From the Executive Editor

I am pleased to present volume 24, issue 2 of the Journal of International Agricultural and Extension Education. This issue includes studies by seasoned and budding scholars in academia as well as practical use and research from the private sector. You will notice some emerging themes but a lot of diversity in this set of articles, and this issue reminds me of the scope and depth of international agricultural and extension education.

This second issue of volume 24 includes 10 feature articles from inquiries across the globe, including Burundi, Haiti, Honduras, Ireland, Morocco, Nepal, Philippines, Uganda, and the United States. The topics include entrepreneurship, career development, advisory networks, 4-H gardening programs, partnerships in post-conflict settings, student exchange programs, decision- making, developing social capital and leadership skills and utilizing competency assessments. I hope you discover this issue as explanatory, thought-provoking, and produced by researchers with application to your interests.

Do not forget to submit your work to the JIAEE for review. The editorial team enjoys the diverse amount of scholarship that is submitted to the journal on a regular basis. Submission guidelines are located at: Please remember that we accept submissions for tools for the profession, book reviews, commentaries, and feature articles. The profession wants to learn how you are working to advance agriculture and extension education.

Next year is the 25th anniversary of our journal, and we will be sending information related to a special issue of the JIAEE to commemorate this milestone.

Have a great rest of the year!
