How did you organize the student work display? Programs having recently gone through the accreditation process discuss the strategies and methods used to set up an organized display of student work.

Programs are encouraged to share photos of their student work display.
The presentation should be approximately 30 minutes in length and include time for questions. If your presentation is selected, you will receive an honorarium of $150. Additionally, presenters may attend all or part of the workshop free of charge.
