Call for Proposals: The Future of Higher Education – Jan 8

Posted by PHENND on October 3, 2023

We are looking for individuals who plan on attending the “PHENND CONFERENCE: The Future of Higher Education,” to be held Friday, February 23, 2024, to design and lead paper presentations and workshops. This gathering will be attended by 100-120 campus staff, faculty, students and community partners active in community service, service-learning, and campus-community partnership work. While primarily targeting individuals who are part of the 25+ colleges and universities involved in the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development (PHENND), this event is also open nationally to practitioners of campus-community partnership. Over the course of one day, between 3 and 5 elective choices will be offered during each of three sessions. Therefore, we are looking for a total of roughly 10-15 workshops and/or paper presentations.

There will be five tracks at the conference based on the Paradigm Project‘s Framework:
Student Learning: How can Institutions of Higher Education ensure that “all students have learning that empowers them to chart their own lives and contribute to the common good?”
A New Social Compact: How can “institutional practices center community, democracy, and education as a public good?”
Student Thriving: How can Institutions of Higher Education ensure that “all students are seen, welcomed, challenged, and changed?”
Faculty and Staff Thriving: How can Institutions of Higher Education ensure that “all educators’ work is valued, well-supported, and aligned with holistic, engaged, equitable learning?”
Holistic Campus Community: How can we ensure that “institutional culture and decision-making are inclusive and participatory?”

LOCATION: Rutgers University-Camden
CONFERENCE DATE: Friday, February 23, 2024
