I am truly honored to be selected as the next Editor-in-Chief of Advances in Engineering Education (AEE). I am thankful to Dr. Norman Fortenberry and ASEE for this opportunity to contribute to the engineering education community. I enter this role recognizing and appreciating the hard work of Dr. Larry Shuman, the Founding Editor and prior Editor-in-Chief, who started this journal in 2006 to create a space in the engineering education community to share tried and tested innovations in engineering education. In that spirit, he leaves a solid legacy on which I endeavor to build. With the COVID-19 pandemic, the impacts of George Floyd’s murder, the marginalization of the LGBTQ+ community, and the current national and international landscapes, it is an important time to reflect, plan, and build. In the coming months, we will reassess AEE and consider how it can better serve the engineering education and broader STEM communities.
