History of the Georgia Journal of College Student Affairs

The Georgia Journal was first published in 1985, under the editorship of Tom G. Walter, then a doctoral candidate in the Department of Counseling and Human Development Services at the University of Georgia.  Prior to that time, there was a graduate student publication called Viewpoint, which benefited from financial support from the Georgia College Personnel Association.

However, the official “birth” of the Georgia Journal of College Students Affairs as the GCPA journal was Volume One which was published in 1985.  Several graduate students edited the Journal over the succeeding years.  Dr. Roger B. Winston, Jr., Professor in Counseling & Human Development Services at UGA became Editor in 1997.

The first online version of the Georgia Journal was published in 2002 (Volume 18), under the editorship of Dr. Diane L. Cooper, a faculty member in the same department.

From 2004 through 2007, Dr. Teresa Raetz, Director of Student Affairs for the University of Georgia Gwinnett Campus, was the Editor of the Georgia Journal. 

Dr. Tom G. Walter, Vice President for Student Development & Enrollment Management at Gainesville State College served as Editor of the Georgia Journal of College Student Affairs from Summer 2007-through 2010.

Dr. Kijua McMurtry, Associate Dean of Students & Special Assistant to the President on Diversity of Agnes Scott College transitioned to the role of Editor during 2011.
