Call for Programs
Submissions Due: Friday, February 26
AAUW and NASPA- Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education are pleased to invite you to submit a proposal for the 25th annual National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL). NCCWSL is a two-and-a-half day conference focused on important and contemporary leadership issues and is designed to help students hone their leadership skills for work on their campus and in their community.
NCCWSL will be held June 3 -5, 2010 at the University of Maryland, College Park, and will focus on the theme, Leadership for Today and Tomorrow. Conference attendees are both current and aspiring female leaders on their campuses and in their communities. While most attendees are 2nd and 3rd year college students, NCCWSL also attracts non-traditional and graduate students interested in leadership and feminism. During the conference, participants have the opportunity to explore the philosophical underpinnings of leadership and women’s issues, to develop skills for being an effective campus leader, and to learn about opportunities for personal development.
The 2010 NCCWSL Workshop Committee encourages you to submit program proposals for general interest sessions lasting 75 minutes. The committee expects program proposals to show evidence of thought with respect to the diverse world in which these college women live, work, and study. While the committee does not offer an exhaustive list of possible topics, one may find the following helpful in considering workshops ideas:
§ Empower women to engage with their campus and home communities through:
o Community Service
o Ethical leadership
o Public Policy
§ Assist women to lead others with integrity on their campuses and beyond
§ Encourage women to explore their entrepreneurial curiosities
§ Help prepare women for life after college:
o Considering, selecting, and applying to graduate school
o Managing finances (from creating budgets to purchasing a house or running a business)
o Negotiating salary
o Understanding professional etiquette
o Searching for a job
§ Explore issues that are especially significant to women including:
o Leading a life of balance / wellness
o Engaging with the concept of “Feminism”
o Sexual Assault Prevention Programming
On behalf of the Conference Committee, we encourage you to submit a proposal that will inspire conference attendees and help them to learn about Leadership for Today and Tomorrow. All workshops will be held on Friday, June 4. Notifications regarding the status of your program will be sent by Wednesday, March 17.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
