Submission Deadline: October 25, 2017

Loyola University Chicago staff, faculty, administrators, and students are invited to submit a proposal to present at the Inaugural Student Support Services Conference to be held on February 9, 2018 at the Lake Shore Campus. We welcome proposals for presentations or posters that relate to student services at Loyola University Chicago.

Proposals that pertain to one of the following areas are highly encouraged:

  • Sustainable Support Services
  • Ignatian Values in Action
  • Academic Advising
  • Improving Student Retention

This conference will strive to provide a local professional development and networking opportunity for staff, faculty, administrators, and students at Loyola University Chicago. We look forward to engaging presentations and dialogue as we learn from the good work done across campus.  
Proposals must be submitted via the online form by October 25, 2017. All proposals will be reviewed by the conference committee and presenters will be notified by December 4. Proposals will be evaluated based on relevance to the conference theme, connection to work done at Loyola University Chicago, and appeal to conference attendees.
Presenters can choose from the following format options:

Educational presentation: These sessions will run concurrently. They are appropriate for presentations on research, innovative practices, theory application, or successful programs and initiatives. These presentations may be formal lectures or informal discussions. These sessions will be 50 minutes long.

Poster session: This session provides a more informal opportunity to network with colleagues while presenting new ideas or programs. This will also give the presenter the opportunity to solicit feedback while presenting their work visually.
We look forward to your proposal and to learning with you on February 9!
