Call for Presentation Proposals

2018 Great Lakes Regional Student Success Conference

Closing the Gap


February 15-16, 2018
Detroit, MI

First consideration given to proposals submitted by November 17, 2017.


Practitioners (faculty, staff, and administrators) interested in sharing best practices and innovative strategies for access, retention and completion for students are encouraged to submit a proposal for consideration.

Presentations on strategies for access, completion and success for diverse populations, particularly underrepresented minorities, first generation students, students with disabilities, and immigrant students are strongly encouraged.

Proposals will be evaluated based on relevance to the conference theme, appeal to conference participants, ingenuity, and applicability for participants after the conference. We are seeking a wide range of presentation topics highlighting successful initiatives at higher education institutions from a variety of higher education professionals in the Great Lakes region.

NEW this year: a presentation track focused on Faculty, in addition to our traditional track offered for General Practitioners in higher education.
