Impact managing editor Vicki Gaylord will retire in June, having worked at the University of Minnesota’s Institute on Community Integration for nearly 32 years. Since 1988, Impact has featured timely research findings, program profiles, success stories, innovative strategies, and useful information on specific focus areas related to persons with intellectual, developmental, and other disabilities. Unlike so many academic publications, Impact was conceived as a practical publication, offering meaningful and accessible information to educators, community service providers, policymakers, advocates, and persons with disabilities and their families. Under Vicki’s leadership, over 1,500 articles, by more than 1,000 authors from across the U.S and abroad, were written and published in more than 70 issues of Impact. This magazine has without question moved us toward greater inclusion, self-determination, and empowerment of people with disabilities, and for this, we owe Vicki a tremendous debt of gratitude.
