Bringing Theory to Practice Project Student Conference

Posted by on September 7, 2008

The Bringing Theory to Practice Project, in partnership with AAC&U and sponsored by the Charles Engelhard Foundation, would like to inform you of a Student Conference being held in Washington, DC, October 3-4, 2008.

The BTtoP Project seeks to help bridge the gap between faculty, student affairs personnel, counselors, and administrators on college and university campuses. This conference will emphasize the student role in promoting liberal education, including engaged learning, civic engagement, mental health and overall well-being. It will provide a special opportunity for students to share ideas and experiences and learn how they can promote their own agency and activism through collaborative projects on their campus.

The Conference is built to give students a voice and actively engage them in their educational experience.  There will be student presentations, panelists, as well as a Call for Proposals (CFP) to present a student-run project or program.  They will also be explaining about grant funding availability specifically for students in the last session of the Conference.

The registration deadline is Sept. 10th

More information about registration, the program, and the CFP can be viewed on our website:
