Although the COVID-19 pandemic delayed spring publication, and students and faculty had the extra challenge of collaborating remotely, perseverance paid off. The latest issue features topics such as graffiti art and fracking, but content isn’t limited to text-based research. Students can also submit digital creative works such as short documentaries, musical pieces or artwork.

Students are expected to work closely with a faculty mentor in preparing their scholarly submission. If you work with undergraduate students preparing research or creative works for courses, honors theses or independent studies, encourage them to submit their work to the Rowdy Scholar. The journal is accepting submissions through Feb. 12 for its third issue. Students can find submission guidelines on the Rowdy Scholar website and submit work directly using the Student Submission form.

The Rowdy Scholar also encourages MSU Denver faculty members to join the editorial board. Contact for more information on joining the team or email senior editors Mandi A. Schaeffer Fry, Ph.D., or Shelby M. Balik, Ph.D.
