Building a More Inclusive Community through Counseling and Career Services

The 7th Annual Counseling and Career Services Conference is coming soon, so we want you to “save the date” of May 2, 2014 in your calendars.  At the present time we are collecting Proposals for Presenters at this conference.  The main theme this year is "INCLUSION."  We would like to collect proposals on a variety of best practices, innovative approaches, challenges and complex issues for unique populations that may find it difficult to assimilate to college/academic life.  Such groups could include veterans, students with disabilities, LGBT students, non-traditional students, students of color, students affected by their socio-economic status (like homeless students). 


If you work with these students (or a group that isn’t mentioned here) and would like to speak about a particular program/issue at this conference, please complete our online proposal submission form and email your resume and short biography to

The deadline for submissions is March 14, 2014.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call me (443- 518-4032) or email me (  Please pass this information on to a colleague.
