Concurrent Session

Concurrent sessions must involve a minimum of two and up to four presenters in the presentation. Concurrent sessions are either 60-minutes or 75-minutes sessions which will be determined by the Conference Planning Committee. Presenters are encouraged to collaborate with colleagues and professionals from different campus units/offices and/or with colleagues from other institutions, both U.S. and non-U.S., for greater consideration.

Deep Dive Session

A Deep Dive session provides an opportunity for the presenter(s) to involve participants in interaction through hands-on activities and discussions. Deep Dive sessions are 120 minutes, including breaks and time for action planning. Deep Dive session submissions are expected to include a chair and have no more than three (3) additional presenters.

Poster Community

The Poster Community is intended to encourage conference attendees to explore emerging themes in global education, diversity, and inclusion through interactive dialogue and visual representations (infographics, pictures, graphs, etc.). Proposals may encompass a broad range of topics such as: Multicultural Student Experiences, Promising Practices/Case Studies, and research. Presenters will present their work concurrently during a 60-minute interactive session.

Critical Issues

Critical Issues will involve multiple 10-12 minute presentations related to one of the overarching themes. Accepted presentations will be assigned to a moderated Critical Issues Session (50 minutes total). Moderators (identified by Diversity Abroad) will facilitate 15 minutes of Q & A to address audience questions after all 3 presentations are finished. Presenters must develop a tool/reading list/resource/framework that can be shared with the attendees. For example, a session focused on inclusive hiring may include a sample interview rubric to mitigate bias.
