistic college-level expectations and experiences (Edwards, Hughes, & Weisberg, 2011). Ideally, the academic rigor should be “challenging yet manageable” so that students can believe that “college is for them, not beyond them” (Edwards, Hughes, & Weisberg, 2011, p.18). Finally, 37 of 47 states in a national survey reported that they require instructors of dual credit and dual enrollment courses to meet certain standards. Most often, these states require the criteria for selecting a qualified instructor for a dual credit or dual enrollment course to be the same as the criteria that the credit-granting institution uses to hire its own faculty (Borden, Taylor, Park & Seiler, 2013).

However, the two most widely cited reasons for withdrawal are circumstances associated with access to particular academic disciplines and relocation for relatives or friends. In regards to the former, the community college research site offers over 50 areas of study that cover many of the more popular degrees. Yet, there are still niche subjects that a small group of international students left to pursue including automotive mechanics and airplane maintenance. Subsequently, nursing is a competitive degree at the community college research site that has exceptionally limited enrollment, which explains why some international students indicated that they were leaving for a nursing program elsewhere. Then, there were transfer out requests from international student that were moving to live nearby someone they are close to, especially another family member. Of the 11 non-persisters that gave this reason, their destinations were New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, London, and Paris with two to other cities in Washington State. All of these locations are known for having larger
