Acknowledgement of Faculty Advisers


We would like to acknowledge each of the faculty advisers who worked with the student authors on their articles both before they were submitted for publication in Bridges and during the publication process. These faculty advisers, whose photographs and biographies follow the articles, dedicated time and energy far above their regular teaching responsibilities to guide their mentees in original research and writing. In many cases these articles were originally written as the student’s honors thesis or senior project. Working with advisees on such endeavors is not required for professors. They do this work for select students whose work rises above the normal expectations for undergraduate work. They also model faculty-student collaboration for our learning community. Without the work of the faculty advisers who direct the student toward success, Bridges could not exist.


We want to offer our sincere appreciation and gratitude to the following advisers who worked on articles for Issue 7:
