The theme of the conference is "Thrive in a Brave New World," which provides a broad landscape for researchers to explore research that is currently addressing an array of issues and inquiry around this concept as evidenced through the lens of the three research centers, including leadership and organizational studies, educational and instructional technology, and workplace diversity and inclusion. This year's summit also invites nursing and, healthcare, as well as psychology, into the fold of this inquiry as well.
Who is Eligible to Present?
The summit is open to faculty, staff, alumni, students [doctoral], and external academics.
*Doctoral students are welcomed to utilize their preliminary research from their dissertation for presentation purposes.
Benefits of Participation as a Presenter
We have added digital badging as a way to recognize those who are formally accepted as presenters for the event to be shared via their own social media platforms.
For active faculty, your role as a presenter counts towards your faculty scholarship requirements for teaching.
CV building is an important part of a researcher's authentication in events that demonstrate their own expertise.
Bringing your conference back to the classroom and the research you presented is a way for your students to see that you are staying current in your field.

The list below represents possible areas, but you are certainly not limited to this list as these are simply suggestion primers. Because we, as a society, have learned quite a bit amidst living with issues that have arisen over the two-plus years into the pandemic, the expanse and space for inquiry, empirical research, and theoretical research is quite large. We encourage you to explore the variety of such possibilities within your abstract submission.
