GSLS Proposal Information

Target Audience

All program proposals submitted for the Global Student Leadership Summit (GSLS) should be designed for a student audience. Our participants are high achieving and enjoy being challenged. They want to go deep and walk away with tangible skills, action items, or resources to support their on-going learning.

Sessions should focus on Personal Identity, Leadership Identity, or Career Readiness. Global education should be the lens in which all sessions are designed and we ask our students to speak from and engage in all of these conversations with their identities in mind.

Presenter Information

In implementing a Call for Proposals for the 6th Annual GSLS we want to provide the opportunity for professionals who can support our participants growth, personally and professional and help them process how their global experience can support that growth. We are looking for presenters who want to actively engage with student leaders and aid in supporting the next generation in their journeys.

Session Formats

Critical Conversations on Personal Identity

The critical conversations series begins with a group wide foundations session before breaking off into smaller groups to engage in a skill-building session or dialogue around one aspect of personal identity. Sessions should have a minimum of two presenters and are 90 minutes long. Please take into consideration the benefit of having diverse perspectives amongst your facilitators in order to support the many identities participating in this activity.

Workshops are 60 minutes and should be interactive and go beyond the basics. Submission should have a chair and no more than two presenters (one presenter is acceptable).
