Call for Programs is Open!

Kate Roessler, NASPA IV-W Regional Conference Co-Marketing Coordinator

June 28, 2017

The NASPA Region IV-W Conference Committee invites you to join us in Lincoln, NE, November 2017, CULTIVATING A NEW CROP, to learn, to network, and be inspired.

Are you impacting students in a meaningful way? Is there a particular framework or theory you use to guide your practice from which others could benefit? Have you conducted original research that you want to share with the field? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you should consider submitting a program proposal!

Proposals will be evaluated based on content; relevance to the conference theme, and the Professional Competency Areas for Student Affairs Practitioners; evidence of clearly stated outcomes and objectives; timely topical/content areas; contribution to the knowledge and practice of student affairs; and adherence to program submission guidelines.

Programs should fit into one of the following categories:

  • General Interest Sessions - Sessions are directly related to the Professional Competency Areas for Student Affairs Practitioners or provide an opportunity to showcase programs, strategies, or interventions that have been successful on a particular campus.
  • Research Sessions - Sessions that include the presentation of one or more research papers, followed by a facilitated discussion of themes and/or findings. Presenters will be contacted to submit an Initial Research Proposal that is 15-20 pages (double-spaced) with references.
  • Round Table Sessions - Sessions that allow for in-depth discussion related to current events, developing trends, association business, or functional areas.
  • SA Talks - Similar to a "TED" Talk, these are 15 minute sessions where a presenter speaks on a topic of interest to Student Affairs professionals with a focus on inspiring and encouraging change. 

Note: All sessions above will be 50 minutes in length with the exception of "SA Talks" which allow presenters to speak for 15 minutes on the topic of their choice.

Submit a program proposal today! The deadline is Saturday, July 15, 2017.
