The Intersection is the AALHE’s quarterly publication. It features events and news within the Organization and short articles and interviews on the practice of assessment in higher education.

Call for Proposals for Spring Edition of the Intersection

AALHE invites you to submit papers for its quarterly publication, Intersection. The theme for the Spring 2017 Edition will be By Faculty, for Faculty: Discipline-Specific Assessment. 

The goal of this issue is to provide faculty with specific examples of program-level assessment that have produced meaningful data for their respective departments. Articles must be authored or co-authored by faculty.

The due date for submission is March 1, 2017. All inquiries and submissions should be sent to Josie Welsh at

Intersection Submission Guidelines
*       The Intersection generally publishes articles between 700-2100 words.
*       Articles are of general interest to assessment professionals. Editions of the Intersection may focus on specific areas of interest, which will be articulated in the Call for Papers.
*       The emphasis is on readability over technical details, although the use of statistics is not discouraged.
*       APA style should be used for citations.
