About PRISM: A Journal of Regional Engagement

The quest for best practices is central to education, and the focus on best practices is typically limited to what happens in the classroom. Colleges and universities, however, have a wide range of activities beyond the classroom. In particular, many institutions of higher learning interact with their surrounding communities and regions. PRISM: A Journal of Regional Engagement is a peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary journal that seeks to discover, share, and promote best practices for such university-region engagement through the creation, application, and integration of knowledge. The editorial board reflects the multi-disciplinary nature of PRISM, being composed of experts in a variety of fields from around the country.

PRISM advances its mission by publishing research articles, case studies and applied research, and reflections in two issues per year. Spring issues originally addressed a particular theme, beginning with our inaugural issue of Spring 2012 “Engaging Appalachia” followed by the 2013 issue “The Current State of Engagement in American Universities” and the 2014 issue “Engaging Underserved Populations”. Beginning in 2015, spring issues joined fall issues in addressing the unifying theme of PRISM as a whole, regional engagement.

PRISM publishes both online and print versions. For print subscription information or with other questions, please contact Joe Gershtenson, editor, at joe.gershtenson@eku.edu.
