Exciting News for the Global Journal!

In 2015, I had the very great honor of beginning my work with the Global Journal of Community Psychology Practice as it transitioned to the Community Engagement Institute at Wichita State University in Kansas, USA. It has been a labor of love ever since. Being named editor in 2019 was both humbling and exciting as I began to think about all the things I wanted to do. I will not say that I have had the pleasure of checking off all the things on my list, but I am so grateful for the opportunity, space, and support to try. Now it is time for a new editor to lead the mission, and put their mark on the future. 

As of March 1, 2022, Dr. Olya Glanstman will be the new editor of this amazing publication. Dr. Glantsman received her MA/PhD in Community Psychology from DePaul University in Chicago, IL, USA. She is a Sr. Professional Lecturer in the Psychology Department at DePaul University as well as a Program Co-Director for the Combined BA/MS and MS Programs in Community Psychology, and Coordinator of the Undergraduate Concentration in Community Psychology. Her major areas of interest include cultural diversity, improving academic settings for students and faculty, creating and improving student services, food and housing (in)security on college campuses, and Community Psychology values. She has been an influential and tireless proponent of community practice and has a great desire to contribute meaningfully to practitioners' successes.

Of course, transitions of this nature do not happen overnight. We ask for your grace and patience as we navigate the changes and challenges we will inevitably experience.

Thank you all for your ongoing support!

Be well,
