During our three years as editors we experimented with new ideas. Some were suggested by members, and others were developed by us. One idea that received very positive reviews was the Emerging Scholars column. This column was created to highlight individuals who exhibit exceptional academic and leadership potential in advancing our understanding of important social issues and policy implications. We were able to highlight the diversity and creativity of our membership in this column, which was one of our main goals as editors. We hope that we were successful in that endeavor.
As we leave our positions, we are excited to welcome Janice Adelman as the new editor. We leave the newsletter in very capable and enthusiastic hands. We wish her the best!
As always, we have some great columns for you this issue…so enjoy!
