October 23, 2015

@ Wayne State College, Wayne, NE, 68787

Call for Proposals

This is a Call for Proposals to present or offer workshops relevant to the theme of the conference “A Shared Future: Opportunities & Promising Practices.” This theme ties in well with the Association of American Colleges and Universities focus on developing equity minded practitioners who are willing to engage in the necessary and sometimes difficult conversations and decision-making that can lead to transformational change for student learning and achievement. We are hoping that this conference will provide a forum to share experiences and practices that offer promise. We encourage you to share this information with your students, student organizations, faculty and staff. Please complete the form below and submit your proposal. The deadline for submission is September 30, 2015.


I:      Posters: There will be a one hour session for poster presentations and discussion. Posters will also be on display throughout the conference. Electronic or regular poster on Tri-Fold are welcome.

II:     Presentations: Each presentation will last 30 minutes followed by a period for questions. PowerPoint presentations are welcomed.

III:    Workshops: Each workshop will be 90 minutes long with Question and Answer held on concurrent sessions during the conference. Please think about promising practices and/or actions that enhance equity, diversity and inclusion. Presentations should be interactive and provide an opportunity for participants to learn concepts, strategies, or promising practices that have been tried in your setting.


IV:   Keynote: One hour targeted interactive session, with personal practical experiences and actions that are relevant to the college population (students, faculty, staff and college community).
