This study will illustrate how effective assessments drive strategic planning initiatives that allow institutions to move toward achieving their vision without requiring new revenue.

So You Want To Be A Leaders In Higher Education? Developing Leadership As Women (Professional Development Workshop), Susan R. Madsen Aug 2007

So You Want To Be A Leaders In Higher Education? Developing Leadership As Women (Professional Development Workshop), Susan R. Madsen

Susan R. Madsen

This insightful and innovative PDW will 1) describe some of the results of a qualitative research study on the leadership development of ten women university presidents, and 2) provide participants with an opportunity to engage in self-analysis and personal reflection. "Leadership" will be broadly framed as leading from a formal position (e.g., president, VP, dean, associate dean, department chair, or committee chair) as well as influencing without an official title or formal authority; therefore, conference attendees interested in influencing change at any level in higher education would benefit.

An Analysis Of Attendance At Major League Baseball Spring Training Games, Michael R. Donihue, David Findlay, Peter Newberry Jan 2007

An Analysis Of Attendance At Major League Baseball Spring Training Games, Michael R. Donihue, David Findlay, Peter Newberry

Michael R Donihue

This paper examines the determinants of game-day attendance during Major League Baseball’s 2002 spring training season in Florida. Our model of game-day attendance includes location, quality of game, and time and weather variables. A censored Tobit estimation procedure is used to estimate our model. Our results indicate that the quality of the game, average ticket price, and several location-specific factors affect attendance. Specifically, our results suggest that changes in income have no effect on attendance while increases in ticket prices cause reductions in attendance. Furthermore, the estimated price elasticity of demand for Major League Baseball during the spring training ...


The Ethics Of Entitlement In Higher Education: Greater Good Versus Self Interest In The Academy, Susan R. Madsen, Scott C. Hammond Jan 2007

The Ethics Of Entitlement In Higher Education: Greater Good Versus Self Interest In The Academy, Susan R. Madsen, Scott C. Hammond

Susan R. Madsen

Higher education often pretends to support practical egalitarian organizations with access to all and openness of ideas. But in reality it is a hierarchy just like any private corporation. Individual identity determines status in the hierarchy. People jockey for changes in status. There are clear rules for moving up and down in status. This paper asks the question "Do the entitlements that we support in order to maintain the equalitarian ideal in fact work against it?"

The Cherokee-Freedmen Story: What The Media Saw, Ronald Smith Jan 2007

The Cherokee-Freedmen Story: What The Media Saw, Ronald Smith

Ronald D Smith APR

National media and international journalists watched in March 2007, as voters in the Cherokee Nation decided issues of citizenship. Reporters looked at the same situation and often talked with the same people, but they didn’t always see the same story.

Some journalists saw the Cherokee-Freedmen story as one about race and civil rights; some saw it as being about Cherokee sovereignty and Indian identity. This content analysis investigates media reporting on the issue.


Two Polls Show Media And Government Out Of Step With The Public, Ronald Smith Jan 2007

Two Polls Show Media And Government Out Of Step With The Public, Ronald Smith

Ronald D Smith APR

It makes for an interesting and unusual image -- public opinion marching down the path of social progress; government and the news media on the other side, out of step with the people who make up the media-using citizenry.

The specifics of this report deal with taxation proposals in New York State, but close your eyes and you'll see the obvious parallels throughout ther country in dozens of situations in which states tell Indian tribes and nations what they should or should not do, or what the state would like to do to them.

Fundamentally, this report deals with the ...

The Increasing Expectation Of Relevance For Higher Education And The Academic Profession: Some Reflections On The Case Of Mexico, Jesús F. Galaz-Fontes, Laura E. Padilla-González, Manuel Gil-Antón

Jesús Francisco Galaz Fontes

Developments in the global context and in national conditions have stimulated a re-examination of higher education relevance in the context of the increasing role of knowledge in the economic and social life of nations. In general, and such is the case also for Mexico, there are increasing expectations regarding higher education potential contribution to society. In this essay we discuss, in the context of the recent evolution of Mexican higher education, the drivers that are elevating the relevance expectations that Mexicans have of higher education. After that, we elaborate how higher education growth dynamics and the increasing social expectations regarding ...

Leadership Philosophies And Styles Of Women University Presidents, Susan R. Madsen Jan 2007

Leadership Philosophies And Styles Of Women University Presidents, Susan R. Madsen

Susan R. Madsen

Although progress has been made, it remains clear that women are still underrepresented in administrative positions in all types of higher educational institutions throughout the world. While the issue is often now addressed in the literature, there are still few articles reporting research findings on the experiences and perceptions of university presidents, particularly women. Ten women university presidents were interviewed using the phenomenological research methodology. This paper reports the results of this research related to the presidents’ perceptions of their own leadership styles and philosophies.
