Call For Proposals
What kinds of program proposals are needed?
Program proposals should focus on the conference theme, define or describe the stability offered to our campus environments by the efforts of student affairs professionals and that involve personal, cognitive, spiritual, and physical development of student affairs professionals and/or students in the campus community.
Are collaborative proposals accepted?
Program proposals may be submitted by an individual, or by a group/team. One coordinating presenter should be selected and submit the proposal in his/her name, with the other presenter(s) listed on the proposal. All presenters should be listed on the proposal and should have already agreed to participate/present at the time of submission.
What are the available program formats?
Sessions will be 50 minutes in length and are designed to explore issues, theories, research, or practices related to the conference theme. Proposals are sought in one of three program formats: Lecture/Paper Presentations, Panels/Symposia/Round Tables, or Workshop General Sessions.
Lectures/Paper presentations are the primary venue for presenting scholarly research and material that pose analytic questions and then develop research-based or theoretical discussions about issues of importance to the profession. Proposal presenters for lectures/paper presentations selected for the conference should plan to submit a completed paper on the topic to the Program Chair by December 15, 2016 for inclusion in a conference proceedings monograph.
A symposium or panel presentation/round table is a thematic, interactive, and structured conversation between a panel of presenters and the program participants. Panel/Symposia proposals should include the names of the panelists on the proposal, and have their agreement to participate prior to submission.
Workshop General Sessions.
Some issues are best addressed in a traditional general session format.

A Program Proposal Form in Microsoft Office Word Format has been included on the web-site. Coordinating presenters should fully complete this form, providing details of the program proposal, including, but not limited to:
What are the criteria for the selection of programs from the proposals?
Proposals will be evaluated on quality and clarity of content, the clarity of specified learning outcomes and specific relationship of the proposal to the conference theme.
How should proposals be submitted?
All program proposals should be submitted online.
When will coordinating presenters be notified if their proposal was selected?
Coordinating presenters will be notified via email when their program proposals have been received by the Committee. In addition, notification of selected proposals will be sent by December 15, 2016. Coordinating presenters are then responsible for notification of all co-presenters, and to ensure that each registers and attends the Conference.
