Breaking Down Silos: Teaching For Equity, Diversity, And Inclusion Across Disciplines, Erica E. Hartwell, Kirsten Cole, Sarah K. Donovan, Ruth L. Greene, Stephanie L. Burrell Storms, Theodora Williams

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

The purpose of this paper is to present specific teaching strategies, classroom activities, and service learning assignments that can be adapted across disciplines to meet equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) focused learning objectives. In order to identify promising practices for teaching EDI, this collaboratively authored paper follows the thread of our common strategies, activities, and approaches through our different disciplines and across the different contexts in which we teach. As we wrote together about our common commitment to EDI, the specifics of our disciplines fell into the background as we focused on four core objectives for teaching EDI: awareness, knowledge ...

The Pr Of Csr For The Casino Industry: A Review Of Challenging Corporate Social Responsibility: Lessons For Public Relations From The Casino Industry, Andrew B. Gustafson

UNLV Gaming Research & Review Journal

This is a review of Jessalynn Strauss' recent book, Challenging Corporate Social Responsibility: Lessons for Public Relations from the Casino Industry. Through an analysis of Casino’s CSR practices, Strauss raises some serious concerns about this alignment between CSR and PR, and provides reasons to doubt whether SCR done for strategic bottom line interests rather than purely ethical reasons will consistently accomplish what the casinos set out to achieve.


The Ethical Implications Of Plagiarism And Ghostwriting In An Open Society, Lawrence Ness 2017 Dissertation101 Mentoring Services, LLC

The Ethical Implications Of Plagiarism And Ghostwriting In An Open Society, Lawrence Ness

Lawrence Ness

Plagiarism is the theft of intellectual property. Plagiarism has been a problem in academic settings and appears to be on the increase, now moving into areas including the medical and scientific fields as well as industry, manufacturing, military, and legal briefs. The ethical implications can have serious consequences for organizations, individuals, and society, resulting in harm being done to others in favor of expediency. In this scholarly essay, the authors explore and discuss the ethical implications of plagiarism and the increase of ghostwriting in a free society through the writings of Kant, Popper, Kostenbaum, Plato, Whedbee, and others. The conclusion ...

Assessing The Effects Of Ecotourism On The Developing World: A Galapagos Case Study, Ife Adelona 2017 Fordham University

Assessing The Effects Of Ecotourism On The Developing World: A Galapagos Case Study, Ife Adelona

Student Theses 2015-Present

Over the past decade, ecological tourism in the Galapagos has gained popularity. The local population of people living in the Galapagos is around 30,000; this includes, permanent residents, temporary residents, and immigrants. Tourist visitation within the 5 human inhabited islands is 200,000 people annually. The romantic idea of a pristine natural environment entices humans from across the globe to visit this World Heritage site. However, the growing attraction of this natural landmark has led to resource exploitation and the commodification of natural landscapes. In recent years, the Galapagos has developed its infrastructure in order to sustain the influx ...


A Systems Approach To Revenue Fluctuation In Nonprofit Human Service Organizations, Joshua James Hunter 2017 Abilene Christian University

A Systems Approach To Revenue Fluctuation In Nonprofit Human Service Organizations, Joshua James Hunter

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Nonprofit Human Services Organizations (NPO) are normally considered to do all they can to work toward providing clients with optimal services (Bowman, 2011). What has not been considered is the possibility that NPOs sometimes allocate more revenue toward accumulating profit than toward generating services. This study used IRS 990 Forms of 150 private nonprofits from 2009 to 2010 to investigate whether NPOs did this at the peak of the recent recession, a time when there was a strong need for NPOs to increase their level of services. Results showed revenue increased 56%, services increased 1.4%, profit increased 43%, operating ...


Implications And Effectiveness Of Half-Time Pay For Salaried Employee Overtime, Dillon T. Shellenberger 2017 University of Wyoming

Implications And Effectiveness Of Half-Time Pay For Salaried Employee Overtime, Dillon T. Shellenberger

Honors Theses AY 16/17

Half-time pay is an option for salaried employees to receive as an overtime benefit. Based on a fluctuating workweek schedule, employees with varying hours can be compensated for additional hours worked over 40, through the use of half-time pay. If an employee works less than 40 hours in a week, he/she will still receive the full salary compensation; however, any hours over 40 will receive a wage at half-time of normal pay. My research included examining current policies and analyzing the potentially positive and negative effects of half-time pay for salaried employee overtime. Factors such as retention, fairness, and ...

Pension Fund Strategic Positioning, Evan Giusto 2017 University of Wyoming

Pension Fund Strategic Positioning, Evan Giusto

Honors Theses AY 16/17

Pension funds have struggled in recent years to adapt to the low yield climate driven by low interest rates and volatile markets. As a result, they have struggled to maintain funding to meet their accrued pension liabilities. In order to meet the growing demands of their liabilities, pension funds have migrated away from low-risk assets towards riskier assets, which have changed the investment composition and risk profiles of these funds.

This paper identifies historical pension fund investment allocations and how those have proportionally changed over time. Despite pursuing different and riskier investment vehicles, pension funds continue to struggle to meet ...
