Call for Presenters
Submissions due October 4, 2013

This conference is open to members of college campuses and community organizations. The conference is designed to unite community partners, students, faculty and staff in order to share different perspectives of service-learning and civic engagement. We anticipate a wide array of presentations that focus on service-learning and civic engagement examples, successes, and challenges.  For this reason, SALSA invites you to submit a presentation proposal for its annual workshop.

We are looking for presentations that explore the different facets of service-learning and civic engagement. Extra consideration will be given to workshops that engage the audience and discuss service-learning through a unique lens.

Workshops or presentations are 50 minutes.  Presenters will offer solutions about how their work, research, program initiatives, courses, and partnerships move us toward a more engaged society/institution.  Presentations should be designed to analyze and generate conversation addressing various dimensions of service and engagement.

Presenters will be chosen on an ongoing basis in order to post the program on our website.  The final deadline for submission is October 4, 2013.  The conference planning committee, made up of SALSA members, will review and select proposals based on applicability, creativity, and clarity.  Accepted presenters will be notified by October 10, 2013.

On behalf of the Conference Committee, we encourage you to submit a proposal ( that will inspire workshop attendees and help them to better understand service-learning and civic engagement.

The registration fee is $5.00 for students and $15.00 for all other registrants.
