Conferences

National Outreach Scholarship Conference – Students should submit proposals to NOSC 2012 by April 30, 2012.  Proposals are easy to write and do not take very long.  Projects do not have to be completed at the time of proposal submission.  A few paragraphs about the project is all that is needed.   The registration fee for ALL student presenters will be paid for by the UA Graduate School.

IMPACT National Conference – The IMPACT Conference is focused on the civic engagement of college students in community service, service-learning, community-based research, advocacy and other forms of social action.

Imagining America Conference – IA conferences attract college presidents, administrators, professors, students, and community stakeholders. Topics are discussed at various levels of scale ranging from the course to campus-wide initiatives and beyond, and from local organizing to national policy and international exchange. Interactive session formats take place on-campus and at metropolitan and rural off-campus sites of campus-community collaborations.

Institute on College Student Values – The 2013 Dalton Institute concurrent session presenters will include leading scholars and practitioners who have studied college student character development. This annual event allows some of the most respected scholars in the field of student affairs and higher education to share their thoughts on the methods which colleges and universities can use to actively encourage moral and civic commitment, ethical behavior, and the process of character development.
