J. Cherie Strachan co-authored an article appearing in the E-Journal of Public Affairs, which is published by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. The article details efforts to launch the Consortium for Inter-Campus SoTL Research (CIRS) and analyzes data from the Consortium’s first multi-campus research project, the National Survey of Student Leaders (NSSL). The article will be reprinted as a chapter in a forthcoming edited collection on civic engagement across the disciplines, published by the American Political Science Association. A second chapter in the same edited collection recommends best practices for cultivating civic engagement with deliberative pedagogy.

Strachan has also recently been invited to submit a book chapter addressing her work on partisan polarization and political civility for an edited published by the National Institute for Civil Discourse.

So Hee Jeon presented researches with co-authors on the topics of diversity management, organizational ethics, and whistleblowing at the 2016 Annual Conference of American Society for Public Administration.

J. Cherie Strachan has agreed to serve as external thesis adviser for an MA student at The George Washington University Graduate School of Public Management. The master’s project will assess the current levels of professionalization in local political campaigns, a trend first documented and explained in Strachan’s 2003 book, High-Tech Grassroots, The Professionalization of Local Elections.
