Daniel Golden of Bloomberg News to Speak at
CHEA 2010 Summer Workshop

Daniel Golden, editor at large for Bloomberg News, will speak at the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) 2010 Summer Workshop and Fifth National Accreditation Forum, to be held June 17-18 at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Golden will speak from 1:00-2:30 p.m. on Friday, June 18, addressing for-profit education. He has written extensively about for-profit education and other issues related to higher education.

“We are delighted that Dan has agreed to be a speaker at our Summer Workshop,” said CHEA President Judith Eaton. “His knowledge of higher education and his recent focus on for-profit education will make his remarks both timely and provocative.”

Golden has been with Bloomberg News since 2009. Previously, he served as senior editor at Portfolio magazine and was Deputy Bureau Chief at the Boston bureau of the Wall Street Journal, where he received a Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting on higher education.

CHEA’s 2010 Summer Workshop will feature top speakers addressing current challenges, opportunities and future directions for accreditation. The annual workshop draws participants from colleges and universities, accrediting organizations, higher education associations, government and the public. Speakers at the workshop will discuss topics including accountability, transparency, the federal government and accreditation, the CHEA Initiative and more.

A Preliminary Program for the CHEA 2010 Summer Workshop and Fifth National Accreditation Forum, including a registration form and hotel reservation information, is available on CHEA’s Website.
