I need to return 'm/d/yyyy' for 'Business Date' and 'm/d/yyy 6:30 pm' for 'Time Submitted.  How do I change the values?

SELECT
            managerlog.Check_file_date as 'Business Date',
            managerlog.TimeSubmitted as 'Time Submitted',
            vUser_Info.First_Name as 'First Name',
            vUser_Info.Last_Name as 'Last Name',
            managerlog.Notes as 'Notes'
 
 FROM   ManagerLog ManagerLog INNER JOIN vUser_Info vUser_Info ON ManagerLog.UserID=vUser_Info.UserID

Thanks!

check out the convert() function
            CONVERT(varchar(10), managerlog.Check_file_date, 101) as 'Business Date',
            CONVERT(varchar(20), managerlog.TimeSubmitted as, 101) 'Time Submitted',

Yes, the CONVERT(varchar(10), managerlog.Check_file_date, 101) will you give the right format, however for hh:mm(AM/PM) angels second suggestion won't work. Try something like this:
Convert(varchar(10), managerlog.TimeSubmitted , 101)+' '+Right(Convert(varchar(30), managerlog.TimeSubmitted , 0),7)
