If you have any questions about proposal submission requirements, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Our advisers will assist you throughout the proposal preparation steps.
What if my proposal is selected?
Selected students will work closely with mentors in preparation for their Symposium presentations through workshops and one-on-one advising sessions.
What if my proposal is not selected?
Due to the limited size of the Symposium, we expect the selection process to be highly competitive. If your proposal is not selected this year, we encourage you to resubmit.
Our advisers will gladly work with any student who would like to improve their proposal for the following year.
The symposium committee values and encourages involvement from faculty and staff. Here are some of the ways you can support the Global Engagement Symposium.
- Volunteer to be a Symposium Mentor. Your constructive feedback will help a student capitalize on their strengths and identify areas for improvement as they continue to share their research and experiences.
- Encourage your globally engaged students to submit a proposal.
- Recommend candidates for future keynote speakers.
- Identify offices and departments for symposium co-sponsorship.
To get involved, or if you have any questions, you can always reach a member of the symposium committee at email@example.com.
