Call for Papers - Special Issue of The School Psychologist -
The Role of the School Psychologist in Postsecondary Education:

Issues and Best Practices:

This special issue invites manuscripts that address the contemporary roles of school psychologists within postsecondary education. With ever increasing college enrollments for at-risk students and new innovations in dual enrollment options for very young students, school psychologists are well positioned to have a positive impact on postsecondary education outcomes. Submissions for this edition that review alignment of current challenges facing college students with best practices for school psychologists delivering services in these institutions are encouraged. Topics may include:

Transitioning and preparing high school students for entry into college

Addressing support services delivery within dual enrollment paradigms

Legal and procedural implications for delivery of disability services within secondary education

Accommodation considerations for online learning platforms and students with disabilities (e.g., reading LD, adaptive technologies)

Psychoeducational services to support students with academic concerns

Mental health service delivery and tiered services on campuses

Prevention and intervention to address campus climate and threats (e.g., racial tensions, sexual assaults, threat assessment)

Improving retention and graduation rates of underrepresented college students (e.g., ethnic minority, first-generation)

Consistent with the mission of The School Psychologist, submission of original research, translational scholarship linking research to practice, and policy implications that improve outcomes for all students are encouraged.

This special issue will be guest-edited by Drs. Michael Sulkowski (University of Arizona) and Diana Joyce-Beaulieu (University of Florida). Submissions are limited to 15 pages, double-spaced, 12pt font. Please contact Drs. Diana Joyce-Beaulieu ( or Michael Sulkowski ( with any questions regarding submissions, or if you are interested in serving as a manuscript reviewer. The expected goal for publication of the special issue is the Fall of 2017.

Manuscripts should be submitted to by March 15, 2017.
