Benchmarking University Engagement Conference: Call for Posters

All conference participants are welcome to contribute posters. Posters will be displayed where most of the conference's major social events (e.g., breakfast, lunch and dinner) take place so that all who attend will have an opportunity to see them. We will provide a table and a board on which to tack posters. Staffing of poster displays is not necessary.

Poster Submissions

Poster Content

Posters should address a range of topics related to two aspects of enhancing university relationships with external communities:

  1. Expanding outreach/engagement activity.
  2. Providing more concrete evidence to the public of already expansive involvement and the considerable benefits that such engagement provides.

We encourage those who are developing, or have developed or implemented data collection instruments to display their work.
