CAHEP Pre-Con Forum

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2022
8:00am-6:30pm Pacific/Las Vegas Time
Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada

The CAHEP Pre-Conference will explore humanizing practices in the organization, administration, delivery, and outcomes of graduate higher education programs; teaching and learning within programs; and graduate student and faculty experiences, including recruitment, socialization, mentorship, and success. As the global health pandemic necessitates changes in how we connect with and learn from one another, CAHEP encourages creativity in exploring and addressing challenges facing today’s higher education programs. Presentations will feature conceptual, empirical, practical, and policy-based considerations for humanizing the study of higher education and preparation of higher education administrators and faculty.

2022 CALL FOR PROPOSALS
DEADLINE: APRIL 18, 2022, 4:00PM PACIFIC/LAS VEGAS TIME

In keeping with this year’s theme of Humanizing Higher Education, CAHEP seeks proposals to present research and scholarly papers or facilitate roundtables and symposia that promote humanizing policies, practices, and perspectives within higher education programs. As higher education programs continue to operate in the midst of a global health pandemic, systemic racial injustice, and economic inequality, attention to how programs can be (more) humanizing is warranted. Recent trends include increased burnout and turnover in the higher education labor force (including those exiting the field) and indicators of declining interest in graduate study in higher education and student affairs. Meanwhile, higher education program leaders and faculty continue to navigate institutional pressures related to recruitment, admissions, and revenue generation—pressures which may be at odds with values of equity, justice, and humanization.

 With this context in mind, CAHEP is interested in proposals that might explore humanizing practices in the organization, administration, delivery, and outcomes of graduate higher education programs; teaching and learning within programs; and graduate student and faculty experiences, including recruitment, socialization, mentorship, and success. As the global health pandemic necessitates changes in how we connect with and learn from one another, CAHEP encourages creativity in exploring and addressing challenges facing today’s higher education programs. We hope proposals can present conceptual, empirical, practical, and policy-based considerations for humanizing the study of higher education and preparation of higher education administrators and faculty. We particularly welcome proposals and involvement from graduate students and proposals that focus on populations that are often dehumanized and marginalized within higher education programs.
