Student Papers

Student Paper Presentations

Inaugurated in 2001, the Student Paper Presentation (SPP) offers graduate students in both masters’ and doctoral programs an opportunity to practice key competencies as scholar-practitioners by writing a well-formulated, publishable paper and submitting it for professional review.

Papers may be written on any OD-related topic, and the range of possibilities is intended to be inclusive. Papers may focus on a review and integration of past streams of theory and research, a new synthesis of familiar theories and research results, reports of new research findings, or a reinterpretation of an existing theory based on newly-emerging perspectives.
