After reviewing feedback from the 2018 conference, attendees indicated that they would like to see more sessions on the following topics: sexual health, sexual assault prevention, evidence-based strategies for prevention, marijuana, and health and wellness for subpopulations (e.g. students of color, LGBTQ+ students, etc.).


If you are thinking of submitting a program, we would ask you to consider the above. Attendees also noted that many of the sessions were lecture style, and we are hoping to include more panels, roundtable discussions, and interactive elements into our sessions for 2019.

Poster Sessions

Our 2018 Meeting of the Minds conference featured several poster sessions displaying research from campuses across the state. Topics included help-seeking behaviors among minority students, effectiveness of Green Dot programs on college health behavior, and a focus group study on sexual health and sexual assault prevention. We would like to invite you to submit a poster on research, or on a program or event from your campus. To submit a proposal for a poster session we ask that you have a title and abstract and that your display fit on an 8'x4' tack board.
