Call for Proposals: AAC&U 2020 Annual Meeting, Deadline July 22

Posted on June 18, 2019

The Call for Proposals is now open for AAC&U’s 2020 Annual Meeting, which will be held January 22–25, 2020, in Washington, DC. The deadline for proposals is Monday, July 22.

Several broadly negative fiscal trends now affecting higher education are exacerbating the affordability challenge and threatening the financial sustainability of colleges and universities. In response, on campuses across the country, administrators, faculty, staff, and students are rising to meet these challenges—redoubling their commitment to equity and inclusion, refusing to accept the notion that high quality must come at a high cost.

Shaping the Future of Higher Education: An Invitation to Lead” will showcase equitable, innovative, and cost-effective models for providing today’s students with a strong, relevant, and inclusive liberal education. Meeting participants are invited to share their work on the development and implementation of the high-impact educational practices, inclusive pedagogies, authentic forms of assessment, and pathways to student success that are transforming student learning at two- and four-year institutions, across disciplines and majors, and across institutional types—and shaping the future of higher education.

AAC&U invites proposals of innovative, interactive, substantive sessions that will raise provocative questions, engage participants with evidence of “what works,” and create and encourage dialogue—before, during, and after the conference.
