I echo the advice given, though I don't know US law. Here in the UK the NPA (Newspapaer Publishers Association) demanded licence payments from Universities for imagined multiple copying. Although advice from those overseeing the copiers was that there was no evidence that this was going on & that in any case individuals were responsible for their own adherence to copyright laws, the institutions were scared of possible action and signed and paid up for licences to permit them to do what they might never do and what might have been legal under educational fair dealing any way.
Certainly challenge them to come up with concrete examples.
