The Iris Journal of Scholarship is a venue for professional and master’s students to publish accessible academic writing while engaging in the peer-review and publishing process. Led by Peabody College students, the journal aims to connect the education community in scholarship across disciplines, providing interdisciplinary, multifaceted perspectives on local, national, and global issues in education and human development. Through publication, graduate students are empowered to circulate their work among policymakers, academics, professionals, and the public.
