NASPA is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Bridget Turner Kelly as Executive Editor of the Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice (JSARP). Her three-year term will begin in July 2017.

With a career in higher education and student affairs spanning more than 16 years, Dr. Kelly has held faculty positions across the United States.

Dr. Kelly’s scholarship focuses on marginalized populations in higher education; specifically, she studies the experiences of students of color at predominantly White campuses, women and faculty of color at research universities, and how all students can become socially just educators.

She is co-editor of the forthcoming book Engaging Images for Research, Pedagogy, and Practice: Utilizing Visual Methods to Understand and Promote College Student Development (Stylus, 2017).

In addition to her own scholarship, Dr. Kelly has actively served as an associate editor for JSARP for the past five years, providing constructive feedback to authors.
