The research for the posters was funded in part by the Walker College's Dean's Club. The Dean's Club is an annual giving society designed to benefit our students and faculty while enhancing our academic programs.

Contributions from Dean's Club members provide unrestricted support each year for critical needs in the college such as: student scholarships, travel funds for faculty and students to attend course-related conferences and/or visits to corporations, seed money for new programs or opportunities within the college, and resources to bring guest lecturers, such as leaders in business and government, to the classroom.
