Proposal Review Process


In soliciting proposals, the conference planning committee has 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 ensure that sessions go beyond describing a particular partnership, project or issue to also (a) analyze what worked, didn’t work and why and (b) facilitate the ability of participants to apply the information shared.


Proposals will be 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.


All presenters must register for the conference. Submitting presenters must indicate their agreement with this statement included in the Proposal Submission Form:

"As the 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 PowerPoint set-up and DVD player as appropriate. 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.”
