Preparing a Session Submission
As you prepare your submission, ensure your session proposal:

  • Will fill a knowledge gap and/or provides information needed by colleagues
  • Answers a question or offers a solution to a problem
  • Is succinct, uses proper grammar and spelling, minimizes jargon, and uses concrete/specific language
  • Identifies core competencies, learning outcomes, and all other questions posed in the submission form
  • Reflects a session you can commit to creating and presenting

Additionally, you must comply with all the the eligibility requirements and language policies listed below.

Eligibility Guidelines
Every presenter at the ACUI annual conference must be registered for the conference or the ACUI Expo. Additionally, all presenters must meet at least one of the following qualifications:

  • All individual members in good standing, employees or students at an institutional member in good standing, and union veterans are eligible to present educational sessions at the annual conference.
  • ACUI nonmembers representing not-for-profit organizations are eligible to present educational sessions. Nonmembers are encouraged to present with ACUI members whenever possible.
  • Every corporate presenter at the ACUI annual conference must be an associate member in good standing and have a booth in the ACUI Expo. If the session does not include a co-presenter from a member institution, a conference sponsorship at a minimum level of $5,000 is required. 

Language Statement
In keeping with the spirit and letter of the ACUI Inclusive Language Policy, we ask that all presenters at ACUI conferences be mindful that our audiences include students and professionals from all types of campuses and educational institutions, as well as corporate and nonprofit members and partners. Every effort is expected of presenters and speakers to include appropriate language, material, and examples for the Association’s target audience and membership.

For example:

  • Students should be referred to as adults, not as "kids," "boys," or "girls."
  • Try to use gender-neutral language such as "people" or "they" and be wary of gendered terms such as "guys," "spokesman," "manning the operation," etc.
  • Avoid ableist language such as "as you can see," "crippled by," or "crazy."
  • Consider whether a view is U.S.-centric; even seasonal references are different for members in the Southern Hemisphere.
