The Association of American Colleges and Universities is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for AAC&U’s 2015 Conference onDiversity, Equity, and Student Success: Assessing and Advancing Inclusive Excellence. AAC&U invites faculty, administrators, student affairs educators, and students to participate in the conference to help design and promote educational strategies that ensure all students have access to high-quality learning throughout their varied educational journeys.
Session proposals are invited that address one of the four themes below and that include evidence about what works, and what does not, to support equity in student persistence and high-quality learning. We look forward to your proposals in the context of any of these themes.
  • Diversity and Inclusive Excellence as an Institutional Value System: What are the policies and practices that promote campus climates for diversity, equity, access, and success so that each works individually and collectively?
  • Equity and High-Quality Learning for All Students: How can institutions develop student success plans that are inclusive of students’ diverse experiences and perspectives, advance equity in student achievement, and also improve student learning outcomes?
  • High-Impact Practices and Digital Innovations: How can campuses help students develop the intellectual capacities (e.g., investigation, evidence-based reasoning, integrative learning, and collaborative problem-solving) to explore unscripted problems within diverse communities and in global contexts?
  • Developing and Supporting Educators for Inclusive Excellence, Leadership, and Change: How can campuses prepare all faculty and staff to participate in and lead difficult dialogues about identity, power, and privilege? How can those conversations translate into meaningful campus change for inclusion and success of all faculty, staff, and students?
