Papers should be devoted to topics of particular interest to two-year and community college faculty, and graduate students who are considering a two-year or community college career path. These include but should not be construed as limited to the following: lower division teaching pedagogy; text and textbook selections including the use of open-access resources; cross-disciplinary initiatives; student demographics and advising; student learning evaluation; program evaluation and program growth initiatives; faculty credentialing and hiring, including concerns for women and minorities, and the status of adjunct faculty; faculty scholarship opportunities; issues dealing with program administration; and topics of general philosophical interest. Co-authored papers are welcome.

Submission deadline for the fall 2020 issue: August 1, 2020

All submissions should be sent electronically to the co-editor of the newsletter, Aaron Champene, at Papers should be attached as Word documents.

All paper submissions should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Papers should be in the range of 1,500 to 3,000 words, including endnotes. Exceptional papers that fall outside this range may be considered, though this is not guaranteed.

  • Papers should be prepared for anonymous review. Papers should contain nothing that identifies either the author(s) or her/his/their institution, including any such references in the endnotes. A separate page with the author’s name, paper title, and full mailing address should also be submitted.

  • Authors are advised to read the APA publishing guidelines available on the APA website. Please pay close attention to all APA formatting restrictions.

All papers will undergo anonymous review and evaluation by an editorial committee comprised of current and past Two-Year College Committee members. This committee will report its findings to the co-editors of the newsletter, and the co-editors will make all publishing decisions based on those anonymously refereed results.
