Individual Panelists

ASPBP values contribution from diverse voices. To this end, we will offer panel discussions in both traditional and non-traditional formats.

Selecting from these individual panel nominations, the ASPBP Conference Planning Committee will form panels of 5-6 individuals currently directing, organizing, running or otherwise involved in pathway programs, including as a student or former student. These sessions will allow a panel of experts to answer audience questions about a specific topic. After panelist introductions, a conference moderator will begin asking questions of the panel members before facilitating audience member questions. Each panel session will be designated 50 minutes.

Online submission must include:

  • Panelist Info (Name, Credentials, and Email Address)
  • Affiliated Institution/Organization
  • At least one topic area of experience with description

If this format does not match your submission you may want to consider submitting a presentation under the Programs, Highlights, and Innovations category.

Programs, Highlights, and Innovations

Program, Highlights and Innovations speakers will develop posters to share information and/or updates on their program with the larger ASPBP community. The goal of the Programs, Highlights and Innovations session is to allow ASPBP members to exchange ideas and insight on pathway programming work. Content may include lessons learned related to the program, recruitment strategies, curriculum modifications, JEDI efforts, growth and expansion, etc. As the community surrounding pathway programs and bridges continues to expand, learning what other programs are doing and finding a sense of community in the work of others is incredibly valuable.

Individuals who presented program description presentations at previous ASPBP conferences are welcome to submit in this category if interested in presenting updates or innovations.
