Elevate 2019 Call for Proposals

Call for Proposals Overview

Member Campus success stories are at the heart of why we do what we do! And who else is better to share these accomplishments than Member Campuses, firsthand! We’re excited to announce that Elevate 2019 will feature sessions led by campus professionals spanning the globe. These sessions offer an additional opportunity for the exchange of ideas, innovations, and best practices. Share the great work you do every day to advance institutional effectiveness, teaching and learning, and co-curricular assessment on campus and engage both faculty and students using your Campus Labs solutions.

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.
