Letter from the Research & Evaluation Network Chair
Jill Adelson
Many thanks to all who attended the R&E business meeting and committee meetings at the 2013 Convention this past November! At the Convention, we continued a lot of important R&E work, which continues to be conducted throughout the year. We are continuing that work and pre- paring for the 2014 Convention. As always, I would like to extend an enormous THANK YOU to all of our offices, committee chairs, and committee members. I will not detail all of the accomplish-ments of our committees, as they have each detailed them in their brief reports in this newsletter. This year, R&E has decided a change in our officer terms. The Chair/Chair-Elect office will continue to be elected through NAGC, and per NAGC guidelines, that term begins on September 1. However, although other new officers will be elected in the summer/early fall, their term will not  begin until the END of the Convention. This allows some time for overlap and transition of officers and also allows officers to see through the work they have been doing throughout the year in prepa-ration for the Convention. On that note, please consider nominating a colleague or yourself to serve as an NAGC officer/committee chair. The Chair Elect nominations are due through NAGC, and after that election is complete, we will send out a call for nominations for all of our positions (which have a 2-year term). More information can be found in the elections section of this newsletter. It is difficult to wrap my head around the fact that this is my last time writing the letter from the Chair for the R&E Network. It has been a great two years, and I have had the opportunity to work with many great people in the Network. For the next newsletter, Megan Foley Nicpon will have transitioned from Chair-Elect to Chair. I have thoroughly enjoyed our partnership as Chair and Chair-Elect the last two years, and I am excited to see where she leads the Network in the upcoming two years. If you have any ideas for the R&E Network, please feel free to email me at  jill.adelson@louisville.edu.

The Research and Evaluation
Graduate Student Committee

The purpose of the survey is to conduct a needs assessment for graduate students in the Network, or possibly all graduate students.
Mid-Career and Beyond Scholars Committee:
 We have gotten feedback from committee members on next steps. We have pulled together an ex-haustive list of senior people and will be setting up brief interviews with folks in an attempt to get a handle on the "why nots" and what might R&E do to "entice" more active and sustained involve-ment.
Awards Committee:
 There were 15 dissertations submitted for the Dissertation Award. All dissertations are currently  being reviewed. The call for submissions for the Graduate Research Gala has been announced (for
