Dawn R. Johnson, Associate Professor in the Syracuse University School of Education’s Department of Higher Education, has joined the Journal of Higher Education as an associate editor for a three-year term.
An expert in campus climate issues—particularly for students of color in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs—Johnson joins colleagues from the universities of Georgia, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Southern Methodist, Utah, and Virginia on JHE’s editorial board.
A leading journal of post-secondary studies, JHE was founded in 1930. Its current editor-in-chief is Stephen John Quaye of The Ohio State University. JHE publishes an array of empirical, theoretically grounded work addressing the main functions of higher education and the role of the university in society. The current issue—volume 93 (2022)—features articles on university memorials, black engineering faculty, minority veterans, and the outcomes of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students in Ohio.
