Region III and Campus Safety Spring Conference
Friday, March 30, 2018, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT
Category: Region Events

 

We’re all in higher education for the same goal: to help our students succeed—to make a better life for themselves—and to provide passion, vitality and resilience to our communities. But working day-to-day within our respective niches, specializations and job functions, it’s easy to lose track of that unified goal.

 This year we’re celebrating what brings us together.

 At the Region III Joint Spring Conference we’d like showcase best practices and share stories that highlight unique, unexpected and fruitful collaborations between departments at your college—or even between colleges. We want to shine a light on cross-disciplinary, holistic approaches to achieving student success, to reestablish connections, and to reorient ourselves to that common purpose.

 This event is a joint effort of the Association of Florida Colleges (AFC) Region III and the Campus Safety Commission, but all higher education professionals are encouraged to attend.

 CALL FOR PROPOSALS – Deadline March 2, 2018!

 The Association of Florida Colleges (AFC), its Central Florida Board, and the Campus Safety Commission cordially invite you to submit a presentation proposal for the AFC Region III Joint Spring Conference.

 Presentations should relate to the conference theme: “All Together Now!” Particularly we’d like to feature examples of collaborative problem-solving and to promote shared investment in student success. Topics that impact a wide range of college functions are encouraged, as well as case studies that demonstrate different ways to bridge gaps and unite faculty or staff under a common mission.

 Proposals must include a title, presenter name and contact information, and a brief abstract (no more than 250 words). Completed proposal forms should be sent to James Miller, AFC Region III Director, at millerja@seminolestate.edu with the subject line “Presentation Proposal for Region III Conference.”

The deadline to submit a proposal for the Region III Joint Spring Conference is Friday 2 March 2018.

Proposals submitted by the stated deadline will be reviewed by the conference planning committee and presenters will be notified of the committee’s decision by the week following that deadline.
