ASC Annual Conference: Applying Your Skills for Social Change

Conference Date: Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019

Call for Proposals

The Walden University Academic Skills Center and Center for Social Change welcome proposals from Walden students, alumni, faculty, and staff to co-present collaborative sessions at our Applying Your Skills for Social Change Online Conference.

Four openings are available for joint presentations.

Presentations must address ways students (undergraduate or graduate level) have applied skills they acquired in their Walden degree program to enact social change in their academic or professional community.

Proposals will be accepted through Sunday, May 19, 2019.

Proposal Guidelines

Presenters must include:

  • a current, active Walden student in good academic standing OR a Walden alumnus, and
  • a current Walden faculty member OR a current Walden staff member.

If you are interested in this presentation opportunity, please discuss it with your intended co-presenter(s). Your faculty or staff co-presenter must approve your proposal before you submit it for consideration.

Submit Your Proposal


To submit your proposal using our online proposal submission form, please have the following information ready:

  • Name, Walden University e-mail address, and college or center affiliation: student, alumni, faculty, and staff who will co-present the session (presentations may include up to three presenters)
  • Title of proposed session
  • Abstract for proposed session: 150 words maximum; do not submit your dissertation abstract – instead, write a unique description for your 25-minute session; your abstract, and your presentation, should focus on specific skills and how you applied them to enact social change.
  • Two learning outcomes: e.g., what do you want the participants to learn and/or achieve in your session? Use action verbs such as describe, analyze, explain, evaluate, or apply in this section.
  • List and description of activities and timing: show how your session will be organized; list activities and the length of each in order; all activities must fit within your session’s allotted 25 minutes. Each session must include an interactive activity, such as an engaging discussion question, to maximize audience learning and participation.


This webinar was hosted by CAEX faculty and Dissertation Editor, Dr. Joseph Gredler,
and CAEX Faculty and Coordinator of the Doctoral Peer Mentor Program, Dr. Christy Fraenza.
It was recorded and made available within 1 weeks time from the presentation.
