We are so excited to launch Call for Programs for the Meeting of the Minds 2022! We are looking forward to gathering in person this April in Kansas City, MO. This year's format will include one hour breakout sessions, with longer institutes and showcases like we featured in 2022. We look forward to having many different topics in student well-being and behavioral health presented at this premier event!
For Call for Programs this year, we are soliciting presentations on the following topics that can be included in our breakout sessions and in our Showcases (several breakout sessions presented together). If selected, your presentation will be assigned as a singular breakout session or to a showcase on topics such as Peer Education, Violence Prevention, Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention programming, Mental Health, and Health and Well-Being.
What is a Breakout session?
During the conference, we will have several one hour time slots, where attendees will get to choose from a variety of sessions. This is similar to the conference format Partners in Prevention used before the pandemic.
What is a Showcase?
Grouped by a specific topic, such as Peer Education, Programming, Violence Prevention, etc, showcases will allow representatives from campuses and agencies to share about their work along with others doing similar work around that topic. Over a two to four hour period, individual represntatives will give 45-60 minute presentations on their work in succession. For instance, a Peer Education showcase might feature 3-4 campuses sharing about how they use Peer Education as a prevention tool on their campus.
Please contact Joan Masters at MastersJ@missouri.edu with any questions about the Call for Programs process.
We are sorry, we are unable to provide waived registration or hotel for Call for Programs speakers in 2023
Past Meeting of the Minds conferences featured several poster sessions displaying research from campuses across the state. Topics included help-seeking behaviors among minority students, effectiveness of violence prevention 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.
