Call For Proposals
FAHE 2018 Request for Proposals
June 14 – 18, 2018
Wilmington, Ohio 45177
We invite you to join with other Friends educators from colleges, universities and study centers globally for an invigorating time together in Ohio, at Wilmington College for our 2018 conference on June 14 – 18, 2018.
As Quaker educators, our practice is informed by a faith that calls us to be transformed and in turn to help transform the world. We are nurturing our students to help make the world a better place. Higher education is rapidly changing due to corporatization of education into an “industry” with its “monetization and technologizing.” We struggle to challenge, change or adjust to his “brave new world” as we hold to our understanding of the purpose of education. Some of us find our fundamental values under assault. How do we find balance and the way forward will be explored at this Friends Association for Higher Education.
We invite proposals for presentations, workshops, and panel discussions that address any concern related to Friends and higher education, but especially on the theme of “Keeping Faithful in a Time of Rapid Change.”
