    Member of the Journal of Campus Activities Practice and Scholarship (JCAPS) Advisory Board   The purpose of the Journal of Campus Activities Practice and Scholarship (JCAPS) is to provide a forum for current discourse on issues pertinent to campus activities. JCAPS fills a void found in existing peer-reviewed outlet by providing space for current empirical research, along with other forms of scholarship, related to campus activities. The primary focus of JCAPS is on practice in campus activities, and to that end, each submission will be scrutinized for authors clearly addressing implications for practice, along with directions for further research.   As a national peer-reviewed journal, JCAPS represents a space with an intent to not only advance scholarship in campus activities, but to develop scholars and scholar-practitioners in campus activities. Campus activities practice is specifically defined as work related to student organizations and the training, development and learning of the members and leaders, as well as student organization advising; programming (and issues related to programming such as risk, budgets, inclusion), programming boards, and the effects of programming on students and campuses; and issues of diversity, inclusion, and social justice across student activities practice.   In order to advance scholarship along these themes of student activities practice, JCAPS would seek submissions of the following types: research articles, including examples of application of theory to practice; assessment projects rooted in practice; graduate student research/research in brief; research book reviews; and, reviews of different methodologies.   The Advisory Board will be comprised of five-seven professionals with the following experience:   ·         Individuals with prior experience as editors/associate editors/section editors of other peer reviewed journals, and who also have experience as published scholars. ·         Representatives from the Board, the National Office, and the Research & Scholarship Group, as well as a faculty member from a preparation program. ·         A Professional Intern. (This position is designed to give a campus activities professional without journal experience a chance to be exposed to scholarly activity)
