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 senior project, capstone paper, or honors thesis. 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 9:
