20-minute Presentation: Similar to a 30-minute Presentation, a 20-minute presentation illustrates an original paper, research, or best practice. 20-minute Presentations will be grouped together with two additional/related presentations in a 1 hour session with 15 additional minutes for Q&A.


Poster Presentations: A poster session is the presentation of research information illustrated using a 2 x 3 ft. poster board. Poster displays will be available for viewing during a joint reception and poster session open to all attendees


Presentation Approaches

Thinking Big Dialogue: What keeps you up at night? These sessions should focus on engaging discussions or exercises that delve into relevant issues/questions.  Attendees should expect to gain insight and hear alternative perspectives on a topic.


How-To: What processes worked for you? These sessions should focus on process/infrastructure/policy. Attendees should expect to walk-away with a clear set of actionable steps.

Proven Programs: What are you doing right? These sessions are informational in nature. Presenters will share case-studies of projects/partnerships/programs that are working at their institution. Attendees should expect to discover new programs and ideas.
