School Counseling
Thank you for your interest in contacting us at the Evidence-Based School Counseling Conference (EBSCC).
Often, people are seeking information that is either on the website (e.g. program schedule) or that will be posted to the website when announced (e.g. Request for Proposals). We have included a list of Frequently Asked Questions and their answers below. If none of these addresses your question, please email us at and we will return your email as soon as possible.
When and where is the in-person conference?

The 2023 conference will be held at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio on March 11th and 12th, preceded by a Research day on March 10th.

Where can I find the conference program?

We will release an updated 2023 conference program closer to the conference dates.

How do I register for the conference? Are there group discounts?
Do you accept POs from school districts?

When is the Requests for Proposals (RFP) and how do I submit a session proposal to the EBSCC?

The link to the proposal submission website will be posted August 15 on the Proposals page. Once the RFP window has closed on October 3, 2022, the link will be removed until the following year’s RFP.

What is Research Day? Should I attend?

Please see this sample Research Day schedule to see examples of the workshops offered during the Research Day.

The Research Day is offered to assist those interested in research in building impactful, practical research that contributes to the school counseling profession.

Often, doctoral students and junior faculty in school counselor education find this day particularly empowering in equipping them with the skills needed to conceptualize how to apply their passion areas to create a research agenda and to gain the skills needed to begin fulfilling that research agenda.

Opportunities for mentoring and networking with other researchers and educators are built into the Research Day schedule.

What is included in the online access option?

About 40 pre-recorded, 30 minute sessions, from Evidence Based School Counseling Conference presenters will be available from March 11 - June 11. Two online networking events will be held through Zoom.

Will continuing education credits be available for the online access option?

No, CEs will not be available with the online access option.
