Call for Proposals


We are now accepting proposals for workshops.
The deadline for submission is:February 8, 2013.



We are seeking workshops that facilitate active participation and discussion. Workshops should include interactive, hands-on and/or discussion activities. Instructors are encouraged to incorporate active learning strategies and to provide handouts for their participants.


If you are interested in presenting at WLS 2013, please complete the workshop proposal submission form.


Proposals can be submitted via e-mail to; fax: 312.413.8393; or campus mail to the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center (M/C 363).




All submitted proposals are reviewed by a committee.

Workshop proposals that are incomplete will not be considered.

Workshops take place during the morning (10:00-12:00) and the afternoon (1:30-3:30) so be sure to indicate which time (if any) you prefer. Although we are unable to guarantee your requested time slot, if your workshop is accepted, we will do our best to accommodate your schedule.


Two hours are slotted for each workshop session. Excluding the few minutes it may take for participants to arrive and settle in, we expect you to use the full time. Please allow a few minutes at the end for your participants to fill out evaluation forms.


Proposals will be posted on the WLRC website on a password-protected page for review by WLS committee members only.
