Call for Proposals: ACHE 2022
October 24 - 26, 2022
New Orleans, LA
"Equity, Access & Belonging: Continuing Higher Education's Commitment Today, Tomorrow and into the Future"
We will finally be together again! After a long time apart, we will soon be together again in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Program and Conference planning committee for the 2022 ACHE Annual Conference & Meetings is excited to invite our domestic and international members, change agents, students, and leaders in the higher education community to submit proposals for conference sessions.
The conference theme for the ACHE 2022 conference, “Equity, Access & Belonging: Continuing Higher Education’s Commitment Today, Tomorrow and into the Future”, is an opportunity to have critical conversations, share best practices and discuss innovative and creative initiatives. The United States has struggled the last several years with multiple significant challenges that have impacted equity and access, in many areas, including, higher education. “The recent triple crisis experienced, specifically, the COVID-19 pandemic, the systemic racism in this country, and the racial inequities in higher education, has prompted a clarion call for more effective strategies that will result in more equitable outcomes for underrepresented populations by placing DEI at the core of our institutional practice” (Clayton, T., 2021).
This conference is an opportunity to come together as innovative change agents and collaborative partners to develop strategic initiatives that will positively impact continuing higher education. The global impact we can collectively have on our practice and our students, as a result of the knowledge shared and gained will manifest today, tomorrow and into the future.
Topics for proposals include, but are not limited to the following:
