JACR issue on Collaborative Approaches to Creative Positive Societal Impact

Issue Editors: Melissa G. Bublitz and Laura A. Peracchio

To address the pressing societal problems of our time—poverty, hunger, climate justice, inequity, and others—many new and innovative collaborative relationships will be needed. These can include societal impact partnerships between nonprofits who work to ameliorate societal problems, academics who study these problems, businesses with a social purpose, changemakers, and foundations, philanthropists, and governments who fund the work. In this issue of JACR, we will explore collaborative approaches for creating positive societal impact.
