Published: A tool for assessing just employment in U.S. higher education

Iā€™m delighted to report that the Just Employment Policy Assessment (JEPA) has been published as part of my article in Journal of Education Human Resources, “Development and Application of the Just Employment Policy Assessment in American Higher Education Institutions.” I developed JEPA for use in my own research; the article explains the most recently updated version of the assessment and demonstrates its utility in various institutions (e.g., public/private, 2 year/4-year, enrollment, location, and region). The complete JEPA is included in the article and it can be used to evaluate either a comprehensive just employment policy or a collection of standalone institutional policies. JEPA is accessible to practitioners and researchers with citation/attribution (no financial cost). If you use it, I’d appreciate hearing about your use of JEPA and any feedback you can provide.
