Connect 2019 Call for Proposals

The Call for Proposals has closed. Presenters will be notified by May 1st.

Call for Proposals

You can help make Connect 2019 shine! Our annual student engagement conference succeeds when Member Campuses like yours take the stage to share powerful ideas that help benefit their intellectual peers. These sessions are run by campuses near and far as they dive into their insights about maximizing Campus Labs solutions and improving the student experience. We hope you’ll join in and share your innovation.

Our call for proposals will prompt you to tell us about your proposed session, including learning outcomes and an outline. Here’s an example of what we are looking for.

In addition to giving us great campus connections, several workshops were directly related to initiatives we want to pursue and helped provide examples of what's working at other campuses.”

Our attendees come from all corners of student affairs (and beyond) and are open to a range of topics, but just to get your brain started, here are some ideas:

  • Event management
  • Leveraging data to inform student engagement strategies/initiatives

  • Student organization financial management and budgeting practices
  • Student organization registration
  • Technical integrations with campus platforms

Submission Guidelines

Connect 2019 will feature a variety of session formats. Please be sure to incorporate time for questions and answers at the end. We hope to offer opportunities for member campuses to engage with each other and generate new ideas to take back to campus, so as part of the proposal process we ask you to highlight what you want all attendees to learn from your presentation and how you will create an opportunity for the audience to interact with you and the content.

  • Will this session be of high value to attendees?
  • Does this proposal address a “hot topic” at institutions today?
  • Does this presentation offer an opportunity for attendees to interact with the presenter and/or the content?
  • Does this presentation incorporate the use or goals of your student engagement platform?
