CAC Student Conference

What is the Communication Across the Curriculum Student Conference?

The CAC Student Conference is an academic-style conference, which showcases the exceptional work being completed by Lone Star College-Montgomery students. In line with the mission of Communication Across the Curriculum, students from all disciplines are encouraged to participate either as a presenter or as an audience member.

What can I do to help?

Instructors are encouraged to nominate students who they feel have exceeded expectations in their course or program. The nomination form requires a short description of the project being nominated and how the student(s) went “above and beyond.”

Ideal presentations will:

  • result from or be inspired by work completed in a Lone Star College course or program.
  • be academic in nature and exhibit critical thinking.
  • demonstrate a comprehension of their courses and/or fields of study that exceeds expectations.
  • be modifiable to suit an academic conference setting. This will consist of a 10-minute presentation, with 5-minutes for questions and or discussion.

NOTE: Group presentations are acceptable, but groups must consist of three or fewer students.

Are students rewarded for their participation?

CAC, along with Dr. Lane, will announce the top individual and group presentations. Winners will receive a new Kindle Fire, a $100 Follett book voucher, and will be recognized during the Spring Celebration of Excellence award ceremony!

This years conference will be held on April 17 in the General Academic Bldg., G102.
The deadline for submissions is April 9.

Nominate a student today!
