Dr. Hatcher is co-editor of the IUPUI Series on Service Learning Research, along with Dr. Robert Bringle. Julie is lead editor of the third book in the series, Research on Student Civic Outcomes (Stylus, 2016), as well as the fourth book, Practical Wisdom for Conducting Research (in process). She created the model for the IUPUI Research Academy that annually attracts and supports 30 scholars from across the country in conducting research on community engagement. She also serves on the national advisory board for the Carnegie Elective Classification for Community Engagement and served as co-chair for the successful Carnegie Reclassification of IUPUI in 2014.

Julie’s retirement will be a loss for IUPUI. However, the roots of her scholarship are situated deeply in our campus, ensuring that the faculty, staff, and students of IUPUI will remain engaged with the community in educationally meaningful, lasting ways that advance the public good. She will also continue her involvement as a Senior Scholar with the IUPUI Research Academy by providing consultation and guidance to continue its evolution and national contribution to the field.
