Reducing Dependence On Big Brother: Higher Education Looks For Innovative Funding Opportunities, Ralph E. McKinney Jr., Lawrence P. Shao, Patrick A. Tissington 2010 Marshall University

Reducing Dependence On Big Brother: Higher Education Looks For Innovative Funding Opportunities, Ralph E. Mckinney Jr., Lawrence P. Shao, Patrick A. Tissington

Management Faculty Research

This paper presents innovative programs that business schools can utilize to reduce dependence on public funds. A review of the literature shows the theoretical and empirical foundation of higher education funding dilemmas. While higher education is moving towards a global ambition, scarcity hinders governments to fully support programs long-term; thus, cost-sharing and cost-shifting measures must occur for higher education to support current programs. In this study, we examine two universities (one U.S. and one UK.) and provide practical summaries of programs that have provided additional funds. We show that diversity of funding sources is essential for survival of higher ...

The Politics Of Higher Education And The Student Presidency, Regina Royan 2010 Eastern Michigan University

The Politics Of Higher Education And The Student Presidency, Regina Royan

Senior Honors Theses

The student body president is an advocate, spokesperson, figurehead and leader. The student presidency is a role that few get to experience and many do not understand. I have found that in my four years involved with student government at Eastern Michigan University and my recent interviews with several other student body presidents across the state that the power associated with an administration can vary greatly, but the nature of the office remains intact. Attempts were made to interview each of the student body presidents at the fifteen state sponsored universities in the state of Michigan. These student body presidents ...

Bibliotherapy For The Inclusive Elementary Classroom, Kate-Lynn Dirks

In my life, music and reading have brought me great joy and escape. To disappear from the world I would read a book, and to deal with stress I would play my piano.

I had worked with students with special needs at my past elementary school and had recently welcomed a baby cousin into my family who was born with severe Cerebral Palsy. I had experienced firsthand the healing power of music with adults and children, and I wanted explore this major ...

Dialogue Journals: A Way To Encourage Emergent Writers, Victoria Isabell

Senior Honors Theses

“Writing is more than just recording; it is the process of developing a story or idea. It allows us to represent our life experiences and claim them as our own while giving them meaning” (Calkins, 1994, p.4). Every student should be given the opportunity to view writing as a way to “represent life experiences.” To give students this experience, teachers must show their students that they see the value in and potential joy of writing.

Vernon Briggs: Real-World Labor Economist, William P. Curington 2010 University of Arkansas

Vernon Briggs: Real-World Labor Economist, William P. Curington

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Vernon Briggs stepped into a wastebasket and launched my career as a labor economist. In the spring of 1969, I was sleepwalking through the undergraduate economics program at the University of Texas and sitting in Dr. Briggs’s labor economics class. He was vigorously making a point when his misstep off the small classroom stage produced a roar of laughter but did not break his train of thought. He woke me up; I thought, “Man, I want to be as passionate about my life’s work as this guy.

Bibliotherapy Use By Welfare Teams In Secondary Colleges, Pam Harvey 2010 Monash University

Bibliotherapy Use By Welfare Teams In Secondary Colleges, Pam Harvey

Australian Journal of Teacher Education

Bibliotherapy – the use of books to heal – is a concept that dates back to the time of the philosopher Aristotle who believed that literature had healing effects and that reading fiction was a way of purging illness. But how is bibliotherapy practiced now in secondary schools? This study investigates bibliotherapy use in a regional Australian city with adolescents who have chronic illness. It explores the responses of members of welfare teams (welfare co-ordinators, school nurses and teacher-librarians) within secondary schools to questions on how books are used with students experiencing issues. Findings indicate that although bibliotherapy practice is not a ...
