From Surviving To Thriving: How Colleges Can Use The Science Of Positive Psychology To Enhance Student Well-Being, Sharon F. Danzger 2018 University of Pennsylvania

From Surviving To Thriving: How Colleges Can Use The Science Of Positive Psychology To Enhance Student Well-Being, Sharon F. Danzger

Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects

Depression and anxiety have been on the rise on college campuses. Reports indicate that more than a quarter of undergraduate students are suffering from mental health issues (Eisenberg & Ketchen Lipson, 2017). While it is likely that support for mental illness will always be needed, the science of positive psychology offers additional opportunities for improving mental health. Through research-based interventions, it may be possible to reduce symptoms associated with many of the issues facing today’s college students, from depression and anxiety to feelings of not belonging and a lack of resilience. This paper explores the current state of mental health ...

Leveraging The Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (Wioa) To Help Finance College & University Career Centers, Daniel Newell 2018 San Jose State University

Leveraging The Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (Wioa) To Help Finance College & University Career Centers, Daniel Newell

Master's Projects

This research explores whether career services for the adult and dislocated worker populations of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) can be leveraged to provide career services in a college or university setting to serve students and the public while meeting WIOA’s enrollment goals. For colleges and universities without career centers, leveraging WIOA funding may be a solution to increasing career center resources and expanding existing career services, while augmenting program support through federal funding.


Addressing The Lack Of Awareness Regarding The Various Resources To Finance A College Education, Corin Rau 2018 California State University, Monterey Bay

Addressing The Lack Of Awareness Regarding The Various Resources To Finance A College Education, Corin Rau

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

While there are many different resources to assist students with paying for college, some may not understand the different types that are available for them to utilize, be unaware of the requirements that are necessary to be eligible for certain types of funding, or may accept loans that they do not actually know much about. This possible lack of knowledge may lead to financial stress during and after college. The goal of this project was to have the participants meet three learning outcomes: 1) indicate the types of funding they will use to pay for college in the future,, 2 ...


Using Positive Psychology To Bolster Student Success At Gateway Community College, Erik Otto Driessen, Adam Burgoon, Devon Tomasulo, Esther Chewning 2018 University of Pennsylvania

Using Positive Psychology To Bolster Student Success At Gateway Community College, Erik Otto Driessen, Adam Burgoon, Devon Tomasulo, Esther Chewning

Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Service Learning Projects

Supported by a situational analysis and review of positive psychological literature, this paper outlines an application plan to support GateWay Community College’s ‘experiential learning with a purpose' vision which focuses on infusing meaning into students’ career development and learning. This vision was articulated by Kerry Sanderson, Director of Career Services, and Jessica Brosilo, Service Learning Center Coordinator, in the form of three guiding principles for our work: 1) accessing large student populations, 2) developing students' personal meaning and understanding of purpose through career goals, and 3) cultivating a broader view of success beyond career goals. Future-mindedness and self-efficacy emerged ...


Segregation Of Student Financial Aid In Higher Education: The Effects On Low-Income Students When Ebt Is Not Accepted At University Campuses In San Diego, Ca., Tanisha-Jean Martin 2018 University of San Diego

Segregation Of Student Financial Aid In Higher Education: The Effects On Low-Income Students When Ebt Is Not Accepted At University Campuses In San Diego, Ca., Tanisha-Jean Martin

M.A. in Leadership Studies: Capstone Project Papers

The student bodies of universities are made up of a diverse financial class of students which utilize various methods to cover financial obligations on campus, even with the use of welfare governmental assistance. Low-income students that are involved in government welfare programs are given an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card to support them while they are pursuing an education; however, every university in San Diego, CA (and nearly the entire United States), segregate EBT into an unacceptable category and refuse to accept the card at any venues on campus. The EBT card is a plastic card that can be used ...


Optimizing Student Retention: Measurement And Analysis Of Strategies Implemented Within Traditional Bachelor’S In Nursing Programs, Bethanie K. Gamble Dr. 2018 University of Texas at Tyler

Optimizing Student Retention: Measurement And Analysis Of Strategies Implemented Within Traditional Bachelor’S In Nursing Programs, Bethanie K. Gamble Dr.

Nursing Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation is an exploration of strategies that optimize nursing student retention. While college students experience a degree of personal and social challenges toward degree completion, nursing students experience higher incidences of attrition due to the academic rigors, clinical scheduling, and high stresses of nursing programs. While few institutional contributions can address personal and social issues impacting retention, nursing programs have a unique opportunity to develop interventions to strengthen social connections to the academic institution and facilitate early connections to the profession. These professional integration factors are central domains of the Jeffreys’ Nursing Universal Retention and Success (NURS) model and ...

A Note On Self-Authorship: Resolving Pain For A Hopeful Today, Nicole M. Potestivo 2018 University of Vermont

A Note On Self-Authorship: Resolving Pain For A Hopeful Today, Nicole M. Potestivo

The Vermont Connection

A letter to my College Application Process. I hope it is okay that I write you today. It has been a while, 16 years to be exact, but sometimes a while is just how long things take before we are ready to address them. I blamed you for making me feel less-than, like I was not worthy of being someone’s first choice for a long time. It was easy for me to draw that conclusion after years of mediocre academic performances coupled with your initial decision to waitlist me. I explored Marcia Baxter Magolda’s (1999, 2009, 2013) research ...

The Relevance Of Double Consciousness Among Black Males In College, Kevin L. Wright 2018 University of Vermont

The Relevance Of Double Consciousness Among Black Males In College, Kevin L. Wright

The Vermont Connection

“The Souls of Black Folk,” by W. E. B. Du Bois (1903) is a means to explain the experience of the Negro in the late 1800s. Many of the attitudes and perceptions of Black people are still present today. In Du Bois’ work, he discussed his coined term, double consciousness; Du Bois indicated that it is a curse along with a gift, a most unwelcome one. He discussed the racial binary of what a Black person experiences in society compared to White people. The experiences a Black man has in a predominantly White society can mirror the experiences of a ...


Get Out Of That Chair: How Fat Professionals Fit In Student Affairs, J.A. Silvis, A.J. Santos 2018 University of Vermont

Get Out Of That Chair: How Fat Professionals Fit In Student Affairs, J.A. Silvis, A.J. Santos

The Vermont Connection

In the authors’ experiences as fat, queer, people of color, they exist in a student affairs bubble that reminds them that their bodies are abject. They are forced to sort out when is it their sexualities, their skin, or their size that is the reasoning for their silence in higher education. They force themselves to ask, “when is it about just being fat?” while questioning if their fatness can be separated from their brownness and queerness. “Get Out Of That Chair: How Fat Professionals Fit in Student Affairs” creates a dialogue and discussion about how bodies are policed in the ...


Lessons From Women Leaders: The Impact Of Professional Development, Jennifer Wegner 2018 University of Vermont

Lessons From Women Leaders: The Impact Of Professional Development, Jennifer Wegner

The Vermont Connection

Professional development is learner-centered, where the responsibility to engage in further educational experiences belongs to the individual and is a critical way to prepare for career advancement. In higher education, cisgender women do not hold the majority of chief student affairs officers (CSAO) positions, which is unexpected given their representation in entry and mid-level positions (Shea Gasser, 2014). This article reviews a grounded theory study conducted to better understand the phenomenon of professional development experiences of women CSAOs and how professional development impacts career ascension of women in student affairs.

The Ubiquitous Middle: Conceptualizing Mid-Level Experience In Student Affairs, Benjamin Z. Huelskamp 2018 University of Vermont

The Ubiquitous Middle: Conceptualizing Mid-Level Experience In Student Affairs, Benjamin Z. Huelskamp

The Vermont Connection

til very recently, research and writing on mid-level student affairs practitioners focused narrowly on job satisfaction (Scott, 1978; Sagaria, 1986; Bogenschutz and Sagaria, 1988). This article, a scholarly personal narrative, discusses the career track and experiences of mid-level practitioners. The author proposes and discusses suggestions with regard to support for mid-level practitioners and ways of developing our thinking about these positions and professionals.


Where’S My Queer Bbq?: Supporting Queer Students At Historically Women’S Colleges, Sarah D. Dews 2018 University of Vermont

Where’S My Queer Bbq?: Supporting Queer Students At Historically Women’S Colleges, Sarah D. Dews

The Vermont Connection

The experiences of Queer students at institutions of higher education have long been the subject of scholarship. Scholars explored research on campus climate, experience, and identity development. In the past, scholarship on historically women’s institutions explored leadership, history, and sexuality. However, the experiences of Queer students on historically women’s campuses are largely unstudied. As a graduate of a historically women’s institution who identifies as a Queer woman, I will reflect on my own experience of being a Queer student at a women’s college, and identify where Queer students receive the support they need to succeed.
