It is a pleasure to welcome you to Volume XII of the SDSU McNair Journal. The Journal provides a forum for the reporting of research activities of talented McNair Scholars at San Diego State University
These Scholars are participating in the McNair Summer Research Program. The range of topics and the depth and quality of the research is impressive. Each article is the culmination of a long process of effort and commitment on the part of the McNair Scholars and their mentors.
Enjoy the journal - and congratulations to all our scholars and their mentors!
