THE 2022 THEME
 
This year’s conference, Moving Forward: Bridging the Gap Between Practice, Belonging, and Community, explores the potentials of how we catalyze forward as a society. The 2022 conference will serve as a forum for exploring the innovative possibilities (bridges) for advancing the value prospects of industry practice, reconsolidating and evolving community, and rebuilding and fostering strategic intent based on what the world has learned over the past few years from societal impacts incurred. We will examine these areas through the lenses of research and innovative practices contained within the fields of education and technology, diversity and inclusion, and leadership and organizational change. As in previous years, the RSE-Research and Scholarship Enterprise and the College of Doctoral Studies seek to enlighten communities through the efforts of a research perspective that amplifies practice-based potentials in applying theory to real-time issues.
