Educational Session Proposal Submission Information

Submit your educational program proposals to engage, inspire, inform, and create dialogue for conference participants at the 2010 annual conference in New York City. The 2010 Conference Program Team is excited to invite you to join us for this conference where we will “Explore the Core: New Ideas, New Solutions, New York.”

As a knowledge based organization, we seek strong educational sessions that reflect the Education Council areas and the Communities of Practice with relevance for new professionals, mid-level managers, senior managers, and graduate and undergraduate students. In addition, we seek to incorporate the 11 core competencies that have been identified for successful practice in the college union and student activities profession by the Association. These skill sets are the result of extensive research and professional reflection. They embody the knowledge and experiences necessary for professional proficiency and best practices in the college union and student activities field. It is our goal that the core competencies become the foundation of training programs and graduate education in student affairs and higher education administration.

Specific topics of interest for the 2010 conference include:

  • Student organization advising
  • Student employee training and leadership development programs
  • Sustainable programs and practices for the 21st century
  • Best business practices
  • Mentoring programs and strategies
  • Marketing
  • Effective use of technology to support programs, services and operations
  • Cultivating the diversity of our profession
  • Meeting the dynamic needs of students
  • Growing the profession of college unions and student activities

One of the best ways you can help build community within ACUI is by sharing your knowledge. Share your experiences and expertise with your colleagues.

Please review the 2010 educational session presenter policies prior to submission. The deadline to submit proposals is June 19, 2009.
