Call for Faculty and Faculty-Student Presentation Proposals


7th Annual Academic Excellence Days Event


Taking the Lead Together


April 23 & 24, 2013

Natali Performance Center


California University of Pennsylvania faculty members are invited to submit faculty and faculty-student collaboration presentation proposals for this year’s Academic Excellence Days event. [Note: The call for student-only presentation proposals, including posters, will be sent at a later date by the FPDC’s Research and Service and Service-Learning subcommittees. Faculty members should advise their students to watch the announcements for an invitation to present.] 


This year’s theme is “Taking the Lead Together.” Cal U has always provided faculty members and students alike numerous opportunities to achieve excellence in their academic pursuits related to teaching, learning, research, service and service learning, grants, technology, or leadership.  This year’s AED event encourages faculty members and students to take the lead by sharing their academic achievements.


Faculty members are invited to submit proposals for a variety of session formats, including:

  • workshops, individual and group, that encourage “learning through doing”
  • presentations, individual and group, including papers and lectures, with time for discussion
  • panel discussions and roundtables
  • poster presentations on service/service-learning or research projects
  • creative performances, individual and group


Presentations will take place on both days of the event.  Tuesday sessions are 75 minutes in length and Wednesday sessions are 50 minutes in length, following the same schedule as classes. The first sessions will begin at 8 a.m. and the final regular sessions will end by 3:30 p.m. 


To submit a proposal, visit the following website address by midnight, March 17, 2013, to electronically provide the requested information:
