In a significant decision that overrules existing precedent, the National Labor Relations Board has ruled that student assistants employed by private colleges and universities at both the graduate and undergraduate levels are "employees" ” for the purposes of union organizing and collective bargaining. This is a sweeping change with wide-ranging implications for these institutions. Join an interactive discussion featuring experienced higher education and labor attorneys who submitted an amicus brief in this matter to get a better understanding of the key issues, including:

  • What happened in the Columbia University case? 
  • What does the NLRB ruling mean for higher education?
  • What should private colleges and universities do now?
