Our editorial and scientific community is grieving. Binghamton Professor Nadia Rubaii, founding co-editor of Gobernar: The Journal of Latin American Public Policy and Governance, has passed away (March 14, 2022).

We all lost an affable friend and an enthusiastic colleague.

Nadia worked intensively and vividly for spreading the boundaries of the field. She was an outstanding leader of the Network of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA) as well as of the Interamerican Network of Public Administration Education (INPAE).

She preached by example the values of the finest human being and a fecund scholar. She was a living example of an academic devoted to improving the world, enhancing diversity, and reducing exclusion.

Her dynamism always inspired us and created an inertia that will continue shaping this Journal.

We shall honor her legacy by following her example of working with passion and vision to improve others' lives.

Nature’s first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf’s a flower;

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf,

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day

Nothing gold can stay.
