The Report of the Second National Conference on Consumer Protection in Postsecondary Education. Report No. 64.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
The second National Conference on Consumer Protection in Postsecondary Education was a series of seminars on specific issues. The topics under discussion were (1) protecting the student financial interest; (2) student information needs and systems; (3) postsecondary education institutional responses; (4) regulations and safeguards; and (5) full institutional disclosure. Those taking part in the seminars included persons from consumer groups, federal and state officials with responsibility for consumer protection in postsecondary education, public, private, and proprietary, and others. The seminars resulted in some specific recommendations, the most significant of which was that leadership be exercised in each state by a state postsecondary education agency with responsibility for consumer protection in convening a meeting of all state level agencies and groups with consumer responsibility.
