Submit a proposal for a session at this year's symposium. Proposals are currently being accepted for the following tracks:
Sessions in this track are for presentations of quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-method studies on first-year students' transition, learning, development, performance, retention, and other relevant issues.
Assessed institutional initiatives
Sessions in these tracks are for presentations addressing and highlighting specific programs or initiatives that have been instituted, assessed, and demonstrated success on a particular campus.
Trends and issues
Sessions in this track are for presentations addressing emerging trends, current issues, and broad concepts. Examples include college completion, characteristics, needs of special student populations, campus civility, global citizenship, teaching, and learning.
Sessions in this track are designed to promote an open dialogue around a significant issue or theme. Rather than making formal presentations, session facilitators will encourage and maintain substantive dialogue. Facilitated dialogue should not emphasize any one program or institutional initiative, but rather give all session attendees an opportunity to share ideas and learn from one another’s perspectives.

- Title of presentation
- Presenter information and biography (75-word limit)
