MSCHE 2020 Annual Conference: A Revised Call for Proposals

The coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis is impacting higher education institutions in unprecedented ways. Rapid adjustments are being made in real time throughout the nation and the world to deal with the effect of sudden campus closures, the shift to online learning, and continued operational changes. And like its institutions, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) is changing too and finding new ways to support its members at all levels.

Given the current circumstances, MSCHE is reminding institutions of the Call for Proposals for the MSCHE 2020 Annual Conference: Learning from Change and Bringing the Future into Focus to encourage presentations that deal with the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, emergency management, business continuity, and other important topics that can serve others in the region well when we come together on December 2-4, in Philadelphia, PA.

The MSCHE 2020 Annual Conference will highlight innovative and adaptive ideas, practices, and outcomes from member institutions that demonstrate evidence-based institutional change and lessons learned from change that serve to benefit the future of higher education.

A planning group for the MSCHE 2020 Annual Conference intends to extend the deadline for the Call for Proposals and continues to examine all aspects of the conference and potential longer-term impacts that may reach into December.

Call for Poster Sessions: The MSCHE conference planning group has also made the decision to postpone a planned Call for Poster Sessions from undergraduate and graduate students in recognition that their academic lives have been significantly disrupted. A special student rate will be offered to support student attendance at the 2020 Annual Conference, and the Commission hopes to host poster sessions for students at its 2021 Annual Conference instead.
