Call for Proposals: Leadership in Higher Education Conference

If you serve in a leadership role on campus, here’s your chance to get involved in a new conference developed just for academic leaders.

Brought to you by Magna Publications, producers of Academic Leader newsletter and the Teaching Professor Conferences, the Leadership in Higher Education Conference is accepting speaking proposals for its inaugural conference, Oct. 6-8 in Atlanta.

As a presenter, you’ll make a meaningful contribution to this dynamic and interactive conference. You’ll extend your own network and grow professionally. You’ll help other academic leaders examine the challenges, issues, and trends affecting management in higher education today—and return to campus with an invigorated outlook and an actionable plan for change.

Submitting a proposal is easy. Areas of interest include the following tracks; however compelling and relevant proposals that fall outside of these designated topics are also welcome:

Topical Area 1: Best Practices for Deans and Department Chairs
Topical Area 2: Leadership and Management
Topical Area 3: Evaluation and Assessment
Topical Area 4: Faculty Hiring and Development
Topical Area 5: Issues and Trends in Higher Education

Featuring two-and-a-half intensive days of plenary sessions, preconference workshops, concurrent sessions, and roundtable discussions, the Leadership in Higher Education Conference will provide insights that help academic leaders set direction, solve problems, and make a positive imprint on their campus. This is your opportunity to share your expertise at a conference of your peers.

Submissions are due May 13, 2016.
