Evaluation Of A Trauma-Informed Teaching Intervention On The Educational Well-Being Of Youth In Residential Care, Angelique G. Day

Angelique G Day

In response to the high nationwide prevalence of psychological trauma among court-involved youth who have been exposed to abuse and neglect and the associated far-reaching adverse consequences, there are calls to develop a trauma-informed workforce across the various systems (child welfare, juvenile justice, mental health and education) designed to serve these traumatized young persons. We describe a pilot test of a modified version of the Heart of Teaching and Learning (HTL) curriculum, an intervention designed to increase trauma-informed practices in education settings. This program was implemented in a public charter school that exclusively serves court-involved youth placed in residential treatment ...


Is Three A Crowd? Exploring The Development And Satisfaction Of Students In Triples, Larry D. Long, Kyle Kujawa Jan 2015

Is Three A Crowd? Exploring The Development And Satisfaction Of Students In Triples, Larry D. Long, Kyle Kujawa

Larry D. Long

Tripling, the assignment of a third resident to a room designed for two, is a common practice at many colleges and universities across the United States. Most of the research on tripling was conducted three or four decades ago, and research exploring how living in a triple affects the educational gains and satisfaction of college students is limited. The researchers compared the residential experience of residence hall residents who lived in standard double rooms to the experience of residents who lived in triples. The results revealed the residential experience of students in triples was comparable to the experience of students ...


Development Of A Scale To Measure Academic Capital In High-Risk College Students, Rishi Sriram, Christa Winkler Jan 2015

Development Of A Scale To Measure Academic Capital In High-Risk College Students, Rishi Sriram, Christa Winkler

Rishi Sriram, Ph.D.

This study presents a psychometric instrument that measures academic capital in college students. Academic capital is a set of social processes that aid students in acquiring the knowledge and support necessary to access and navigate higher education. This study establishes the validity and reliability of the Academic Capital Scale. In addition to validating the six components of academic capital identified by St. John, Hu, and Fisher (2011), two additional components of academic capital were identified. Providing scholars and practitioners with a measure of academic capital allows institutions to critically examine and restructure their current support programs for high-risk college students.

Who’S At Risk? Exploring Characteristics Of Academic Probation Students, Larry D. Long, Tonisha B. Lane

Larry D. Long

Contemporary college students possess a wider range of academic skills and abilities than ever before. In order to influence student persistence, retention, and academic success, student affairs professionals need to have a greater awareness of the characteristics of academic probation students. This session will inform participants about how one institution used quantitative and qualitative data to better understand their academic probation population, what the institution learned from this data, and how it can be used to shape institutional policies and practices.


The Neighborhood Model: Supporting Student Success Through Departmental Partnerships, Larry D. Long, Kristen Renn Mar 2014

The Neighborhood Model: Supporting Student Success Through Departmental Partnerships, Larry D. Long, Kristen Renn

Larry D. Long

Like a ball in a pinball machine, many students on college campuses have to bounce from one building to another to receive the resources they need. What if we brought the resources to our on-campus students instead? Learn how one institution created small residential communities within the larger campus, or neighborhoods, to promote the academic success of its students.


In Search Of Progressive Black Masculinities: Critical Self-Reflections On Gender Identity Development Among Black Undergraduate Men, Keon M. Mcguire, Ph.D., Jonathan Berhanu, Charles H.F. Davis Iii, Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D. Jan 2014

In Search Of Progressive Black Masculinities: Critical Self-Reflections On Gender Identity Development Among Black Undergraduate Men, Keon M. Mcguire, Ph.D., Jonathan Berhanu, Charles H.F. Davis Iii, Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D.

Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D.

During the last several decades, research concerning the developmental trajectories, experiences, and behaviors of college men as ‘‘gendered’’ persons has emerged. In this article, we first critically review literature on Black men’s gender development and expressions within college contexts to highlight certain knowledge gaps. We then conceptualize and discuss progressive Black masculinities by relying on Mutua’s germinal work on the subject. Further, we engage Black feminist scholarship, both to firmly situate our more pressing argument for conceptual innovation and to address knowledge gaps in the literature on Black men’s gender experiences. It is our belief that scholars ...


Does It Matter Where College Students Live? Differences In Satisfaction And Outcomes As A Function Of Students’ Living Arrangement And Gender, Larry D. Long Jan 2014

Does It Matter Where College Students Live? Differences In Satisfaction And Outcomes As A Function Of Students’ Living Arrangement And Gender, Larry D. Long

Larry D. Long

The purpose of this study was to compare the experiences of students residing in on-campus housing with those of students residing in fraternity/sorority housing, specifically to explore the differences in academic success, alcohol use, and perceptions of the living environment as a function of students’ living arrangement and gender. The researcher sampled 772 respondents from the aggregate results of five institutions that administered the ACUHO-I/EBI Resident Assessment and the AFA/EBI Fraternity/Sorority Assessment during the 2009—10 academic year. Differences by living arrangement and gender were tested using a rank-based factorial analysis of variance. The results revealed ...


Circular Framing: A Model For Applying Bolman And Deal's Four Frames In Student Affairs Administration, Rishi Sriram, Jesse Hines Farley Jan 2014

Circular Framing: A Model For Applying Bolman And Deal's Four Frames In Student Affairs Administration, Rishi Sriram, Jesse Hines Farley

Rishi Sriram, Ph.D.

Administrators in student affairs navigate bureaucracies, manage staff, advocate for resources, and lead with purpose (Sermersheim & Keim, 2005). Nonetheless, scholars note research concerning student affairs management and leadership remains underemphasized in the current literature (Lovell & Kosten, 2000; Carpenter & Stimpson, 2007). Few models in student affairs exist to help translate theory to practice. Bolman and Deal’s (2013) four frames encourage leaders to view organizations through structural, human resource, political, and symbolic lenses. The four frames synthesize decades of literature on organizational theory and are frequently cited in higher education and student affairs publications. Previous scholarship, however, does not provide a model for applying the frames in student affairs administration. This paper proposes the Circular Framing Model-a model for administrative practice combining ...


Rethinking Intelligence: The Role Of Mindset In Promoting Success For Academically High-Risk Students, Rishi Sriram Jan 2014

Rethinking Intelligence: The Role Of Mindset In Promoting Success For Academically High-Risk Students, Rishi Sriram

Rishi Sriram, Ph.D.

This study utilized an experimental pretest-posttest control group design to determine if changing the way academically high-risk college students view intelligence affected their academic effort and achievement when compared to students in a control intervention. Results indicated that students taught to view intelligence as malleable reported significantly higher levels of the multivariate variable academic effort and the univariate variable study skills than did the students who were directly taught study skills. No significant difference in GPA was found between the two groups. Implications for future research and current practice are discussed.


Strategies For Doctoral Students Who Desire To Become Higher Education Faculty Members At Top-Ranked Programs, Sydney Freeman Jr. Jan 2014

Strategies For Doctoral Students Who Desire To Become Higher Education Faculty Members At Top-Ranked Programs, Sydney Freeman Jr.

Sydney Freeman Jr., PhD, CFD

This study investigated what strategies doctoral students could employ to ensure their competitiveness in higher education graduate program faculty searches. A total of 39 program coordinators, department heads, and deans were asked how graduates from non-ranked higher education programs could prepare themselves for faculty opportunities, including searches at top-ranked schools. The findings indicate that developing grantmanship, networking, presentation, and publishing skills will help students to become more competitive. Additionally, participants suggested that students collaborate with other scholars, show initiative in their own professional development, understand the expectations of different program types, and be willing to participate in post-doctoral fellowships. These ...

Five Things Student Affairs Administrators Can Do To Improve Success Among College Men Of Color, Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D.

Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D.

They are outnumbered at most colleges and universities, their grade point averages are among the lowest of all undergraduate students, their engagement in classrooms and enriching out-of-class experiences is alarmingly low, and their attrition rates are comparatively higher than those of White students in U.S. higher education. Their same-race female peers earn larger shares of degrees at all levels, from associate's through doctoral. Encounters with racism, racial stereotypes, microaggressions, and low expectations from professors and others undermine their academic outcomes, sense of belonging, and willingness to seek help and utilize campus resources. At predominantly White institutions, they are ...


Influences Of Theory And Practice In The Development Of Servant Leadership In Students, Jennifer Massey, Tracey Sulak, Rishi Sriram Jan 2013

Influences Of Theory And Practice In The Development Of Servant Leadership In Students, Jennifer Massey, Tracey Sulak, Rishi Sriram

Rishi Sriram, Ph.D.

This paper explores the extent to which the leadership knowledge, skills, and abilities of upper-year student leaders on one private, United States college campus developed as a consequence of their education and experience as an extended orientation leader. Findings reveal that compared to leadership education in the classroom, leadership development is limited by experiences that do not include intentional reflection. We identify key elements in pedagogical frameworks that support and impede the leadership development of students and propose strategies to enhance the learning outcomes established for leadership development.

A Comparison Of For-Profit And Community Colleges’ Admissions Practices, Constance Iloh, William G. Tierney Jan 2013

A Comparison Of For-Profit And Community Colleges’ Admissions Practices, Constance Iloh, William G. Tierney

Constance Iloh

College choice has been an area of inquiry in higher education research for decades. While this scholarship has evolved, it has yet to incorporate the fastest-growing sector of higher education: for-profit colleges and universities. The authors investigate the admissions and recruitment conditions that would lead students— particularly those from low-income backgrounds—to consider a for-profit college over a community college. Specifically, the paper considers information provided to prospective students by several for-profit and community colleges in an urban city. On the basis of this research, conclusions and future directions for college choice theory and organizational practice are developed.
