“Pipelines, Pathways, and Institutional Leadership in a Changing Climate”
Call for Proposals – Deadline January 30, 2019
Forty-eight years ago, K. Leroy Irvis, the first African American Speaker of the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives, founded the Pennsylvania Black Conference on Higher Education (PBCOHE). The purpose of PBCOHE is to examine the impact of state and federal educational policies on persons of color in Pennsylvania and to advocate for the postsecondary access and success for minority students, faculty, and staff. This year’s theme, “Pipelines, Pathways, and Institutional Leadership in a Changing Climate” is intended to for us to examine the changing landscape of higher education, current policies, and practices, while considering how they serve all of the stakeholders in higher education.
In line with the Pennsylvania Black Conference on Higher Education mission and the desire of K. Leroy Irvis to ensure that minorities have access to quality education, we invite scholars, educators, and policy makers to submit papers that examine these issues within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and throughout the nation at large. We invite you to submit your ideas, inspiration, and innovative presentations that reflect the essence of this year’s conference theme. Please submit your proposal on one of the following (or other related) topics:
- Diversity and inclusion in Higher Education
- Black and Brown Males in Higher Education
- Student Retention and Achievement
- The political climate and Higher Education
- Success for Students of Color
- Supporting Higher Education Professionals
- Funding sources for Higher Education
