Congratulations to WGSS Associate Professor Marla Jaksch! Her book Open Mic Night: Campus Programs that Champion College Student Voice and Engagement (Stylus, 2017), co-authored by Dr. Jaksch, Toby Jenkins, Crystal Endsey, and Anthony Keith, has won the Outstanding Book Recognition Award from the American Educational Research Association.
From the reviews: “Beautifully poetic, creatively academic. This book speaks brilliantly to student voice. Its authors advance the student engagement literature in culturally rich ways. Reading it is a delightfully sensory, yet powerfully instructive experience.” (Shaun R. Harper, Clifford and Betty Allen Professor University of Southern California Rossier School of Education)
