Note from the Editor | Time Changes

March is many different things for me – a mix of more warm weather than cool, the start of spring cleaning (both inside and out), losing an hour of sleep as a tradeoff for an hour more of daylight, and reflecting on where this year has taken me so far. With that said, many of our articles this month highlight where we’ve been and where we’re going while learning a few things along the way.

For instance, our Spotlight wraps up our series on Motivation and Retention Factors in Research Administration with a focus on retention strategies and Carol Volker winds down the CRA Chronicles series. Our Distinguished Faculty Experts had such a great time this month reminiscing about some of the funniest things that were allowable but normally wouldn’t be that we’ve split their column into two, saving some of the fun and laughs for next month.

Our DEI Committee follows up their recent sessions on Microaggression and Workplace Bullying and Terry Campbell features a review of The Emerald Handbook of Research Management and Administration Around the World. Dr. Saiqa Anne Qureshi shares with us a few different recruitment approaches for those looking to hire.

As always, thanks for reading along with us, and be sure to check out the Catalyst each month to continue looking forward to what’s next!
