Brandy R. Maynard, Ph.D., M.S.W., assistant professor at the School of Social Work, has been elected to a three-year term as co-chair of the Campbell Collaboration's (C2) Social Welfare Coordinating Group.
C2 is a voluntary, non-profit international research network that prepares, maintains and disseminates systematic reviews of the effects of interventions in education, crime and justice, social welfare and international development to enhance the evidence base so that policymakers, practitioners and service recipients are better equipped to make informed decisions.
The social welfare group, one of four coordinating groups in C2, is responsible for the production, scientific merit, and relevance of systematic reviews related to social welfare, health and social justice. As co-chair of the social welfare group, Maynard will be responsible for the internal governance of the group, setting policy, plans, and priorities, ensuring quality of reviews, approving titles, protocols, and reviews after recommendations from the Editor, and serving as a representative in the C2 steering group.
Maynard has been involved with C2 since 2008 and has authored two C2 reviews and is a co-author on two additional reviews that are in progress. She currently serves on the editorial board of the Education Coordinating Group and is looking forward to more active involvement and leadership in C2. Maynard's term will begin in November 2014.
