Call for Proposals Open for the Upcoming NC WAVE Student Summit!

Sep 14, 2017

The North Carolina Campus Consortium (a project of NCCASA in partnership with NCCADV)  and WAVE (Working Against Violence for Everyone) Student Planning Committee are thrilled to announce the third annual NC WAVE Student Summit (formerly known as the Campus SV/IPV Student Advocates Summit): a one-day summit focusing on students’ work to prevent and respond to sexual and intimate partner violence (SV/IPV) on North Carolina college campuses.

The NC WAVE Student Summit is intended to be a space for students to share resources, research, expertise, and lessons learned based on their experiences working to prevent and respond to SV/IPV on their campuses. This FREE summit will take place on November 4th at UNC-Greensboro.

We invite both students and non-students to submit workshop proposals based on the following guidelines:

  • Workshops will vary in length and format (roundtable, panel, workshop, short “lightning talk,” etc.). Please propose a topic and your preferred presentation format. The student planning committee may contact you to suggest an alternate format in order to group similar topics and maximize the interactive experience of participants.
  • Proposals should focus on increasing student capacity to prevent and/or respond to sexual and intimate partner violence on campus. While we encourage non-students to propose, we ask that workshops focus on this objective.
  • Proposals for interactive workshops are encouraged.
  • Proposals for workshops that focus on skill development, lessons learned/results, and data-driven informationare encouraged.
From both student and non-student presenters, we are particularly interested in presentations that speak to the experiences of, and prevention with, historically marginalized groups and other issues of intersectionality.

Additionally, we are particularly interested in proposals within the following topic areas:

  • How can anti-SV and anti-IPV student groups collaborate and align with related anti-oppression movements on campus (such as workers’ rights, anti-racism work, university policy change)?
  • What’s happening on your campus?

o      What prevention efforts have worked or not worked on your campus?

o      What organizations are working on prevention, student advocacy, and evaluation?

o      What gaps do you need to see filled on your campus?

o      How can those gaps be filled — ideas for events, advocacy, activism, policy?

  • How can students get programs off the ground on campuses?
  • How can students successfully advocate for campuses to meet the Title IX and Campus SAVE Mandates?
  • How do students and/or student organizations garner support from administrators?
  • How can students measure the effectiveness of our anti-violence work?


Submit your proposal by September 18, 2017 at 11:59pm (extensions are possible!) by filling out this application:


Please note that proposal submission does not guarantee workshop acceptance. The WAVE Student Summit Committee will select workshops based on the content of the proposals and their relevance to the theory and practice of student-led SV/IPV prevention and response work. Selected presenters will not receive any monetary compensation; lunch and coffee will be provided the day of the Summit. Proposal authors will be notified of acceptance status via email by October 2, 2017.
