In Memoriam: Dr. Rick Ruddell


Dr. Rick Ruddell

“Our Journal team joins with countless others across Canada and beyond in mourning the recent loss of our friend Dr. Rick Ruddell. Among his many contributions to social science and justice, Rick was a champion of the Journal of CSWB, having authored or co-authored six papers, including one in our inaugural issue in Aug 2016, and his latest this past summer. He has also been one of our most generous reviewers, and an encouraging supporter of other authors along the way."
