“Feasibility Study of Bioretention Cells” ENGL 415: Written Communications for Engineers Course instructor: Marcella Reekie, instructor in English
Abstract: Busenitz’s report, which is written for a two-fold audience of expert engineers and business executives, outlines the need for storm water mitigation in Manhattan, KS. It focuses on bio retention cells, also known as rain gardens, as an effective solution to alleviate storm water runoff. For the purpose of this project, Busenitz writes as a hypothetical project engineer for the City of Manhattan reporting on a solution for recent floods. It lays out the flood-related problems and presents analysis of the efficiency of bio retention cells as a means to alleviate storm water runoff. Busenitz also includes the cost to design, construct, and maintain bio retention cells, and makes final recommendations and conclusions.

“Adverse Childhood Experiences Lead to Depression” SOCWK 330: Social Research Methods & Analysis Course instructor: Jung Sim Jun, assistant professor of social work
Abstract: This study focuses on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and the link between adulthood depression in the Hispanic culture. The two variables, ACE scores and depression, were evaluated, and the authors examined correlations. Their study hypothesizes that the higher the ACE score an individual has, the more likely they are to experience depression as an adult. The authors focus on Hispanic culture because 1) past studies primarily focus on predominantly white cultures and 2) because individuals need to understand the full impact of their experiences and how better approaches can be created to help them address their potential trauma and mental illness. They further investigate how impactful childhood experiences are on an individual’s adulthood and how it can be helpful for practitioners to better understand their clients.
