Diversity, Equity, and Student Success Network Conference
Proposals Due: Thursday, September 13, 2018

The Association of American Colleges and Universities is pleased to announce the call for proposals for
“Engaged Inclusivity: Perceptions, Realities, and Aspirations.” The deadline for proposals is Thursday, September 13, 2018.

AAC&U’s Diversity, Equity, and Student Success Conference: “Engaged Inclusivity: Perceptions, Realities, and Aspirations” will examine what it means to work toward a campus environment where inclusivity thrives through constant reflection, analysis, and accountability. Engaged inclusivity transforms the dialogue on inclusion from general acceptance and tolerance of difference to active institutional transformation, based on the belief that the richness of our culture is because of our diversity and a recognition of our common humanity. The conference will provide a forum for educators, students, and community stakeholders to raise critical questions about institutional and external practices, policies, and structures that hinder full inclusion and to identify strategies for improving the educational environment for all participants.

AAC&U strongly encourages proposals that (1) balance conceptual and theoretical frameworks with concrete, pragmatic examples; (2) highlight the how-to pieces of a practice, strategy, or model; (3) facilitate reflection and engagement that helps translate vision into practice; (4) feature mature evidence-based programs; and (5) foster discovery and problem solving through idea sharing and community building. Proposals should address how the work can be adapted in a wide range of institutional types, including community colleges and minority-serving institutions.

Please review the conference overview and call for proposals for detailed information and instructions. We look forward to reviewing your proposals and seeing you in Pittsburgh in March.
