In this issue, JOLE offers five interesting, distinctly different papers about leadership education. Since the first edition last summer, I've received about 30 queries from authors about the appropriateness of topics and I received a dozen manuscript submittals. Of the many queries I hope, and anticipate, that most of the individuals will submit a paper in the next year. Their interest shows that JOLE has identified and is filling a key niche -- at the nexus of leadership and education. This niche is of great interest to many people in many disciplines, from high school and college leadership programming, to community leadership training, to institutional and business training, to military leadership studies.
