Proposal Submission Form



OAAA serves a constituency which includes academic advisors, academic counselors, counselors, faculty members, administrators, and others in academic and student affairs who are concerned with the intellectual, relational, developmental, and vocational needs of students. OAAA is a representative for and advocate of academic advisors and academic counselors in universities, colleges, community colleges, technical colleges and schools, public and private. It is a forum for discussion, debate, and the exchange of ideas. OAAA works to promote the recognition of the profession of academic advising in the state of Oregon.

In keeping with OAAA’s mission of supporting the development and professional growth of academic advisors and academic counselors in higher education in Oregon, we are seeking proposals that address categories such as academic counseling, community college and transfer advising, working with under-represented student populations, and culturally sensitive advising. Proposals that speak to these topics specifically through the lens of Oregon’s institutions, student populations, and legislation are especially encouraged.

Concurrent sessions at this conference will run as 50 minute blocks (inclusive of Q&A). Proposals will be evaluated based upon:

  • Relevance- Content aligns with OAAA’s mission, OAAA constituents, timeliness of topics, and/or student populations in Oregon.
  • Outcomes – Stated outcomes are clear and provide participants with specific take-away items/concepts
  • Scope – The scope and level of the proposal topic is broad and appropriate for its audience; it can be translated to apply to different types of institutions or departments.
  • Format – Session delivery format embraces various elements and methods of engagement and learning styles

Proposals accepted now through February 22nd, 2017
