Professor in the Department of Special Education at the University of Illinois, Stacy began her three-year term as editor on September 15, 2015. As editor, Stacy hopes to accomplish four major goals:

  • Maintain the rigor of the journal;
  • Enhance the visibility and impact of RPSD;
  • Increase focus on individuals with the most severe disabilities; and
  • Mentor doctoral students in reviewing and writing for RPSD.

This summer, Stacy worked with guest editor, Karrie Shogren (The University of Kansas), to publish her first issue of RPSD. Inclusive Schoolwide Transformation: Lessons Learned from SWIFT Knowledge Development Sites (Part 1) is now available online to all TASH members (excluding the Self-Advocate, Family & Supporter membership level). View RPSD Volume 40 Issue 3 and Stacy’s welcome letter.
