The 2018–2019 academic year was an excellent one for the WSRC Student-Scholar Partnership (SSP). We had a total of 21 projects filled with 24 students and 21 scholars working together in energetic synergy. Students hailed from 16 different majors and minors, and the knowledge and insight they brought to the work was astounding. Our scholars were WSRC scholars as well as WSRC affiliated faculty. Their passion and curiosity was contagious, and all of our partnerships came upon discoveries and information that furthered their search for knowledge and enhanced mass understanding.
The pursuit of excellence in our work is apparent through the effort and outcomes of our partnerships. To achieve excellence, we have provided: mentoring, collaborative intergenerational working relationships with partners who both benefit from each other’s perceptions and expertise; further insight and inquiry into history, music, arts, literature, science and culture with a final eye towards social justice and gender equality; and a creative outlet for students to pursue their passions and interests in a productive and engaging manner.

History of the SSP Journal (2007-2017)
The SSP created its first academic journal during the 2007-08 academic year. The SSP Journal was a place where information on our work was stored. Our goal was to make this information accessible to others who wished to gain a sense of SSP's mission and see results from the program.
The annual spring journal consisted of writings about the projects of the spring semester, the work involved in each and the impact the projects would have upon completion. Each essay was written by the student and/or scholar of each project, including a few from the previous fall semester.
