Inquiry, the journal of the Virginia Community College System, offers the faculty, administration, and staff of the VCCS an important opportunity to publish professionally, to share research and ideas throughout the VCCS, and to engage in broader conversations about issues and concerns that impact higher education and community colleges.
We invite applications for three positions that are now open on the Editorial Board. Editorial Board members provide a voluntary service to the journal in the following areas:
Inquiry editorial board members must be full-time VCCS employee with faculty rank (teaching, professional, or administrative). The position is open to all full-time faculty, however candidates are especially sought who possess an undergraduate or graduate degree in English, journalism, library science, media or communication studies, or a related field. Experience in working with an editorial board or professional academic publication is desirable. Applicants must have the approval of their current dean or vice president to serve.
Members of the Editorial Board will be appointed for a four-year term, with the opportunity to re-apply for the position should they wish to continue. Current appointments will begin in Spring 2017.
Editorial board members are chosen through a competitive selection process overseen by a panel of outstanding educators assembled by the VCCS Office of Professional Development. Finalists should expect a conversational interview with a minimum of three committee members.
