The undergraduate research presented in Issue 11 would not have been possible without the inspiration and encouragement of the following dedicated faculty sponsors:

Christian Smith, Ph.D., Department of English
Holley Tankersley, Ph.D., Department of Politics and Associate Dean, College of Humanities and Fine Arts

In addition, the student authors, editors, and editorial review board members thank the several faculty readers who lent their expertise to helping these writers refine their arguments and polish their drafts for publication.
We must express our appreciation for Caroline P. Smith, University editor in the
Office of University Communication, for her incisive and capable copyediting—as well as for her patience with so many drafts and attachments.
Finally, we welcome new managing editor, longtime board member, and associate professor of chemistry, Kevin McWilliams, and we wish to thank Clayton Whitesides for his service to undergraduate research in this post over the past few issues.
