Now Accepting Paper Submissions for a Panel Titled “Collaborative Approaches to Achieving Student Success in PSE”
The past 20 years have seen frequent calls for college/university stakeholders to work together to support an ever increasingly diverse student body attain their academic and personal goals. Yet, many approaches to supporting student success are developed at the staff or faculty level without consideration and involvement of other key stakeholders who may provide value, support, and resources for sustainable and inclusive programming. We know great collaborative work is taking place at our postsecondary institutions and we invite you to share how your campus is working collaboratively to support student success.
The annual conference for the Canadian Society for the Study of Higher Education is taking place May 25-27th at Brock University in St. Catharines and the Supporting Student Success team is organizing a panel titled “Collaborative Approaches to Achieving Student Success in Canada’s Colleges & Universities.” If you are involved in, or know of a unique collaboration on your campus that supports student success, we want to hear from you! We are looking for up to 3 additional sets of presenters to join our panel in St. Catharines.
We seek individual presentations that highlight a multi-stakeholder and innovative approach to supporting student success at the departmental, faculty, institutional, or system level. We know that many of you are already engaged in unique approaches to supporting student success and this is your chance to share your work. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for our panel, please send a description of your program with the subject line “CSSHE proposal” to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your description should be no more than 750 words and include:
(a) how the collaboration supports student success
(b) the roles of various stakeholders involved (i.e students, faculty, student services staff, community, secondary schools, alumni)
(c) the evaluation/outcomes of the collaboration
(d) the feasibility of such a collaboration being expanded or implemented across other institutions and/or provinces.
The deadline for submissions is January 13th. After submissions are reviewed, the author(s) of the selected submissions will be notified of the decisions early in February.
