Educational Sessions

This year’s conference theme focuses on the present time and seizing opportunities as they come. Do you love to program? Have an exciting idea you’d like to share? Looking to demonstrate some social media skills? Then Seas the Day by  submitting an educational session proposal!

The Conference Planning Team is seeking educational sessions from professionals and students that compromise of the 11 ACUI core competencies. Educational sessions are an important way to share expertise and your opportunity to showcase your unique contributions to your campus and our profession. Session proposals from professional staff are due October 31.

Steal This Idea

We are looking to showcase work from talented marketing teams across the region with Steal This Idea!

This annual ACUI tradition seeks to display your marketing and promotional ideas throughout the region and spotlight them at the conference. This is also an opportunity for other campuses to “steal” (respectfully and giving credit where it’s due) and bring ideas to their campus, building off the creativity. Awards are given at the regional conference to our most creative campaigns in 12 different categories. This tradition is open to both students and staff.

Bring Back to Shore is our “best in show” category, which will be determined by a panel of judges. We will also have the Pier Favorite, selected by conference attendees. Winners for each adjudicated category will be chosen before the start of the conference and notified by Friday, November 4.

Submit an entry form by Friday, October 14. Good Luck!

Submit Now

If your entries exceed more than 100MB, please complete the form multiple times to accommodate your submissions.
