Call for Proposals

You are invited to share your expertise, insights, and best practices!

We continue to accept proposals on an on-going basis. 

Presenting at the SEMM Forum is a great opportunity to share and learn while also gaining exposure for your work and enhancing your personal profile.

SEMM Forum is Canada’s conference on post-secondary marketing, enrolment management, recruitment, and student success. The program is all about working across silos and bringing together professionals at every stage from student attraction through to graduation.

The program features multiple tracks of workshops on a wide range of topics related to marketing, SEM, recruitment, and retention. For full details about the Forum, please visit the home page.

In addition, for 2018, we will be actively seeking presentations that focus on the unique challenges and opportunities of attracting, recruiting, and engaging diverse groups of students.

Presentations can be lecture style with some Q & A, a combination of presentation and discussion, or facilitated roundtables. Any other suggestions for sharing learning and development are also welcome.

Proposals from a broad range of topics will be considered, including:

  • Strategic enrolment management
  • Student engagement, retention and/or success
  • First-year student experience
  • Marketing and/or branding of post-secondary education
  • Undergraduate student recruitment
  • Graduate student recruitment
  • Non-traditional student recruitment
  • New campus research
  • Academic advising and career transitions
  • International student recruitment
  • Admissions and financial aid
  • Indigenous student recruitment, engagement or services

There is no set deadline for proposal submissions. Proposals will be accepted for review on an on-going basis as we continue to expand the program. The proposal form will be shut down when the program is full and finalized. Please submit your proposal as soon as possible to ensure consideration. You may send any questions you may have to
