The Humboldt Journal of Social Relations has issued a Call for Submissions for their Spring 2017 Special Issue: Diversity and Social Justice in Higher Education. This special issue of the Humboldt Journal of Social Relations (HJSR) captures work and experiences in higher education as they relate to changes and challenges around diversifying U.S. college campuses.

These conversations shape the everyday experiences of faculty and staff, and are ultimately linked to student success. Submissions are due on October 31, 2016. All authors are encouraged to collaborate with others inside or outside academia. Interdisciplinary submissions are welcome.
