The mission of CAHEP is to enrich the teaching and learning experiences of graduate students and faculty in the Association’s constituent higher education programs within North America and around the world. Toward that end, the purpose of the CAHEP Pre-Conference is to facilitate the exchange among program coordinators/directors, faculty, students, and other interested members of the Association.

In keeping with this year’s theme of “I Am A Scholar,” CAHEP seeks proposals to present research and scholarly papers or facilitate works in progress and interactive symposiums that look at the scholarship of graduate education specifically within higher education and student affairs programs. As a field, how do we mentor, encourage, and challenge the next generation of researchers and scholar-practitioners for the field? What perspectives and suggestions do current students have to help us improve practice and more effectively shape the future of professional preparation? How do we invite in the scholarship of colleagues who may have been marginalized to bring in new lenses for understanding the rich diversity of contexts within higher education?

With this context in mind, CAHEP is interested in proposals that might explore policies and 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. CAHEP encourages creativity in exploring and addressing challenges facing today’s higher education programs as well as those that may inform the next generation of scholars and teachers of higher education. We hope proposals can present conceptual, empirical, practical, and policy-based considerations in the study of higher education and preparation of higher education administrators, faculty, students, and independent scholars. We particularly welcome proposals and involvement from graduate students and proposals that focus on politics and policies that inform higher education practice.
