A quick guide to what we look for in proposals!
Relevance, Replicability, and “Freshness”
We want you to submit proposals that will allow you to show others how to do what you did, so it might benefit their campus. We also want you to offer your perspective and insights on relevant topics such as: innovative uses of data, DEI, scaling career services, partnerships with admissions, academic integrations, and more.
Clear Learning Outcomes
What do you want your audience to gain from your presentation? Be specific about what you want your presentation to “produce” and how you will make this happen. Conference participants want knowledge and skills to take back to their home campuses.

What measures of success did you apply? How did you use metrics to evaluate the success of your goals for this project, and what did you learn? It can also be helpful to identify unexpected outcomes - not just the goals you made at the start of the process.
