Proposal Review Process

Proposals were reviewed by members of the conference planning committee and CCPH staff. Proposals were expected to meet these minimum criteria:

  • Adherence to proposal submission instructions.
  • Relevance to the conference theme, goals and objectives.
  • Potential for engaging participants in substantive discussions.
  • Clarity of writing.

In soliciting proposals, the conference planning committee had these main objectives:

  • To achieve the goals and objectives of the conference.
  • To highlight exemplary models of community-campus partnerships that serve as vehicles for social change.
  • To ensure that the voices of those most affected by the issue or problem are heard.
  • To ensure that sessions combine a strong depth of content and an emphasis on interactive and creative approaches to teaching and learning that stimulate discussion.
  • To emphasize sessions that go beyond answering the “what?” questions to tackling the “so what” and “now what?" questions.

Expectations of Presenters

All presenters must register for the conference. Submitting presenters must indicate their agreement with the Submitting Presenter Agreement included on the Proposal Submission Forms:

"As the Submitting Presenter and main contact for this proposal, I understand that if this proposal is accepted, all presenters are expected to register and pay the registration fee for the conference and that it is my responsibility to inform my co-presenters of this requirement. If presenter registration fees are not received by the due date indicated in the acceptance letter, the session will not be included in the conference program. I understand that this proposal may be edited to fit the conference program. I understand that CCPH will provide [audiovisual aids – see forms for specifics as this varies by type of session]. If additional audiovisual aids are needed, the expense involved will be paid by the presenters prior to the conference unless otherwise indicated in writing from CCPH.”
