View Track Descriptions
Primary Topic/Track     
Advising Communities Division (ACD):
Note: Not all proposal content will be related to an Advising Community in the section below. The following tracks are not related to an Advising Community: Student Persistence, Retention, and Academic Skills (PRS) and Prospective Student and the First-Year Experience (PS). If your proposal applies to one of these tracks, you will see "None" as the option to select. Your proposal will be reviewed as a general Concurrent Session.

Please select up to two Advising Communities that best apply to the content of your presentation. If your presentation does not align with an Advising Community or your Track in the section above is not tied to an Advising Community (please see Note section above), select "None".
Keywords: Please enter 1 or 2 Keywords that describe your presentation (maximum of two words per field).
Program Format
Please rank - numerically - the formats you would accept for this presentation. (1 indicates the format you feel most appropriate.) The committee may assign you a different format to ensure a balanced program. Mark only the formats you will accept. (Choosing all formats will not enhance the chances of getting your proposal accepted.)
Lecture or Discussion Format for Concurrent Sessions
A 60-minute presentation by one or more presenters; discussion time for questions and answers is encouraged. The length of time set aside for discussion is at the discretion of the presenters.
Panel Format for Concurrent Session
We encourage institutions to come together with a common issue to form a panel.

A panel will consist of a brief introduction by the panel moderator, followed by a brief presentation from each panelist followed by an interactive question-and-answer period with the audience. The best panel sessions are highly interactive, with panelists representing multiple points of view or perspectives from different institutions.

Panels will be formed by individuals submitting their own teams; panels will not be teamed up by the Conference Committee. All panel sessions are expected to have a moderator for their session.

Panels are expected to represent the views or perspectives of more than one institution.
Poster Presentation
Presented in the form of a bulletin display and delivered primarily through the use of graphics and handout materials. These sessions are most appropriate for display of specific programmatic approaches and research findings. The presenter should expect to make brief remarks, share information, and answer questions about the presentation topic. All poster sessions are presented during a 1-hour poster buffet breakfast.

---- OR ----

Preconference Workshop:2-Hour  3-Hour  4-Hour
Preconference workshops are designed to feature specialized topics in the advising profession. These should be highly participatory sessions that cannot by effectively addressed in another format. Session participation is limited to maximize the opportunity for interaction. All preconference workshops are on Sunday, October 23rd.
(A maximum of 20 preconference workshop proposals will be accepted.)

---- OR ----

Scholarly Paper:
A scholarly paper will address an issue or question that either has been the subject of ongoing discussion/debate among scholars or that perhaps has not been recognized as a salient issue but should be. This paper may argue for a novel position on the issue at hand, or may argue for a familiar position in a novel way. The argument will make use of the methods and epistemologies of one or more academic discipline, and will do so in a way that (in addition to supporting the paper's position) models the academic discipline(s), as applied to advising.

The final manuscript should not exceed 30 double-spaced pages (excluding citations). The papers are to be uploaded into the conference portal no later than Monday, September 19th, 2022. Authors are permitted no more than 15 minutes to present during these multi-paper sessions. Authors who fail to submit their manuscript by the deadline will not be permitted to present at the conference.
As we look at ways to continue providing content both in-person and virtually for the Annual Conference, we may require that all presenters upload a recording of your presentation content. NACADA reserves the right to upload the recording to the conference platform or NACADA's website for use both during and after the conference.  

Would you be willing to present your proposal not only in-person, but also in a virtual format?

Is your proposal based on the results of a survey or interview protocol distributed to NACADA members? NACADA member surveys (written or oral) must be approved PRIOR to submission of a presentation proposal (see survey guidelines HERE).

Failure to secure approval to distribute a survey or to recruit interview participants through NACADA listservs prior to submitting a conference proposal is grounds for cancellation of a proposal/conference session.

Further, if the research study involves collection and reporting of data from human participants, the proposal must indicate that appropriate approval for Human Subjects Research (IRB protocols and/or ethics and compliance in research processes) has been received, or will be, at the time of the conference presentation.

If you have a question, please call the Executive Office (785-532-5717) or email

Proposals being submitted for a PreConference Workshop (PCW) will only be evaluated for a PCW. PCWs are expected to have a lengthier abstract (250 words), a proposal outlining the interaction to take place, and a detailed explanation of materials the attendees will receive. If you would like to be considered for a Concurrent or Poster Session please submit an additional application with a proposal fitting that format.

Click the Okay button to continue submitting a PCW proposal or to change your session format to a Concurrent, Panel, or Poster session.

Scholarly Paper proposals (SP) will only be evaluated for a SP session. SPs are expected to have a proposal outlining the issue or question the paper will address, including a clear description of the methods and epistemologies of one or more academic discipline. The final manuscript must be uploaded by Monday, September 19th, 2022. Applicable only if your paper is accepted. Additional instructions will be provided for uploading the final manuscript. If you would like to be considered for a Concurrent or Poster Session please submit an additional application with a proposal fitting that format.

Click the OKAY button to continue submitting a SP proposal or to change your session format to a Concurrent, Panel, Poster or PreConference Workshop session.
