Call for Workshop Proposals

The success of prior conferences has always depended on you, our conference presenters and speakers!  We encourage you to submit a workshop proposal so that your colleagues may benefit from your knowledge and insight.  We are particularly interested in sessions that feature co-presenters, group presentations, and panels.

Proposals must be received by November 30, 2020 @ 11:59 PM.  The limited number of workshop opportunities may necessitate an earlier deadline, so please submit your proposal as soon as possible.  Selected presenters will be notified by December 8, 2020 and must register and pay registration fees in full

TABPHE does not pay an honorarium, nor assume travel expenses or any other costs associated with presenting at the conference.  Proposals will be judged on content, clarity and reflection of the conference theme.  Time allotted for each workshop is 50 minutes, including questions and answers (essential in a virtual environment).  We strongly encourage presenters to have presentation slides and “handouts” ready for uploading to the conference app and website at the time of proposal acceptance.

We invite you to submit your ideas, inspiration and innovative presentations that reflect the essence of this year’s conference theme,"DELIVERING ON THE PROMISE: Equity | Social Justice | Restorative Practices.”  Please submit your proposal that aligns with one of the conference strands below:

Conference Strands

  • Equity: How can we access resources for our students, staff and faculty to ensure that equity is achieved?  What resources are necessary to provide professional development that educate professionals about equity & inclusion issues? Examples: Career Colleges Impact on Higher Education ● African-American Male Initiatives, Research & Solutions ● Maximizing Resources- Improving Access to Higher Education ● Diversity and Multiculturalism ● Recruitment and Retention

  • Social Justice: Social justice training also provides insights into our work in every context- financial, facilities, career services, leadership, and more. Only by recognizing that every aspect of our leadership affects social justice on our campuses can we enact systemic change in our tradition-laden institutions and ensure a sustainable future for our increasingly diverse student populations and the larger society. How do we provide such leadership in today’s higher education environment, which is characterized by continuous uncertainty and composed of a plethora of professional perspectives?
  • Restorative Practices: Restorative practices are processes that proactively build healthy relationships and a sense of community to prevent and address conflict and wrongdoing.  Restorative practices are increasingly being applied in individual schools and school districts to address youth behavior, rule violations, and to improve school climate and culture.
