Conference Focus

As in previous years, the 2015 World Universities Forum (WUF) will feature sessions on a breadth of topics relevant to the university and its possibilities.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia (See Proposal Types) addressing the university through one of the following themes:

Teaching and Learning Research and Knowledge Formation
University Administration The University and the Community
Special Focus for 2015: The Economics of Higher Education

Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community, see Our Focus.

We also offer participation options for those individuals who cannot attend the conference. Authors who wish to submit an article for potential publication in the Universities Journal may submit a Proposal for Article Submission, while all members of the knowledge community with an accepted proposal may submit an online presentation to the knowledge community YouTube channel.

Entering its eighth year, the World Universities Forum travels to the Coastal Georgia Center in beautiful downtown Savannah, Georgia, USA. Established in 1980, the center is operated by Georgia Southern University, in partnership with Armstrong Atlantic State University and Savannah State University. The unique center is a component of the University System of Georgia as well as a unit of the Division of Continuing Education at Georgia Southern University. Founded in 1906, Georgia Southern University is the largest institution for higher education in the southern half of Georgia. The World Universities Forum is proud to work alongside Georgia Southern University faculty in developing a unique and interdisciplinary conference program.
