Call For Programs 

We invite you to attend Crossing Paths, the ACUI Region VIII Conference at University Crossing on the campus of University of Massachusetts Lowell. Please save the date of Nov. 18–20, 2016! 

In order to offer the best educational opportunities possible, we need your help! We invite you to submit proposals for educational sessions to be held at the conference. There is a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the region that we want to see on display at this year’s program.

Here are a few helpful tips to consider when submitting your session proposal:

  • Consider a focus on the priority competencies identified by the Association’s education plan:
    • Human Resource Development
    • Intercultural Proficiency
    • Fiscal Management
  • Consider proposing a session related to one of the areas of focus developed by the Region VIII Conference Education Team:
    • Inclusivity/Social Justice
    • Partnering with Academic Affairs
    • The Importance of the “Third Place”
    • Student Union/Student Affairs Lessons from Outside the Field
  • Design your session using this template provided by the annual conference education team.
  • Connect with other colleagues in the region for a group submission.
  • Ask questions!

Sessions can be submitted online after logging in to your ACUI account. The deadline for submitting proposals has been extended until Friday, July 31.

If you have any questions, please contact the education programs coordinator Gavin Telfer or conference chair Tim St. John
