Call For Reviewers


Thank you to everyone who applied!

As part of our Call for Proposals process, close to 300 educational sessions will be submitted for consideration for inclusion in the 2018 conference program.

The Program Committee uses a triple blind process whereby conference proposals are reviewed using a pre-determined criteria for content, approach, organization, and relevancy. Reviewers give constructive and helpful feedback to presenters which helps shape their presentation if accepted. This process is meant to strengthen the quality of conference proposals and the overall educational experience of conference delegates.

ARUCC and CACUSS are seeking volunteers to serve as peer reviewers for submissions to the 2018 annual conference to be held in Charlottetown, PEI from June 17 - 20, 2018. 

Why be a Reviewer?

We rely on the breadth and depth of the expertise of our reviewers to assess the content and quality of conference proposals. We greatly value your participation in shaping the conference program and contributing to the field of Student Affairs. 

Who Can be a Reviewer?

Members of ARUCC, CACUSS and Registrarial and Student Affairs professionals are invited to be conference submission peer reviewers.

What is Expected of Reviewers?

Reviewers will receive their assigned proposals by January 29, 2018 and will be expected to complete all assigned reviews during the two-week period between January 29 - February 12, 2018. We anticipate that each reviewer will be responsible for 5 - 10 anonymous proposals. The anticipated time commitment is 3 - 5 hours.

How do I Conduct a Proposal Review?

Reviewers will assess conference proposals using the Program Review Rubric. A webinar will be hosted in January to support reviewers and a reviewer tip sheet will be provided to answer frequent questions.
