Special Issues have always been an important focus of Advances. As one of my last projects as editor-in-chief, I arranged for three special issues on topics that I felt were highly relevant to engineering educators. The first of these – “Overcoming Challenges to Infusing Ethics into the Engineering Curricula” was guest edited by Rosalyn Berne, Sarah Pfatteicher and Sharon Jones and published in October 2020. The second – “Worldwide Leading Innovative Engineering Education Programs” was guest edited by Rebecca Bates, Amitava ‘Babi’ Mitra and Jessica Townsend and published in August 2021. This issue on “Programs that Make an Impact” has been carefully guest edited by Khanjan Mehta.
