Women Of African Descent: Persistence In Completing A Doctorate, Vannetta L. Bailey-Iddrisu Dec 2012

Women Of African Descent: Persistence In Completing A Doctorate, Vannetta L. Bailey-Iddrisu

Vannetta L. Bailey-Iddrisu

This study examines the educational persistence of women of African descent (WOAD) in pursuit of a doctorate degree at universities in the southeastern United States. WOAD are women of African ancestry born outside the African continent. These women are heirs to an inner dogged determination and spirit to survive despite all odds (Pulliam, 2003, p. 337).This study used Ellis’s (1997) Three Stages for Graduate Student Development as the conceptual framework to examine the persistent strategies used by these women to persist to the completion of their studies.

John D. Foubert

Non-commissioned male officers in the U.S. Army stationed in Germany were trained to present a one-hour rape prevention workshop, The Men’s Program, to 237 enlisted male soldiers. A comparison group of 244 male soldiers received a briefing focused on reducing the individual’s risk for experiencing sexual assault, discussion of myths and facts about sexual assault, and how to avoid being accused of sexual assault. Participants in The Men’s Program experienced significant change in the predicted direction for bystander willingness to help, bystander efficacy, rape myth acceptance, likelihood of raping, and likelihood of committing sexual assault with ...


The Future Of Higher Education Preparation Programs: Implications For Policy And Practice, Sydney Freeman Jr. Nov 2012

The Future Of Higher Education Preparation Programs: Implications For Policy And Practice, Sydney Freeman Jr.

Sydney Freeman Jr., PhD, CFD

Half of the sitting university presidents in the United States are over the age of 60 (American Council of Education, 2012a). Thus, they are nearing the age of retirement. This poses a problem and makes the preparation of leaders to replace them of particular importance. Higher education administration programs have been an academic preparation ground for those aspiring to higher education leadership. In prior years, it was most common that higher education program graduates were offered lower- and middle-level management positions in colleges and universities. Similarly some of these graduates developed careers in government agencies dealing with higher education issues ...


College Presidents: Voices Of Civic Virtue And The Common Good Of Democracy, Stephen Nelson Nov 2012

College Presidents: Voices Of Civic Virtue And The Common Good Of Democracy, Stephen Nelson

Stephen J. Nelson

America’s colleges and universities have contributed significantly to civic virtue and the common good of democracy. College presidents undergird this heritage by affirming the relationship of education to fundamental civic virtues and values of democracy. Contemporary presidents and their actions navigating controversies and issues are exemplary of this continuing commitment today despite the challenges of increasing pluralism and diversity. The argument presented is that presidents can and should use the values of the academy to express their voice to respond to these situations and to recreate a civil religion capable of maintaining the civic virtue and common good of ...

Leaders In The Labyrinth : College Presidents And The Battleground Of Creeds And Convictions, Stephen Nelson Nov 2012

Leaders In The Labyrinth : College Presidents And The Battleground Of Creeds And Convictions, Stephen Nelson

Stephen J. Nelson

Leaders in the Labyrinth sheds light on the ways presidents conduct the influence and power of their office, especially in the use of their pulpits, how they navigate issues of political correctness, and how they hold the center of the university together in contentious times and against competing ideological forces. Nelson has formulated a comprehensive image of the tenor, talents, and temperaments essential for today's presidency, for those who aspire to assume leadership in the future and for those --administrative and alumni leaders, trustees, and senior faculty--who fix on and select the leaders of our colleges and universities.

Contemplating Writing A Book?, Marcia Anderson, Thomas Mickey, Stephen Nelson, Erin O'Connor

Stephen J. Nelson

The process of writing a book can be daunting, but many of our Bridgewater State College faculty are accomplished book authors. Authors’ published works include a clinical allied medical textbook, a monograph and documentary history reader, academic scholarly books, and popular works. This panel of authors will share their perspectives on the following questions regarding the process of writing a book: 1) why did you decide to write a book and how did you know the time was right, 2) what were the first steps once you made the decision, 3) how did you find a publisher, 4) how did ...

Leadership Frames: A Study Of The Leadership Practice Of Higher Education, Benedicta Eyemaro, Stephen Nelson

Stephen J. Nelson

This presentation is based on Lee Bolman and Terrance Deal’s “Leadership Orientations” instrument designed to assess a leader’s perceived application of the four frames of leadership presented as a theoretical structure. In this pilot study, we administered the Bolman and Deal instrument to higher education administrators at Bridgewater State College. The leadership frames instrument was distributed to 146 middle and upper level administrative leaders, including faculty members coordinating programs and thus serving in administrative positions at the college. Based on 59 responses, the human resource frame was revealed as the one used most extensively. However, this finding was ...


Decades Of Chaos And Revolution: Showdowns For College Presidents, Stephen Nelson Nov 2012

Decades Of Chaos And Revolution: Showdowns For College Presidents, Stephen Nelson

Stephen J. Nelson

Decades of Chaos and Revolution: Showdowns for College Presidents is the story and comparison of two eras in the history of higher education. The first era covers the period of the 1960s through the mid-1970s, and the second is the first decade of the twenty-first century. Both decades were marked by events that shook the foundations of colleges and universities, and society as a whole. Nelson weaves an engaging story, told through the eyes of the presidents of the institutions that were involved in the chaos of those eras.

For colleges and universities and their presidents, these two decades are ...


Leaders In The Crossroads : Success And Failure In The College Presidency, Stephen Nelson Nov 2012

Leaders In The Crossroads : Success And Failure In The College Presidency, Stephen Nelson

Stephen J. Nelson

Leaders in the Crossroads considers two intriguing issues: an exploration of the characteristics that determine success and failure in the academy's top post and the impact of that post on a college. An evaluation of the responsibilities and challenges presidents face, and how they speak and lead, is a fair way to explore realities about college presidents and their successes and failures. How do presidential leadership, rhetoric, and action connect to the fundamental beliefs and values at the foundation of the university? Are presidents able to make a difference, and if so, how do they contribute to the legacy ...

Elitism Or Pragmatism?Faculty Hiring At Top Graduate Programs In Higher Education Administration, Sydney Freeman Jr., David Diramio

Sydney Freeman Jr., PhD, CFD

This study is an examination of the hiring practices of top-ranked higher education administration graduate programs in the United States. A total of 39 program coordinators, department heads, and/or deans were asked using qualitative methods to address the phenomenon of faculty hiring, including why a majority of top-ranked programs preferred hiring faculty who have doctorates from other top programs. One of the findings indicates that top-programs indeed hire them for very practical reason as identified in the study. Findings from this study should inform the decision-making of higher education program coordinators, department heads, and deans as they conduct faculty ...

Robert L. Rubenstein

This study reports the findings of an electronic exploratory survey of National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) Student Representatives. The purpose of the survey was to gather information about the perspective of graduate students concerning problematic peers and their experiences with them in school psychology training programs. Findings suggest that (a) students are unsure whether or not their training programs have an official procedure in place for dealing with problematic students; (b) the problems they observe most commonly involve poor interpersonal skills; (c) consistent with other mental health programs, school psychology graduate students most often talk with their peers or ...
