Call for Proposals

Building Bridges to Success for African American and Hispanic Males

The 2020 Clemson University Men of Color National Summit will offer educational, informative and enlightening sessions that enable summit participants to experience engaging, empirical and interactive learning opportunities. Accordingly, the Clemson University Men of Color National Summit's proposal evaluation committee seeks session proposals from a diverse array of leaders, scholars and educators that address critical social issues, highlight solution-centered perspectives and describe best practices affecting the achievement and college readiness of African American and Hispanic males. While all session proposals are welcomed, it is recommended that session proposals focus on high school students, college students or a professional audience. Moreover, we strongly encourage session proposals that are designed to motivate, inspire and educate African American and Hispanic male students to succeed in high school, college and beyond. Proposals that focus on high school students and college students should describe the purpose of the session, learning objectives and expected outcomes of the session as well as provide information that describes the presentation format. Proposals that focus on a professional audience should clearly describe the audience the proposal addresses as well as delineate the learning objectives, presentation format and goals of the session.
