Symposium Application

Gordon College Symposium 2015 Application

All Symposium events will be scheduled between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Exhibits will be displayed from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. in the Ken Olsen Science Center Chairman's Room and Loggia. Sessions are 1 hour in length and include a wide variety of formats, from presentations and panel discussions to interviews, film viewings and more. Applicants may specify a preference to have their session scheduled in the morning or afternoon, but final times will be decided in coordination with all other event requests. Sessions will be assigned a room in the first floor of Ken Olsen Science Center unless significant reasons require otherwise. The application deadline is March 25, 2015. Shortly thereafter, applicants will be notified of acceptance based on two guiding criteria: those events 1) most closely aligned with this year's theme and 2) with evidence of collaboration with faculty.
