New NSEE Publication Just Released!
NSEE Perspectives is a publication of the National Society for Experiential Education
In this special issue of NSEE Perspectives, founder and past President of NSEE, John S. Duley, refines our understanding of the theory and practice of experiential education by addressing two troublesome issues that research in this field has identified: the meaning of “the common good” within service learning and civic engagement; and the absence of the affective domain within David Kolb’s 1984 learning theory. In this, his most recent publication—Notes from the Margins: Achieving Experiential Education’s Full Potential—NSEE pioneer John Duley provides answers to these questions with intelligence, insight and humanity.
John S. Duley is Professor Emeritus at Michigan State University and lifelong educator. For over fifty years, he has been the leading practitioner, thinker, and shaper of the Experiential Education movement in the United States.
NSEE is pleased and honored to present to its members and friends this special issue of NSEE Perspectives. Preface by Dwight E. Giles, Jr.

NSEE Distinguished Scholars and NSEE Distinguished Fellows
In the Summer of 2014, the NSEE Board of Directors established a way to recognize and honor key scholars and leaders in the field of experiential education. As a result, the Distinguished Scholars was created to honor those individuals who have an established history of active leadership in the Society and scholarship in experiential education. In addition, the Distinguished Fellow honorific was also fashioned to recognize NSEE keynoters who by virtue of accepting the national conference keynote address have brought their national/international recognition to bear on the Society and affirm the Society’s leadership in the field of experiential education. NSEE was grateful that five members of this inaugural class of distinguished honorees were able to be present at the Annual Conference in Baltimore in October 2014 to be recognized for their contributions to the history of our Society as well as to a field that has helped transform higher education for 44 years. In order for current and future NSEE members to continue to benefit from the wisdom of these honorees, they have all graciously agreed to share with us, at least once a year, their thought pieces, articles, and musings. We thank them for their continuing interest in transforming learning.
