2020 Call For Proposals

ASHE Council on Public Policy in Higher Education (CPPHE) encourages the submission of proposals that examine the link between public policy and interdisciplinary coalition building. The CPPHE Pre-Conference Forum examines the role of higher education research in informing decision-making in the public policy arena, while simultaneously exploring how key actors shape public policy. This year, we will focus on issues surrounding the translation of policy research to policy action, such as federal policymaking and its impact on state policy, alternative methods of communicating research, and engaging diverse voices on emerging higher education policy issues.
The CPPHE Pre-Conference Forum provides participants the opportunity to explore and discuss significant public policy issues that affect higher education in the U.S at the local, state, and federal levels. CPPHE invites proposals from researchers, policymakers, and public policy analysts for policy relevant research and scholarly papers and symposia. Proposals that emphasize active dialogue and audience participation are particularly welcome. The CPPHE Pre-Conference Forum generally features more applied work than is found on the general conference program.
Proposal formats accepted:

  • Research Paper
  • Scholarly Paper
  • Interactive Symposium
  • Self-Designed Paper Session


CPPHE Pre-Conference Chair:
DeShawn Preston – United Negro College Fund, deshawn.preston@uncf.org


Registration for the ASHE 2020 Virtual Conference will open in late July.
