Concurrent Session

Concurrent sessions are 60-minute interactive sessions that include panel discussion and slide presentations. Presenters are encouraged to collaborate with colleagues and professionals from different campus units/offices and/or with colleagues from other institutions for greater consideration. Presenters are encouraged to develop a tool/resource/framework that can be shared with the attendees.

Deep Dive Session

Deep Dive sessions provide an opportunity for participants to interact with the session content through hands-on activities and discussions. Deep Dive sessions are 75 minutes, including a 30-45 minute presentation with the additional time remaining for real-time engagement including breakout sessions. Presenters must develop a tool/resource/framework that can be shared with the attendees. For example, hiring sessions (sample interview rubric to mitigate inclusive bias, sample rubric for evaluating best practices).


The e-posters encourage conference attendees to explore emerging themes in global education, diversity, and inclusion through interactive dialogue and visual representations (infographics, pictures, graphs, etc.). Topics may encompass a broad range of topics such as multicultural student experiences, promising practices, case studies, and research. Presenters will have the opportunity to submit a 5 minute video presentation of their poster that will be accessible to attendees during the 60-minute session. Real-time engagement with attendees will be limited.

Critical Issues

The 30-minute Critical Issues sessions are live sessions to explore critical issues related to the overarching track. Optional to include slides in the presentation. Real time engagement with attendees through polls and Q&A chat. Presenters are encouraged to develop a tool/resource/framework that can be shared with the attendees.
