Did you do something fantastic while abroad?

Are you an international student here at DU?

Have you found a way to be global without ever leaving home?

Do you have any idea of what internationalization even means?

If any of these questions speak to you, we want you to be a part of the DU Summit on Internationalization! Join the conversation and share your global experiences, research, and/or interests.

Call for Proposals: Deadline 8am Monday, March 3, 2014

DU International Student Experiences Symposium: Abbreviated Speaking, Multimedia, and Poster Presentations

As part of the Summit, the DU International Student Experiences Symposium will highlight the diverse range of scholarship and experiences that DU students engage in abroad and at DU, including research, service, internships, and other academic global endeavors. These experiences will be showcased through poster or 15 to 20 minute speaking/ multimedia presentations. International students, study abroad returnees, and all undergraduates and graduates with globally-minded experiences are encouraged to submit presentation proposals.

Symposium Presentation and Poster Guidelines

  • If you are presenting (speaking/ multimedia), you will be allowed 15 minutes for your presentation, as well as 5 minutes for questions.
  • Posters will be displayed on easels and must have a stiff backing, with dimensions not exceeding 3 X 4 feet. Posters will be on display throughout the event and the presenter will be required to be present at a designated time to answer questions. All visual materials must be neat, clear, and legible.

Full Length Sessions

Students are also welcomed and encouraged to submit proposals for the Summit's full length session presentations, workshops, or panel discussions (60-120 minutes).

Standard sessions will be 60 minutes. If you do not think you have enough content to fill a 60 minute session, consider organizing a panel or developing a collaborative session (e.g., several student organizations collaborating on a student programming session; international students and/or study abroad students collaborating on a session; students presenting globally-relevant research).

Please see the Internationalization Summit Session Proposal webpage for more information about proposing a session. Proposals may come from diverse philosophies and perspectives and may be experiential and/or collaborative featuring other students, faculty, staff, or organizations.

Session proposals (full-length, abbreviated, multimedia, and poster) must be submitted via the Online Submission Form by 8am Monday, March 3, 2014. It is recommended that applicants type up their proposals in a separate document and copy and paste the responses into the application as you will not be able to save or return to incomplete submissions.

Successful submissions will be notified no later than March 10th.

Not interested in presenting this time around?  Save the date and stay tuned for more information on event registration.
