Growth, adaptability, and relationships within the changing landscape of IS education

Leonard Michael Jessup, Joseph S. Valacich

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this article commemorating 30 years of the Journal of Information Systems Education, we reflect on our extraordinarily lucky careers together in the academic discipline of information systems. Both our careers and our field have seen continual growth, unrelenting change, and required adaptability. We credit our enduring and strong professional relationship and friendship with each other, the fun we've had with our collaborators (and especially our doctoral students), as well as our ability to adapt, as the keys to whatever positive outcomes we have enjoyed along the way. Given the rate of change in our field over the past 30 years, we are excited to think about what might transpire for us all over the next 30 years.
