NDSL Call for Proposals

The New Directions for Student Leadership series explores leadership conceptual and pedagogical topics of interest to high school and college leadership educators. Issues in this series are grounded in scholarship featuring practical applications and good practices in youth and adult leadership education.

Topics proposed for New Directions for Student Leadership need to be accessible for uninformed readers, be based in scholarship, but provide strong applications to practice, and relate to developing leadership (for example, if your topic is on ethics, it needs to be clearly related to leadership). Topics need to appeal to a broad base of leadership educator readers and not focused on niche topics. These leadership educators include high school and pre-college experiences where possible. It is appropriate, however, to propose an issue uniquely targeting the college or high school experience. Usually, issue editors are recognized scholars in the field, have a record of publication, and preferably have some type of editorial experience.
