All complete proposals will be considered by the committee and we are looking for a diverse group of presentation topics that support different Competency areas to provide our attendees with plenty of options for educational sessions in support of the Inspiring Innovation theme during the conference.

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

Please submit demographic information for the coordinating presenter, and complete all of the fields below.
