Call for Proposals Open for the Upcoming NC WAVE Student Summit!

September 14, 2017

third annual NC WAVE Student Summit (formerly known as the Campus SV/IPV Student Advocates Summit): a one-day summit focusing on students’ work to prevent and respond to sexual and intimate partner violence (SV/IPV) on North Carolina college campuses. The NC WAVE Student Summit is intended to be a space for students to share resources, research, expertise, and lessons learned based on their experiences working to prevent and respond to SV/IPV on their campuses. This FREE summit will take place on November 4th at UNC-Greensboro. We invite both students and non-students to submit workshop proposals based on the following guidelines:

From both student and non-student presenters, we are particularly interested in presentations that speak to the experiences of, and prevention with, historically marginalized groups and other issues of intersectionality.
Additionally, we are particularly interested in proposals within the following topic areas:

o      What prevention efforts have worked or not worked on your campus?

o      What organizations are working on prevention, student advocacy, and evaluation?

o      What gaps do you need to see filled on your campus?

o      How can those gaps be filled — ideas for events, advocacy, activism, policy?

Submit your proposal by September 18, 2017 at 11:59pm (extensions are possible!) by filling out this application:
  Please note that proposal submission does not guarantee workshop acceptance. The WAVE Student Summit Committee will select workshops based on the content of the proposals and their relevance to the theory and practice of student-led SV/IPV prevention and response work. Selected presenters will not receive any monetary compensation; lunch and coffee will be provided the day of the Summit. Proposal authors will be notified of acceptance status via email by October 2, 2017.]]>
