Conference Themes and Suggested Topics

Global Mobility

Since the late 80s, when student exchange programs started to scale, internationalization shifted from niche initiatives to comprehensive strategies. In the European Higher Education Area, for example, the target is to have 20% of graduates have a mobility experience by the end of their studies by the year 2020. Globally, with its flow of knowledge, people, technology and more, globalization highlights how institutions need to rethink their internationalization initiatives and strategies to ensure access is more inclusive, quality and support are preserved, and innovation is encouraged at all levels. How can student affairs professionals navigate the internationalization wave?

The conference planning committee invites you to submit conference program proposals that will:

  • Define evidence-based practices regarding “internationalization-at-home” initiatives that prepare all students to live and work across differences and in an interconnected world.

  • Identify best practices for supporting international and inbound students to successfully navigate the local community.

  • Establish a network of colleagues with whom to create short-term mobility opportunities or exchanges for students.

  • Explore the advantages of intercultural experiences for students, institutions, and beyond.

Employability and Career Services

Employability studies around the world demonstrate that graduates are not leaving the university environment with the many of the skills valued by employers. Teamwork, leadership skills, resilience, and dealing with conflict are some of the most sought after skills by most employers.

  • Demonstrate how effective programs can tighten the graduate skills gap in order to improve international mobility and employability.
Residential Life and Student Engagement

What are some promising practices in building a residential curriculum to ensure meaningful learning that goes beyond attendance? How to build a culture of assessment in residential life? These questions are meant to guide the discussions of news trends and challenges in student learning and engagement in residential settings.
