I am excited to introduce Drs. Jody Clay-Warner, Dawn T. Robinson, and Justine Tinkler as the new editors of Social Psychology Quarterly. I have known all three of these scholars since they were graduate students. All three have been active in the Social Psychology section of the American Sociological Association. As graduate students and throughout their careers, they have absolutely shone by the questions they asked, the answers they proffered, and the enthusiasm they radiated.
