Leadership 2015: Call for Presentations

Honor in Service: Leaders Responding to the Needs of Our Time

March 10-11, 2015  

Our call for papers is now closed.  We sought submissions beginning June 2nd - October 29, 2014.  We wish to thank all those who participated and we look forward to their presentations!

This conference will bring together scholars, practitioners, and students passionate about the study and practice of service and provide a forum for sharing of service-related knowledge and ideas, with the goal of preparing participants to more effectively “respond to the needs of our time."

Submissions are invited from faculty, administrators, practitioners, and graduate and undergraduate students on topics related to:
• Theory of Service
• Case Studies (Best Practices) of Service
• Reasons for Service
• Service-Oriented Research
• Service Learning

Both oral presentation and poster session submissions are sought.

Suggested Presentation Lengths
Faculty Presentations: 20 minutes
Student Presentations: 10 minutes
Panels may be composed of students and faculty presenters, taking into account the number of 20 min faculty and/or 10 min student presentations to make up the length of the session.

Judging Criteria
Submissions will be judged on intellectual merit or practical application, quality of the abstract, and fit with conference theme.

Notifications of acceptance will be made by November 10, 2014. All accepted authors must register for the conference before November 30, 2014. Authors are responsible for their registration, travel, and lodging costs. Each presenter must be available for his or her presentation no matter when it is scheduled during the conference. Session assignments will be made by January 16, 2015.

Review Process
All submissions will be subject to a blind review process.

Selected presenters will have the opportunity to share pictures and videos of their service on conference-related social media.

For more information on the call for presentations, please contact Lt. Col. Keith Kline, Associate Professor of Psychology and Conference Program Committee Chair.
