NASPA Renames Journal to Reflect Gender Focus


A respected educational administrator with more than a decade of experience, Dr. Emmanuel Lalande serves as the vice president for enrollment management at Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina. As part of his commitment to professional development and networking with peers, Dr. Emmanuel Lalande maintains membership in the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA).

NASPA recently put together a task force to look at the breadth of topics covered in its peer-reviewed journal - specifically whether or not the contents adequately tackled issues of gender. After taking a careful look at the content, the NASPA board decided that the journal should receive a new title to reflect the broader scope of its mission. The publication will now be called the Journal of Women and Gender in Higher Education, starting in January 2019. 

The journal’s expanded focus will delve deeply into the systemic obstacles that continue to plague all aspects of education, from the student level to faculty, staff, and administrative environments. The peer-reviewed research in the journal will serve as a bellwether for existing knowledge and emergent findings concerning these issues.
