Research on the concept of meritocracy and its role in college admissions is the major focus of this article. It explores the factors that contribute to the gatekeeping process and provides a historical context that led to the evolution of today's admission protocol. It focuses specifically on the strict meritocratic practices of many colleges as they continue to preserve the longstanding and deeply rooted admission traditions. The authors provide a discussion about options for reforming the system, along with recommendations and topics that require additional research and exploration.

An Analysis Of Desegregation Policy And Disparities In Faculty Salary And Workload At An Historically Black And Predominantly White Institutions In Maryland, Robert T. Palmer, Kimberly A. Griffin

Robert T. Palmer, PhD

Although ambiguity exists regarding how states must respond to the mandates of Fordice to dismantle dual systems of education in previously segregated states, several scholars note Fordice should manifest itself in the enhancement of public Black colleges. Responding to Fordice, the state of Maryland entered into an agreement with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) to make its Black colleges comparable with their White counterparts. While Maryland claims that it has satisfied its agreement with OCR, findings of this study challenge this assertion. Data from AAUP, University System of Maryland [USM], and the Morgan State Office of Institutional research show ...

In Their Own Words: Sophomore College Men Describe Attitude And Behavior Changes Resulting From A Rape Prevention Program Two Years After Their Participation., John D. Foubert, Eric Godin, Jerry Tatum

John D. Foubert

The study conducted involved assessing students from a Southeastern public university during two academic years, after their participation in an all-male sexual assault peer education program. The study findings revealed that 79% of 184 college men reported attitude change, behavior change, or both. Furthermore, a multistage inductive analysis revealed that after seeing The Men’s Program, men intervened to prevent rapes from happening. Participants also modified their behavior to avoid committing sexual assault when they or a potential partner were under the influence of alcohol. Implications for future research were discussed.

Effects Of A Rape Awareness Program On College Women: Increasing Bystander Efficacy And Willingness To Intervene., John D. Foubert, Jennifer Langhinrichsen-Rohling

John D. Foubert

An experimental study evaluated the efficacy of a sexual assault riskr eduction program on 279 college women that focused on learning characteristics of male perpetrators and teaching bystander intervention techniques. After seeing The Women’s Program, participants reported significantly greater bystander efficacy and significantly greater willingness to help than before seeing the program. Participants outperformed a control group. Rape myth acceptance also declined among program participants. Implications for rape awareness programming are discussed.

First-Year Male Students’ Perceptions Of A Rape Prevention Program Seven Months After Their Participation: Attitude And Behavior Changes., John D. Foubert, Jerry Tatum, Eric Godin

John D. Foubert

Seven months after seeing The Men’s Program, a commonly used rape prevention program, 248 first-year college men responded to four openended questions concerning whether or not the program impacted their attitudes or behavior, particularly regarding alcohol related sexual assault. Two thirds of participants reported either attitude or behavior change during the preceding academic year due to the program’s effects or that the program reinforced their current beliefs, with many describing specific incidents of either intervening to prevent a rape, or stopping themselves from engaging in risky behavior.


College Men’S Experiences As Men: Findings And Implications From Two Grounded Theory Studies, Frank Harris III, Keith E. Edwards 2009 San Diego State University

College Men’S Experiences As Men: Findings And Implications From Two Grounded Theory Studies, Frank Harris Iii, Keith E. Edwards

Frank Harris III

Problematic behavioral issues involving men have been well documented in the published discourse on college men and masculinities. Yet, empirical explanations as to why these issues persist and what educators can do to address them are largely absent from this discourse. Shared findings that emerged from two grounded theory studies of college men’s gender identity development are presented in this article. Based on these findings, recommendations for supporting college men’s gender identity development are offered.


College Men’S Conceptualizations Of Masculinities And Contextual Influences: Toward A Conceptual Model, Frank Harris 2009 San Diego State University

College Men’S Conceptualizations Of Masculinities And Contextual Influences: Toward A Conceptual Model, Frank Harris

Frank Harris III

Based on a grounded theory study involving 68 male undergraduates, a conceptual model of the meanings college men ascribe to masculinities is proposed in this article. The participants equated masculinities with “being respected,” “being confident and self-assured,” “assuming responsibility,” and “embodying physical prowess.” Contextual factors that influenced these meanings are also reflected in the model. Using the model as a guiding framework, recommendations for supporting the gender identity development of college men and implications for future studies of masculinities in college contexts are offered.


Finding Congruence, Finding Meaning: Value Intersections And Transforming Relationships Among Faculty And Staff At A Religious College, Christy M. Craft, Alyssa N. Bryant 2009 Kansas State University

Finding Congruence, Finding Meaning: Value Intersections And Transforming Relationships Among Faculty And Staff At A Religious College, Christy M. Craft, Alyssa N. Bryant

Christy Moran Craft

This case study explored how faculty and staff derived meaning from their work within a religious college environment. The findings suggest that the meaning-making process was fostered by connection. Many staff and faculty found meaning in their work as they experienced correspondence between work and personal values, the mission and values of the institution, and/or global democratic values. Furthermore, transforming relationships that were personally affirming and enabled faculty and staff to make a difference and observe transformation in others' lives were instrumental in providing a conduit for meaningful connection.

The Challenge And Promise Of Pluralism: Dimensions Of Spiritual Climate And Diversity At A Lutheran College, Alyssa N. Bryant, Christy M. Craft

Christy Moran Craft

This qualitative case study sought to explicate relevant features of the spiritual climate at one liberal arts religious college and also highlight the diverse ways in which students, faculty, and staff identities shaped the experience of climate. The findings revealed that the spiritual climate of Lutheran College was a product of diverse and voluntary spiritual expressions, the struggle to balance the institution's denominational heritage with commitment to diversity, and community fragmentation brought on by conflicting ideologies. Moreover, minority narratives suggested that spiritual climate is not a singular, absolute reality, but is perceived and experienced in ways that depend on ...

Reframing Student Affairs Practice, Rishi R. Sriram, Jesse Hines 2009 Baylor University

Reframing Student Affairs Practice, Rishi R. Sriram, Jesse Hines

Rishi Sriram, Ph.D.

The interdisciplinary nature of student affairs requires the integration and application of theories pertaining to higher education, management, and psychology. Each discipline offers a theory that can be synthesized by utilizing Bolman and Deal’s (2008) four frames. By thinking of their work environments in circles, student affairs managers and leaders can utilize a proposed model to help them know how to begin applying each of the four frames in practice.

Another Strategy Toward Retention: Using Counseling Techniques To Help Black Faculty Succeed In The Academy, Robert T. Palmer, Phd, Sharon L. Holmes,Phd

Robert T. Palmer, PhD

Retaining African American faculty at predominantly white institutions (PWIs) remains an issue of focus and concern. While researchers have investigated the institutional climate, mentorship, and social capital and their relationship with fostering a supportive campus environment for African American faculty, a dearth of research has used the counseling literature to discuss coping strategies that African American faculty can use to enhance their experiences and increase their success. The purpose of this essay is to focus on the relationship between cognitive interpretation and emotional and behavioral outcomes through rationale emotive behavioral therapy (REBT), the positive self-talk of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT ...

Investigating Black Students’ Disinclination To Consider And Attend Historically Black Colleges And Universities (Hbcus)., Robert T. Palmer, Phd, Dina C. Maramba,Phd, John M. Lee, Phd

Robert T. Palmer, PhD

Research on historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) has documented the positive impact of these institutions on Black students. Such research has shown that Blacks experience positive academic and social outcomes and a disproportionate number of students who graduate from HBCUs attend graduate or professional schools. Notwithstanding, over the years, there has been an increase in the number of Blacks attending predominantly White institutions (PWIs) over HBCUs. While research has provided insight into the reasons Black students attend HBCUs and PWIs, limited empirical research has documented their rationale for not considering and attending HBCUs. To this end, this qualitative study ...
