Factors Affecting Retention Of Undergraduate Students In Fisheries And Wildlife Programs, Kelly F. Millenbah, Bjorn HK Wolter, Robert A. Montgomery, James W. Schneider 2010 Michigan State University

Factors Affecting Retention Of Undergraduate Students In Fisheries And Wildlife Programs, Kelly F. Millenbah, Bjorn Hk Wolter, Robert A. Montgomery, James W. Schneider

Conference on University Education in Natural Resources

Undergraduate enrollment in agriculture and natural resources‐related programs has steadily declined for the past decade or more. College administrators and faculty struggle to separate the real causes of this decline from the superficial and often mythical factors. How programs should address this decline is of similar concern. Rather than speculate on why students do not pursue a degree in a natural resources field, specifically fisheries and wildlife (FW), we decided to investigate the question of FW student retention from the perspective of the students themselves. Specifically, we wanted to know: (a) Why do students say they chose to leave ...

Faeis: A Resource For Natural Resource Faculty And Institutions, J R. Hunnings, W W. Richardson, M A. Marchant

Conference on University Education in Natural Resources

The Food and Agricultural Education Information System (FAEIS) compiles nationwide higher education data for agriculture, natural resources, family and consumer sciences/human sciences, veterinary medicine and other related disciplines. These data include undergraduate and graduate student enrollment, degrees awarded at all degree levels, placement and faculty numbers and salaries by rank and discipline. FAEIS is used by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in responding to Congressional inquiries to support higher education and related USDA programs. Higher education administrators use FAEIS data in recruiting and benchmarking students and faculty, as well as institutional planning, and regional and national comparisons ...

Developing Leadership For Sustainable Environments: The International, Interdisciplinary Master Of Science ‘Environmental Governance’ (Meg) At The University Of Freiburg, Germany, Michael Pregernig, Margaret Shannon

Conference on University Education in Natural Resources

Sustainable development and accordingly sustainability in the manifold relationships between humans and the environment have become integral rules of conduct in politics, the economy and society. One of the major challenges to the implementation of sustainable development concerns effective governance processes between various stakeholders regarding the wise use of environmental resources within companies, administrations, organizations, and society at large. The international MSc Program ‘Environmental Governance’ (MEG) responds to this special need. Launched at the University of Freiburg, Germany, in 2005, the program’s focus is on facilitating the institutionalization of context‐ effective environmental governance arrangements that combine market, state and ...


Undergraduate Enrollment Trends In Natural Resources At Naufrp Institutions: An Update, Terry L. Sharik, Robert J. Lilieholm 2010 Utah State University

Undergraduate Enrollment Trends In Natural Resources At Naufrp Institutions: An Update, Terry L. Sharik, Robert J. Lilieholm

Conference on University Education in Natural Resources

Undergraduate enrollments in natural resources were analyzed for 30 NAUFRP institutions from around the country, covering the period 1980-2009. Results indicate that the steady downturn in enrollments beginning in the mid 1990s reversed itself in 2003 and continued to increase steadily through the present. Enrollments in the general category of Natural Resources and Environment recently eclipsed those in other more traditional fields of study such as forestry and wildlife and fisheries. Forestry enrollments, which in 1980 constituted nearly half of the total enrollments in all natural resource fields, currently make up less than only about one-fifth of these enrollments. These ...

Real Teaching And Real Learning Vs Narrative Myths About Education, Marshall W. Gregory 2010 Butler University

Real Teaching And Real Learning Vs Narrative Myths About Education, Marshall W. Gregory

Marshall W. Gregory

All real classrooms are saturated in the fictional narratives about education from TV and movies that swirl about thickly and persistently in western culture, yet the influence that these fictions exert on real teachers and real students is seldom examined. This article argues that since these fictional narratives nearly always deal in recycled stereotypes of both students and teachers, and that since they seldom receive critical attention, the influence they exert on real teachers and real students is to mislead, confuse, and impoverish their evaluations of and expectations about the nature of genuine education.

Emerging Adults Perceptions Of Their Education And Life Experience, Alison M. Lafollette, Amber Ottaway, Noor Rosli, Christine Schulz, Linn Visscher, Rebecca Bardwell

Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology Research Exchange Conference

What is meant by a successful education or a well performing school? Most studies assessing the effectiveness of k-12 education look at variables such as graduation rates, standardized test scores and college matriculation. Few studies could be found that looked at post education life outcomes. Yet it is often stated that a public education system is to provide for a well informed electorate or an effective work force. We know that a strong academic foundation leads to better life outcomes, but precisely what is it in that education that contributes to a successful life? Emerging adults between the ages of ...


Racial Conflicts In Schools, Michael J. Martinez 2010 Marquette University

Racial Conflicts In Schools, Michael J. Martinez

Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology Research Exchange Conference

That racially motivated conflicts occur in schools is an indisputable fact that becomes evident upon review of both academic literature and popular media. Events such as the Jena 6 incident (Maxwell & Zehr, 2007), school wide racially motivated riots (latimes.com), and court rulings (theithican.org) are distressing examples that racial barriers are real and potentially dangerous for many students in this country. However, little is written about the nature of racial conflicts, including the actual process school leaders engage in when determining how or even whether to intervene in racial conflicts, and the affect those racial conflicts have on the ...

Librarianship In The 21st Century: Lessons In Leadership, Rob Morrison, Jack Fritts 2010 National-Louis University

Librarianship In The 21st Century: Lessons In Leadership, Rob Morrison, Jack Fritts

Faculty Publications

Many of the challenges librarians face in the 21st century have existed for years and reflect the nature of higher education and society in the United States. One issue the presenters have observed is that librarians, like many educators, react to rapidly changing systems, pressures, economics, and technologies by “balancing” workloads and budgets and not by deeply reflecting on how to change strategies in order to integrate themselves more fully into academic curricula, prove the library’s value to administrators, and develop meaningful services and resources.

In order to thrive and survive, librarians must be proactive at their institutions in ...

Determining Best Practices And Interventions In Special Education, Lucinda S. Spaulding 2010 Liberty University

Determining Best Practices And Interventions In Special Education, Lucinda S. Spaulding

Faculty Publications and Presentations

A current critical issue in special education is no longer the assurance of access but the assurance of intervention effectiveness. Determining which practices and interventions are most effective and efficient for ensuring optimal student achievement is a fundamental concern of special education teachers in this era of accountability. In this discussion I examine three designs commonly used in special education research (experimental research designs, meta-analyses, and narrative research syntheses) and their utility and appropriateness for determining the efficacy of classroom practices and interventions.
