Using Nonprofits As For-Profit Student Training Grounds, Louis George, Tara Sabhapathy 2010 Fort Hays State University

Using Nonprofits As For-Profit Student Training Grounds, Louis George, Tara Sabhapathy

Academic Leadership: The Online Journal

Students can develop important management skills by requiring them to work in non-profits as a component of their curriculum. What they can learn will be information usually not found in textbooks because this type of organization focuses on a mission that blends the desire for long term success with the desire to serve special groups of people in need. The fascinating mix of social consciousness with any of a variety of business models creates dynamic environments that produce unusual situations not found in for-profit businesses. Exposure to these situations and occurrences can teach students management responsiveness, adaptability, and critical analysis ...


Work Motivation Of Teachers : Relationship With Transformational And Transactional Leadership Behavior Of College Principals, Uma Devi, R.S. Mani 2010 Fort Hays State University

Work Motivation Of Teachers : Relationship With Transformational And Transactional Leadership Behavior Of College Principals, Uma Devi, R.S. Mani

Academic Leadership: The Online Journal

The strength of an educational system largely depends upon the quality of its teachers. It is a teacher who helps to transform an individual into a person of imagination, wisdom, human love and enlightenment, and institutions into lampposts of posterity, and the country into a learning society. The National Policy on Education (1986) has rightly remarked “The status of the teacher reflects the sociocultural ethos of a society; It is in this context that today a teacher occupies a unique and significant place in any society.

Crossing Boundaries Creating Community College Partnerships To Promote Educational Transitions, Marilyn J. Amey, Pamela L. Eddy, Timothy G. Campbell

Articles

Community college partnerships with institutions in other educational sectors (including schools and universities) are important and strategic ways of meeting the educational needs of college constituents and maximizing resources to achieve local and state economic development goals. Understanding what is required for effective partnerships is important in determining when and how to engage in these collaborative, but sometimes costly, arrangements. This article presents a model of partnership development that emphasizes the role of social and organizational capital in the formation of partnership capital that contributes to the long-term success of collaborative efforts.


Leaders As Linchpins For Framing Meaning, Pamela L. Eddy 2010 College of William & Mary

Leaders As Linchpins For Framing Meaning, Pamela L. Eddy

Articles

Community college leaders serve as linchpins for framing meaning on campus. The current pressures on institutions (given declining financial resources, demands for accountability, changing faculty ranks, and societal need for new knowledge) require presidents to juggle multiple priorities while presenting a cohesive message to campus constituents. This study examined how the presidents at nine community colleges communicated with college constituents and framed the meaning of those communications to help the college community make sense of ongoing change. Interviews with the presidents, as well as with key administrators, faculty members, and staff members, revealed that the presidents used emissaries to disseminate ...


Overcoming Adversity: Resilience Development Strategies For Educational Leaders, Tod Allen Farmer 2010 Tarleton University

Overcoming Adversity: Resilience Development Strategies For Educational Leaders, Tod Allen Farmer

Georgia Educational Researcher

School leadership has never been easy. However, some experts like Garcia (2005) wrote that current school leaders are facing a variety of difficulties that make sustaining school reform efforts exceedingly difficult. Collectively, these modern day challenges have the capacity to form the perfect storm. School leaders need effective strategies to cope with these difficult circumstances and to continue the thrust toward school reform. Effective coping mechanisms and resiliency development strategies that can be used by educational leaders to overcome adversity include a routine of exercise and healthy diet, a positive life view, a sustained focus on building bridges between stakeholders ...

A Transnational Approach To Educational Leadership Capacity Building: A Case Study Of The Masters Of Education Programme At Notre Dame Institute Of Education, Karachi, Pakistan, Sukaina Rizvi

Theses

The expansion of educational opportunities internationally provides major prospects for developing countries to reform their education systems. The rise of new forms of transnational education, (the provision of education to learners in a country different from that of the provider) and the expansion of capacity building opportunities have helped developing nations to increase domestic access to international education and to enhance the quality of their local education systems through increasing the variety and relevance of their programmes. Pakistan, being a developing nation, faces huge educational challenges due to its highly rigid and bureaucratic system of education. It also faces a ...

Chinese Women Developing Leadership: Case Studies In Higher Education, Susan R. Madsen

Susan R. Madsen

Organizational leaders in various sectors (public, private, and social) across the globe often acknowledge the importance of preparing both men and women for strong, competent leadership. To assist these organizations, researchers (e.g., Bass, 1990; Bennis, 1989) have been conducting leadership studies for decades in various disciplines (e.g., education, management, psychology) to better understand this complex phenomenon. Kowske and Anthony (2007), Ardichvili and Manderscheid (2008), and Madsen (2009) have also highlighted the importance of studying leadership development within the human resource development (HRD) arena in the U.S. and beyond. Yet, studies in these disciplines on developing women leaders ...

U.S. News & World Report College Rankings: Modeling Institutional Effects On Organizational Reputation, Michael N. Bastedo, Nicholas A. Bowman 2010 University of Michigan-Ann Arbor

U.S. News & World Report College Rankings: Modeling Institutional Effects On Organizational Reputation, Michael N. Bastedo, Nicholas A. Bowman

Department of Educational Policy and Leadership Studies Publications

Processes of certification and evaluation are some of the most powerful institutional forces in organizational fields, and in the higher education field, rankings are a primary factor in assessing organizational performance. This article explores the institutional effects of the U.S. News & World Report undergraduate rankings on the reputational assessments made by senior administrators at peer universities and liberal arts colleges. In the estimation of structural equation models, we found that published college rankings have a significant impact on future peer assessments, independent of changes in organizational quality and performance and even of prior peer assessments of reputation.
