Dear Colleagues,

The editorial team is now seeking submissions from undergraduate, professional and graduate students for the 2015 issue of the VA Engage Journal, an engaged scholarship project of the VA Engage Network. VA Engage is a multi-disciplinary, online journal housed at the University of Richmond and open to all students enrolled in Virginia colleges and universities.

The mission of the VA Engage Journal is to build our collective practical and intellectual capacities for meaningful community engagement by providing a forum in which students enrolled in colleges and universities across Virginia can share and reflect critically on their own community-engaged experiences, and can disseminate knowledge emerging from their engaged practice and research.

The journal invites submissions in three areas of emphasis:

  • Critical Reflections on Engagement
  • Reviews of literature and practice
  • Research studies (qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods)

Any undergraduate or graduate student enrolled full- or part-time in 2014-15 at a two- or four-year college or university in Virginia is eligible to submit an article. Submissions with multiple authors and multi-media submissions are welcome. The VA Engage Journal is published once annually.

The submission deadline for the 2015 issue is June 15, 2015.

Prior issues and submission criteria can be found here:
