Call for Proposals

Clemson University Men of Color National Summit
Closing the Achievement Gap for African-American and Hispanic Males
April 25-26, 2019


The 2019 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 review 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 of African-American and Hispanic males. While all session proposals are welcomed, it is recommended that session proposals focus on high school 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 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.

The Call for Proposals submission process is open August 1, 2018 to October 5, 2018. All session proposals must be submitted on or before October 5, 2018, to be considered for review.
