Student Misconduct At Private Colleges And Universities: A Roadmap For "Fundamental Fairness" In Disciplinary Proceedings, Lisa Tenerowicz May 2001

Student Misconduct At Private Colleges And Universities: A Roadmap For "Fundamental Fairness" In Disciplinary Proceedings, Lisa Tenerowicz

Boston College Law Review

When called upon to review the disciplinary procedures of private colleges and universities, courts have struggled to find a legal theory upon which to base their reviews. Much of this struggle can be attributed to the fact that, because the relationship between a student and a university is unique, it is difficult to find an appropriate doctrinal category. This Note analyzes the methods by which courts have reviewed challenges to disciplinary proceedings in private colleges and universities. Specifically, it examines the approaches taken by courts that have reviewed private school disciplinary procedures, paying particular attention to what these courts have ...

Native American College Students: A Population That Can No Longer Be Ignored, Deanne H. Maxwell Jan 2001

Native American College Students: A Population That Can No Longer Be Ignored, Deanne H. Maxwell

The Vermont Connection

Native Americans have the highest college drop out rate of any ethnic minority (Reddy, 1993). This paper addresses the unique challenges that Native American college students face, including suppressing familial and spiritual beliefs, having financial disadvantages, coping with existing stereotypes, receiving insufficient secondary education, and finding no one on campus with whom to identify. According to Brown and Robinson Kurpius (1997), “A common element of successful Native American drop out prevention programs is that at least one adult establishes a relationship of trust with each youth” (p. 5). In the spirit of the above-mentioned quote, this paper also addresses the ...

The Role Of Student Affairs Professionals Within Intercollegiate Athletics Administration, Joslyn P. Diramio Jan 2001

The Role Of Student Affairs Professionals Within Intercollegiate Athletics Administration, Joslyn P. Diramio

The Vermont Connection

This paper explores the connection between student affairs practice and the administration of intercollegiate athletics. Student-athletes are a special population of students with unique developmental needs. As experts in student development, student affairs professionals can provide an invaluable service to student-athletes as advocates of learning and personal development. By examining the founding documents of the student affairs profession and the principles of good practice in student affairs, recommendations are made for the integration of student affairs professionals into university athletics departments.


White Privilege And Its Influence On The College Campus, Darcy L. Lemaire Jan 2001

White Privilege And Its Influence On The College Campus, Darcy L. Lemaire

The Vermont Connection

The article explores the topic of White privilege from the author’s perspective as a White, Catholic, middle-class, rural Southern Vermont woman. White privilege affects every aspect of the college campus, from academics to residence life. Within the context of this understanding, White student affairs professionals can better understand the reality of White privilege, including the loss to Whites that results from its prevalence in society and on our campuses, and work to combat racism more successfully.


Under-Developed And Over-Involved: Unpacking Hidden Realities In Student Leadership Development, Chris Mcgrath Jan 2001

Under-Developed And Over-Involved: Unpacking Hidden Realities In Student Leadership Development, Chris Mcgrath

The Vermont Connection

While studies show that curricular and co-curricular involvement positively impact student development (Astin, 1993; Kuh, Schuh, Whitt, Andreas, Lyons, Strange, Krehbiel & MacKay, 1991), student affairs professionals must grow increasingly cognizant of the potentially negative effects of over-involvement on the college experience. This qualitative study explores the impact of co-curricular over-involvement on student development, and how professionals create meaning when faced with the challenge of over-involvement.


Negotiating The Politics Of Race Through Moral Cross-Cultural Conversation, Jacob L. Diaz Jan 2001

Negotiating The Politics Of Race Through Moral Cross-Cultural Conversation, Jacob L. Diaz

The Vermont Connection

Discussions about race/ethnicity are an important aspect of diversity on college campuses. This paper explores the social construct of race in the United States and the various barriers that arise when individuals engage in dialogue about this issue. I explore the tenets of the Moral Conversation and argue that this will aid us in deconstructing racial/ethnic borders and the politics of race in order to create a more socially just campus environment.


Legacy Student Development: The Costs And Benefits Of Privilege, Jason A. Zelesky Jan 2001

Legacy Student Development: The Costs And Benefits Of Privilege, Jason A. Zelesky

The Vermont Connection

Despite the recent movement within higher education to eliminate preferential admission based on race, gender, and socio-economic status, colleges and universities continue to endorse the controversial practice of admitting legacy students at a significantly higher rate than any other segment of the applicant pool, especially students of color. The debate over the continuation of this practice has college officials, incoming legacies, contributing alumni, and the concerned public arguing about the legitimacy of such an elite route of access. Often ignored in this process is the personal development of the legacy student who is tightly affixed between a rock (the alma ...

Understanding Student Allies On Campus, John P. Sauter Jr.

The Vermont Connection

This paper explores the current gap of research on student allies. Specifically it looks at the definitions associated with being an ally and the difficulties in identifying such students on college campuses. It examines both ally action and developmental models. These models not only illustrate general progressions of development, but are also a springboard for examining the issues facing allies. The paper highlights the roles of student allies on campus and how student affairs professionals and faculty can support and challenge such students.

Doogie Howser, M.D., Ph.D., Ed.D.: The Myths And Realities Of Gifted Students In Higher Education, Rosemary J. Perez Jan 2001

Doogie Howser, M.D., Ph.D., Ed.D.: The Myths And Realities Of Gifted Students In Higher Education, Rosemary J. Perez

The Vermont Connection

This paper seeks to examine gifted student development, specifically regarding academic acceleration. The author will use published literature, observations from the field, and personal communication to: (a) characterize gifted students, (b) address the myths and realities of gifted student development, (c) examine the intersections of identity for gifted students, and (d) examine the interactions between gifted students and student affair professionals. Despite the ageist attitudes of many constituencies within higher education and concerns regarding their development, gifted students are found to be well-adjusted, successful individuals with comparable experiences to those of traditional college-age students.


Moving Out Of The Margins: Mattering And The International Student Experience, Kristin D. Phillips Jan 2001

Moving Out Of The Margins: Mattering And The International Student Experience, Kristin D. Phillips

The Vermont Connection

Deeply personal challenges confront all new students when they arrive at their college or university. Some of their core questions include: “Are we part of things; do we belong; are we central or marginal? Do we make a difference; do others care about us and make us feel we matter?” (Schlossberg, 1989, p. 6). For international students who may be marginalized by race, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic background or language, these questions can be particularly painful. This article recommends a new foundation for working with international students: mattering. It provides a theoretical background for the constructs of marginalization and mattering, examines ...
