The Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs (JCSHESA) is seeking students interested in joining the Editorial Board for the upcoming 2016-2017 academic year.  


JCSHESA, a student-run, open-access, peer-reviewed journal, provides a venue for international, interdisciplinary scholarship that examines higher education and student affairs through the explicit use of critical frameworks. The journal strives to provide meaningful, intentional, and actionable scholarship that can effect change on and with campus and community, understanding their interdependence and interrelated nature. Manuscripts for this journal include empirical research studies, conceptual papers, book reviews, literature reviews, or papers that highlight critical practice on campuses. Topics relate to equity and social justice in postsecondary education   with an emphasis on challenging systems of oppression and advocating for change.
