All members of the University community -- faculty, staff, and students -- are welcomed and encouraged to submit proposals that highlight FSU's curricular, co-curricular, and other programs and initiatives that address the specific theme and overall focus of the conference.  The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning will provide travel support for at least 10 faculty to participate in the conference.
