In memoriam: Tracey Bretag (1962–2020)
International Journal for Educational Integrity volume 16, Article number: 10 (2020)
It is with great sadness that we share the news of the death of Dr. Tracey Bretag, who passed away on October 7, 2020 at the age of 58. Dr. Tracey Bretag co-founded the International Journal for Educational Integrity in 2006, with Helen Marsden (now Helen Titchener), sharing co-editorship with her for several issues before assuming the role of Editor-in-Chief. Dr. Bretag developed a global community of educational integrity scholars through her work with the journal, her robust research program, numerous conference presentations and keynotes, supervision of graduate students, as well as her advocacy and policy work. Dr. Tracey Bretag will be remembered for her inspiration, energy, and unwavering commitment to ethics and integrity in educational contexts.
Dr. Tracey Bretag was not only a committed editor and outstanding researcher, she mentored many of the contributors to the journal over the past 15 years, encouraging them to develop their research, writing, and advocacy skills. She will be deeply missed. We extend our deepest sympathies and thoughts to her family.
