Call For Reviewers

Reviewer Applications for 2019 are now closed.  Please email events@cacuss.ca should you have any questions.

As part of our Call for Proposals process, close to 300 educational sessions will be submitted for consideration for inclusion in the 2019 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.

Conference organizers are seeking volunteers to serve as peer reviewers for submissions to the 2019 annual conference to be held in Calgary, AB. from June 16 - 19, 2019. 

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?

CACUSS Members and other student affairs professionals are invited to review conference proposals as peer reviewers.

What is Expected of Reviewers?

Reviewers will receive their assigned proposals by January 14, 2019 and will be expected to complete all assigned reviews during the two-week period between January 14-February 4, 2019.
