Cultivate Your Community: Partnerships & Relationships in Higher Education

The 2018 ACHE South Conference Planning Committee invites members and friends of the Association to submit proposals for conference sessions that will cultivate our partnerships and relationships in higher education. We seek conference presentations that demonstrate:

  • Unexpected partnerships that have led to wonderful opportunities
    When weird works….or doesn't: The "Keep Austin Weird" phrase celebrates fiercely individualistic people thriving in a diverse environment. Tell us about the unexpected partnerships that have led to wonderful opportunities for your students or your community. Alternately, let us know when those odd collaborations didn't go quite the way you had hoped. In other words, tell us when weird is wonderful or when weird is just weak
  • How you have effectively built or improved a team or community relationship
    Leadership & Relationships: Barbara Kellerman writes, "the webs of leadership are tangled – the leader, the follower, and the context - hard to separate from one another." Tell us about how you have effectively built a team, improved relationships within your community, or executed a shared vision. What leadership experiences can you share that have led to improved relationships?
  • How you have used partnerships to grow
    Growing Partnerships: Austin has recently been described as a "boom town" because of its economic growth, large number of college graduates, and its proliferation of jobs opportunities. Tell us how you've used partnerships to grow your own "boom programs" that have led to prosperity for your students, your department/unit, and your institution.

You may submit your ACHESouth 2018 proposal online by Thursday, November 30 at 5 p.m. The proposal team will review all submissions and inform you of your status on or before December 12. Please note that presenters must register and submit their registration fee prior to the start of the conference.

Please help us keep Austin Weird and join us in Austin, Texas, April 10-12 as a conference presenter!
