The Contemporary Issue Committee is looking for case study authors! In this new competition, professionals in the GLACUHO region have the opportunity to submit case studies for the graduate, entry-level, and mid-level case study competition. The winning submissions will be used during the 2017 GLACUHO Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana!

A case study is a unique professional development opportunity. Participants pair up with a partner (or we can assist them in finding a partner) and are given a scenario to work through and present to a panel of experienced professionals. All participants receive the case for preparation of defense prior to arriving at the conference. At the conference, pairs have five minutes to present to a judging panel and five minutes for questions from the judges. 

The case study topic is determined by the contemporary issue. This year, the contemporary issue is Student Advocacy: Helping Support Student with Dissenting Behaviors. Through this contemporary issue, we are seeking to explore the complexities of advocating with/for students who may not have a voice or be represented. We want to encourage professionals to think about different forms of dissenting behaviors, and how we can support students who may or may not have values similar to our own. 

We hope that you will consider submitting a case study prompt! As you are writing your prompt, please remember to include relevant facts about the setting, details about the involved parties, an overview of the situation, information about available resources (if any), and background information that may impact the situation. Your prompt(s) should be no more than 750 words. You should also submit 3-5 discussion questions for participants to consider. A well-written case study will challenge participants to explore multiple possible solutions and reflect on the implications of these options.

Submissions are due by June 30th, 2017 and can be submitted via the following form: If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Lindsay Seitz at or Rebecca Richards at

We believe case students are a valuable learning experience, and we appreciate your help in making this a great experience for all involved!
