This volume presents papers from the inaugural conference held at the University of Michigan-Flint campus in April, 2012.
This publication includes a series of scholarly articles representing were composed by undergraduate and graduate students, written with the assistance of a faculty mentor. These manuscripts represent a strong personal commitment of the students and faculty members toward research and creative endeavors.
Manuscript Guidelines: Students’ papers are submitted in Microsoft Word. The text of all manuscripts are no more than 15-20 double-spaced pages, typed in a 10-12 point font size with one-inch margins. The instructions for preparing the manuscript are provided by the event coordinators. “Permission to Publish” and “Faculty Mentor Approval” forms are included with each manuscript. The SRC Committee reviews the submissions for documentation and compliance with manuscript guidelines. The authors are ultimately responsible for the content, information, and any interpretation within the manuscripts.
