Complying with the Michigan Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) can be a daunting challenge for public colleges and universities. Demands from the public and media for increased transparency have caused the volume of FOIA requests and appeals to skyrocket at many institutions. Schools also face growing litigation and legislative scrutiny over their responses and fees charged.

  • The nuts and bolts of compliance
  • Recent court decisions
  • Emerging trends
