South Shore Journal

Center for Urban and Regional Excellence

Northwest Indiana Quality of Life Council

The South Shore Journal, Northwest Indiana’s open access peer reviewed online journal, has recently been published and is now available for review on the South Shore Journal’s Web site. 

The Journal, co-sponsored by the Northwest Indiana Quality of Life Council and the Indiana University Northwest Center for Urban and Regional Excellence, provides a venue for area scholars to publish their locally relevant research. 

The current theme for this year’s Journal is “Our City, Our World: Urban Spaces in the 21st Century,” which was selected by the current editor, Rochelle Brock, Ph.D., IU Northwest Associate Professor, School of Education; and Executive Director, Urban Teacher Education Program. 

The scholarly and creative work published in the journal represents a broad range of academic disciplines. The topics are inspired by the Quality of Life Council’s regional quality indicator, which includes: a diverse community where residents are treated with equity and dignity; an economically thriving region; a region of opportunity; a region in balance with its environment; a region that facilitates learning and intellectual growth; a healthy community; a region of open neighborhoods; an accessible community; a safe community; a region that appreciates the arts and celebrates life; and a community of engaged and caring citizens. 

The current issue (Volume Four) contains works from the following IU Northwest faculty and students:
