A student-run, open-access journal, the Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs provides a venue for international, interdisciplinary scholarship that examines higher education and student affairs through the explicit use of critical frameworks. The journal strives to provide meaningful, intentional, and actionable scholarship that can effect change on and with campus and community, understanding their interdependence and interrelated nature. As such, this journal seeks to serve the promotion of justice in “openhanded and generous ways to ensure freedom of inquiry, the pursuit of truth and care for others” (Loyola University Chicago, Mission Statement, Five Characteristics of a Jesuit Education).
The Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs has a vision to:
- Become an internationally-recognized journal focused on issues of social justice in postsecondary education;
- Embody the potential of collaborative efforts across and beyond institutional borders by intentionally dialoguing and formulating solutions to serve the public good;
- Engage with the community and decenter academia as the source of all knowledge; and
- Support scholars, scholar-practitioners, and practitioners through developmental feedback and guidance, including, but not limited to, theoretical/conceptual development, linking theory to practice, writing, and copyediting,
