Proposal Formats: Posters
- Posters are a mechanism for scholars to engage in interactive discussion with other conference participants about a research project that has been completed or is in developing stages. The poster venue allows scholars with similar research interests to interact by using the poster as a focal point.
- Poster presenters will display their research on a large bulletin board (provided at the conference). Presenters will attend the poster session to discuss the project with conference attendees.
Proposals should provide:
- A clear statement of the purpose or goals of the research (i.e., the primary research questions or issues being addressed);
- A brief summary of the theoretical or conceptual foundation for the work;
- A description of the methodology being used and the project findings (if applicable); and The theoretical and/or practical significance and implications of the research.
Poster proposals will be evaluated on:
- Importance of the topic, issue, or problem to the field of higher education;
- Quality of the theoretical or conceptual framework; and
- Clarity of objectives and intended outcomes of the research.
The following sections will not be accepting poster submissions:
- Council for the Advancement of Higher Education Programs (CAHEP)
- Council on Ethnic Participation (CEP)
- Council on Public Policy in Higher Education (CPPHE)
