Call for Proposals – 2020 Pre-College & Youth Outreach Conference



You are invited to submit program proposals for the annual Michigan Pre-College & Youth Outreach Conference to be held ONLINE on November 19-20, 2020. This year’s theme is Gen Z and Beyond: Connecting to Tomorrow’s Youth.

This annual conference rotates among colleges and universities across the state. Representatives from many colleges and universities, as well as K-12 educators and other partners, contribute to its planning. This is a conference for those who wish to improve college attainment among Michigan students and equip them to succeed in our evolving global landscape.

This year, we’re looking to showcase and celebrate how higher education can meet the needs of Generation Z. Other topics to be explored may include: 

    • > Outreach in the time of COVID-19
    • > Lessons learned from transitioning to online programming
    • > Youth Safety
    • > What does K-12 need from Higher Ed
    • > STEAM Outreach
    • > … and more!


This is the first time that our conference has gone online! Our plan is to have presenters record their talk so attendees can watch it in advance, then offer panel Q&As with presenters during the two days of sessions.

Submit your presentation idea today! The deadline for proposals is September 14, 2020.
