Michelle Knight-Manuel is Named Executive Editor of the Teachers College Record

Michelle Knight-Manuel, professor of education at Teachers College of Columbia University in New York City, has been named the new executive editor of the Teachers College Record. The Record is a monthly peer-reviewed journal of research, analysis, and commentary in the field of education. The nation’s oldest journal devoted to education and educational research, it has been published continuously by the College since 1900.

Professor Knight-Manuel is the thirteenth scholar to serve as editor in the journal’s 119-year history. Dr. Knight-Manuel’s research focuses on college readiness and access, immigrant youth’s civic strengths, and culturally relevant teacher preparation and professional development. She is the co-author of College-Ready: Preparing Black and Latina/o Students for Higher Education – A Culturally Relevant Approach (Teachers College Press, 2013).

“The Teachers College Record is one of the crown jewels of our institution – an internationally recognized platform that places the College at the forefront of discussion in education and all the fields that bear upon it,” said Stephanie Rowley, provost, dean and vice president of academic affairs at Teachers College. “Professor Knight-Manuel’s demonstrated record of innovative scholarship, experience in the world of education practitioners and sensitivity and appreciation for the perspectives of multiple constituencies make her the ideal person to build on the traditions of the Record and lead this flagship journal to ever greater prominence into the next decade.”

“I am thrilled by this wonderful opportunity to impact the field and steward the next phase of the Record, which has always been held in such high esteem for advancing new forms of knowledge in new and different ways,” Professor Knight-Manuel said.  “I very much want to create a consultative process that engages both prominent and emerging scholars to think through the forward direction of this journal.”

Dr. Knight-Manuel is a graduate of Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where she majored in French. She holds a master’s degree from the Monterey Institute of International Studies and a Ph.D. in curriculum and teaching from the University of California, Los Angeles.
