NASPA Renames Its Journal About Women in Higher Education

The National Association of Student Personnel Administrators has announced that it will be renaming its Journal About Women in Higher Education. Starting in January 2019, the journal will be called the Journal of Women and Gender in Higher Education. 

Last fall, NASPA assembled a task force that concluded the journal should broaden its scope to include a more expansive understanding of gender. According to its mission statement, the new journal “publishes scholarship that centers gender-based experiences of students, faculty, and staff while examining oppression, including but not limited to patriarchy, sexism, trans* oppression, and cisnormativity as they intersect with other systems of domination.”

The journal will also now have a more critical focus that will examine “the ways in which gender has been used as a construct to limit opportunities and shape outcomes and experiences” for women and other groups.
