We are delighted to announce and welcome the following scholars who have joined the editorial board of Spark, NCID's diversity scholarship online magazine.

The board, comprising diversity scholars, plays a critical role in shaping the direction of the publication and working one-on-one with diversity scholars from across the country on their public writing. Spark offers publicly accessible essays grounded in diversity scholarship that positively impact society, with an editorial process that subscribes to feminist and social justice values. It often publishes work by members of the Diversity Scholars Network.
