For the October 29-30, 2021 Conference

Due to travel restrictions, the 2021 conference will be ONLINE. 

KSU will be resuming normal operations in Fall 2021. However, we recognize some institutions may still have travel restrictions in place.  Therefore we plan to conduct the entire conference online.  Faculty, staff and presenting students will be required to register and pay a nominal fee.  Attending students must RSVP below, but will not be charged a registration fee.

For conference registration visit the ICWD KSU Mall Conference Registration location.
