Applied Learning Conference

Collaborating for Student Success 2019: Advising, Applied Learning, and the Student Success Summit

We are now accepting proposals for presentations at Collaborating for Student Success 2019: Advising, Applied Learning, and the Student Success Summit

Dates: October 28-30, 2019
Location: The Desmond - Albany, NY

Student success is the primary goal for every institution of higher education.  Achieving the outcomes we desire is a complicated process and requires the commitment and collaboration of staff and faculty across campus.  As SUNY is building capacity and best practices for individualized education featuring campus and student leadership/models/methods, our communities of practice have joined together in order to facilitate collaboration, networking and sharing of ideas to improve offerings across the state.

This summit will bring together three SUNY Communities of Practice: Advising, Applied Learning, and the Student Success Network.  We are requesting proposals on topics relevant to student success, applied learning, and advising specifically, but we also hope that as you craft your presentations, you keep the overall collaborative theme of the conference in mind.

This conference will offer a range of interactive sessions and workshops for a variety of audiences including faculty, staff, students, administrators and community and industry partners. The conference is open to SUNY and non-SUNY participants.

Visit the Conference Website for detailed track descriptions and session format information as well as the link to submit your proposal online. 

Submission Deadline is July 7th.
