Call for Proposals for 2016 Annual Conference on Higher Education

The AAUP Annual Conference on the State of Higher Education will be held June 15-19, 2016, in conjunction with the AAUP Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. As we move into our second century, we invite reflection on racial, social, and labor justice in higher education.

For example, presentations might explore

Issues of college access for students of color and those from working class families.
Making sure that AAUP chapters are inclusive of diverse groups of faculty, including scholars of color and faculty in contingent appointments.
Winning improvements in working conditions for faculty in contingent positions.
History of the racial or labor justice movements in higher education.
Recruiting and retaining scholars of color.
Challenges or opportunities facing minority serving institutions.
The future of ethnic or labor studies in the academy.
Presentation proposals on all topics of interest to a diverse, multidisciplinary higher education audience are welcome, but special consideration will be given to those that work within this theme.

Visit our call for proposals page for additional guidelines and an online submission form.
