ACPA22 Convention Call for Proposals


Use this form to submit a Career Snapshot, Convention Program, or Pre-Convention Workshops ONLY. To submit a proposal for one of the Scholarship Session Types please use the Scholarship Session Program Proposal Form


Thank you for your interest in submitting an educational session proposal for the ACPA22 Annual Convention in St. Louis, Missouri 6-9 March 2022. For our first in-person convention in two years and the seventh time in St. Louis, we want to recognize the value of convening in place. As we develop the details for 2022, we recognize the difficulty individuals may have in attending in person. We need to continue engaging those individuals and ensuring they are convening with us in some capacity. We plan to connect people, ideas, institutions, and policy. And, we want to cultivate research, practice, ideas, and friendships.

ACPA22 will forge new opportunities and paths. It is our opportunity to use our history as we push forward for a better world. The Mississippi River is a symbol for our association. The headwaters represent the past and where we come from. We will reflect on our history over the next two years as we celebrate our centennial. The convergence of the Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio Rivers symbolically represents where we are as a higher education association. As we come together during a crucial time in our world’s history, we must ask how are we taking care of our people, how are we honoring our scholars, and what does it mean to advance our strategic plan? As we flow downriver, we focus on our 99th anniversary in New Orleans and the bold future that is before us. We ask, where are we going as a profession, how are today’s crises affecting the future of higher education, and where do we position the association in the realm of higher education?

The ACPA22 Convention Planning Team invites educational session proposals that seek to engage with these goals. This Call for Proposals includes the following session types:
