Call for Proposals

The Theme for CIRPA-ACPRI 2018 is “TUNING INTO DATA”.

Just like in music where it takes the right combination of words and notes to make a song, in research it takes the right combination of data and analysis to make your data sing.

CIRPA-ACPRI welcomes all submissions relevant to the profession of Institutional Research and Planning (IRP), including proposals from professionals in the field of IRP; from colleagues at provincial, regional and federal agencies, other associations and organizations, as well as from individual scholars with research interests in post-secondary education issues.
