Athens, Ga. – Lorilee R. Sandmann has been named the new editor of the University of Georgia’s “Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement.”
A leading scholar in the field of the scholarship of engagement, Sandmann assumed the role Aug. 15 after the retirement of Trish Kalivoda, long-time JHEOE editor and associate vice president of public service and outreach at UGA.
Sandmann is a professor in lifelong education, administration and policy in the College of Education and has been involved throughout her career in major educational and institutional change processes promoting and institutionalizing community engagement. Among her achievements, she was co-director of the Clearinghouse and National Review Board for the Scholarship of Engagement, serves on the National Advisory Panel for Community Engagement of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and is the recipient of 2013 Distinguished Research Award by the International Association for Research on Service Learning and Community Engagement.
“Earnest Boyer, in the inaugural issue of the journal, first wrote about the scholarship of engagement. It is indeed an honor to be leading the JHEOE’s editorial team to continue the strong tradition of being the premier vehicle for new knowledge and critical conversations in the field,” said Sandmann. “One of our goals is to reach an even wider audience around the world and advance the global dialogue about the scholarship of outreach and community engagement.”
The journal will begin accepting new manuscripts for peer review and publication consideration on Sept. 1. All article submissions should be original and unpublished work that contribute new knowledge to the field while aligning with the mission of JHEOE.
