General Conference Sections

ASHE encourages proposals from a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives (including historical, legal, and philosophical traditions) and has a strong tradition of embracing research that utilizes quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods approaches.
The online submission system requires authors to submit proposals to sections based on the topic of the proposal.  These sections are linked below:

  1. Students

  2. Organization, administration, and leadership

  3. Teaching, learning, and assessment

  4. Faculty

  5. Contexts, methods, and foundations

  6. Policy, finance, and economics

  7. International

These seven sections encompass the range of higher education research typically presented at the annual conference. Authors should be able to identify a section related to their topic, even if that topic is not explicitly mentioned in the descriptors for a particular section. The section descriptions (linked above) necessarily overlap. Authors are encouraged to use their best judgment to determine the most appropriate section. The Program Committee may redirect a proposal to another section as they deem appropriate.

Please note: proposals may not exceed 2,500 words.
ALL PROPOSALS ARE DUE MAY 5, 2017 at 5:00 PM Pacific.
