Jackson State University Takes Over the Editing of a National Student Affairs Journal

NASAP-Logo-UpdateScholars in the executive Ph.D. program in urban higher education at Jackson State University in Mississippi have just published their first issue of the National Association of Student Affairs Professionals Journal. The journal was previously edited by scholars in the department of education and human development at Texas A&M University.

Walter Brown, executive director of the Urban Higher Education program at Jackson State is the managing editor of the journal. He states that “one of the major areas of our higher education program is student affairs. We’ve got students who do research in that particular area to obtain their Ph.D. in urban higher education, so the editorial board of NASAP thought it would be a good fit.

Dr. Brown plans to publish two issues per year. The first issue, published under the auspices of the Jackson State team may be downloaded by clicking here.
