As 2018 opens, Dr. Bruce Busby will begin service as the Editor of the Journal of Continuing Higher Education (JCHE). "After working with Royce Ann for the past year, I am looking forward to continuing the great work she has done to make JCHE a premiere resource for professionals in higher education," he said of his new role.
Dr. Busby also serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal Committed to Social Change on Race and Ethnicity, which is the journal of the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education (NCORE), and he has previously served as Executive Director of the Association for General & Liberal Studies (AGLS) and the Editor of AGLS Perspectives.
Dr. Busby served as Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Success at Indiana University-Purdue University, Fort Wayne, and Dean of University College and Associate Provost at St. Cloud State University. Since retiring, he has come to thoroughly enjoy spending time traveling, working in interim positions through the Registry for College and University Presidents, and hanging out with his grandsons Rylan (9) and Renner (6) and his granddaughter Aubree (5).
Dr. Belinda Biscoe, Executive Vice President of ACHE said, "Dr. Bruce Busby is an exceptional researcher and higher education administrator. He brings numerous gifts to the position, including having been editor of many journals. He is also an excellent writer, a great thinker, and someone who has spent decades in higher education. He will bring a wealth of knowledge, experiences, and innovative ideas to ACHE's Journal. As you may have noticed at the ACHE Annual Conference, Dr. Busby is open, engaging, and participatory in the learning process. Just as Princess Diana called herself 'The People's Princess,' I believe we will find Dr. Busby to be 'The People's Editor,' focusing on the needs and desires of our members, so please reach out to him with your thoughts and input."
Dr. Busby told us that one of the best ways to connect with him is through the ACHE Annual Conference. "The absolute best interactions occur at the ACHE's Annual Conference--Check out JCHE's Information Session or invite me for a beverage. We are also adding a new link to the ACHE Homepage to make it even easier to connect to the Journal, its Editors, and the Editorial Board. I look forward to seeing everyone in New Port 2018!"
