Whiteness and Resistance: Investigating Student Concepts of White Privilege in the Writing Classroom
Of the many identity issues that students face as they enter university writing courses—those of gender, class, age, and race—the issue of white privilege is one that is seldom addressed. In the predominately white Southern university where I teach, African American students make up 26% of the incoming freshman population, reflecting the racial demographics of the state.

Lift Every Voice and Sing: A Gospel Choir Participation Experience and the Persistence of African Am
The majority of our nation‟s academic institutions fall short in their efforts to ensure that African American students successfully persist from admission to graduation.

Therefore, PWIs must explore alternative retention mechanisms that will increase the African American student‟s int
An Examination of the Anxiolytic Effects of Interaction with a Therapy Dog
Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) involves a goal-directed intervention in which an animal is an integral part of the treatment process. The use of AAT is becoming increasingly popular in a variety of fields, including mental health care. Anxiety is one of the primary psychological constructs that has been addressed through the use of AAT in the mental health field.

Trinity of Consciousness: Body, Mind, Soul and Female Identity in the Novels of Gail Godwin
Gail Godwin‘s novels emphasize the forging of the female self/identity. Even Godwin‘s earliest critics stress the ways Godwin consistently chooses to portray female protagonists as complex female characters; as Godwin‘s critics point out, the crafting of female identity becomes central to the analysis and understanding of Godwin‘s ―vision‖ of/for female identity. My analysis of Godwin‘s work extends from and beyond the groundwork laid by earlier critics. I contend that, even as God
University / K – 12 Partnerships: How One University Impacted High School Career Decision-making
Local universities and their surrounding school districts have much to offer one another. How universities and school districts work together to create programmatic change in career decision-making for the high school adolescent is unclear. Utilizing a case study approach, this study examined the relationship that exists between a university and two high schools. This was studied through the lens of career development with regard to high school students. This qualitative case study utilized pe

Journalism, Letters, and Nation: The Newspaper Letters of Samuel Bowles’s Across the Continent (18
Newspaper publisher Samuel Bowles set out on a trip in the early summer of 1865 to see and write about the United States of America. A leading figure in journalism and in political discourses before and after the Civil War, Bowles shared his experiences in a series of thirty-two letters, addressed to the readers of his influential Massachusetts newspaper, the Springfield Republican.
