Addendum A: Wisherd And Emeriti Funds: Definition Of Terms And Explanation Of Allowable Use Of These Funds, Jason D. Kennedy Dec 2006

Addendum A: Wisherd And Emeriti Funds: Definition Of Terms And Explanation Of Allowable Use Of These Funds, Jason D. Kennedy

Minutes of Board Meetings of the UNL Emeriti Association

Book value is the historical cost basis of the endowment (or investment) whereas market value is what the endowment is worth right now. Basically, book value is what went into the endowment and market value is what you would get if you sold it now. Because this is a permanent endowment, only the income can be spent. The income is the spendable account. The estimated annual income is the amount the fund can expect to earn over the next year if no new contributions are made to the account. It is the endowment thatis earning income and the earnings are ...


Addendum B: Emeritus Status For Retired Faculty Academic /Administrative Employees Dec 2006

Addendum B: Emeritus Status For Retired Faculty Academic /Administrative Employees

Minutes of Board Meetings of the UNL Emeriti Association

Emeritus status is the rank awarded by the Board of Regents to an employee at the time of retirement in recognition of substantial service rendered to the University in teaching, research, extension, or administration in a professional field. It may also be awarded to a retired administrator whose work impinges directly on the educational program.

For faculty the recommendation is initiated by a vote of the departmental faculty with the endorsement of the chair and dean. In the case of A-line administrators, the recommendation is made by that individual's immediate supervisor. Consistent with Regents policy, eligibility for emeritus status ...

Parent Expectations Of Collegiate Teaching And Caring, W. Wayne Young Jr. Nov 2006

Parent Expectations Of Collegiate Teaching And Caring, W. Wayne Young Jr.

Public Access Theses and Dissertations from the College of Education and Human Sciences

This exploratory research determined parent expectations of their traditionallyaged student’s postsecondary institution with an investigator developed and validated survey entitled the PECTAC (Parent Expectations of Collegiate Teaching and Caring). The PECTAC instrument was predicated upon a culling from relevant literature to reflect topics and issues related to the teaching and caring functions of a private and religiouslyaffiliated Midwestern university. Parent participants were asked to provide basic demographic information in addition to ranking each item based on perceived importance.

A web-based survey software package was used to collect data from 475 participants. Dependent variables of parent gender and first-time college ...


A Construction Of Twelve Lifelong Learners’ Perspectives: An In-Depth, Naturalistic Study Of Self-Integration Of Learning, Marvin L. Hunt Nov 2006

A Construction Of Twelve Lifelong Learners’ Perspectives: An In-Depth, Naturalistic Study Of Self-Integration Of Learning, Marvin L. Hunt

Public Access Theses and Dissertations from the College of Education and Human Sciences

This research focuses on understanding people who have chosen to learn throughout their lives. A broad question guided this investigation: What is the rich, lived, lifelong learning experience from the individual’s perspective? This question allowed each participant freedom to explore and define issues he/she considered important relative to lifelong learning. Twelve lifelong learners from a wide range of backgrounds, ages, and experience were serially selected using maximum variation sampling. Most qualitative research uses a priori questions aimed at a specific topic, limiting participants’ discussion. In this study, however, grand tour questions prompted each participant to offer information about ...


A Historical Study Of Nurse Anesthesia Education In Nebraska, Sharon Loseke Hadenfeldt Nov 2006

A Historical Study Of Nurse Anesthesia Education In Nebraska, Sharon Loseke Hadenfeldt

Public Access Theses and Dissertations from the College of Education and Human Sciences

The Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) was the first advanced practice nursing specialty, dating to the late Nineteenth Century in the United States. Nurses were first recruited and trained by surgeons to administer anesthesia beginning in the 1870’s in the United States. Apprenticeship training by either a surgeon, or another nurse, was the initial method of anesthesia training for the early nurse anesthetist. Post-graduate training programs began to appear within some hospitals at approximately 1910. The hospital-based nurse anesthesia programs became more standardized with the implementation of an accreditation program in 1952. Beginning in 1971 nurse anesthesia programs began ...

Developing Institutional Faculty Communities To Review And Assess Sotl Work, Paul Savory, Amy Nelson Burnett, Amy M. Goodburn Nov 2006

Developing Institutional Faculty Communities To Review And Assess Sotl Work, Paul Savory, Amy Nelson Burnett, Amy M. Goodburn

Industrial and Management Systems Engineering Faculty Publications

This workshop explores theoretical questions and practical strategies for how to develop faculty peer reviewers for SOTL work. After reading a set of faculty case-study files that include varying forms of SOTL work, participants will engage in guided discussion about reviewing and assessing such work and about developing faculty communities equipped to do such work. Presenter(s) also will seek feedback on guidelines that they have developed for external reviewers of SOTL work. Many teaching efforts have focused primarily on engaging faculty to participate in SOTL initiatives, with little attention to creating mechanisms for evaluating and assessing the work resulting ...

Spherical Geometry, Linda Moore Nov 2006

Spherical Geometry, Linda Moore

MAT Exam Expository Papers

Spherical geometry was studied in ancient times as a subset of Euclidian three-dimensional space. It was a logical outcome as the earth is a sphere. The word geometry literally means the measure of the earth. However, the undefined terms, axioms and postulates of Euclidian geometry take on a new meaning when studied on a sphere.


Going Home? Schooling In Mexico Of Transnational Children, Víctor Zúñiga, Edmund T. Hamann Oct 2006

Going Home? Schooling In Mexico Of Transnational Children, Víctor Zúñiga, Edmund T. Hamann

Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

The literature in international migration from Mexico to the U.S. has usually examined labor, juridical, political, and public health dimensions of the phenomena. However, the educational aspect of international migration is becoming a major concern for both countries. This article offers preliminary results from a survey of transnational students coming back from the U.S. to Mexican schools. The database includes information from a representative sample of public and private schools of Nuevo León (1st to 9th grade). It includes estimates of the number of transnational students, their school trajectories, and perspectives on their educational experience in both countries.

Annual Progress Report: Nebraska Reading First Two Year Implementation, Guy Trainin, Oren Yagil, Malinda M. Murphy

Research and Evaluation in Literacy and Technology

This report outlines the results of a two year implementation of the Nebraska's Reading First initiative. Over three thousand six hundred students from Kindergarten to Third grade were included in the project. Results indicated significant growth across all demographic groups. Student performance in the earlier grades has shown great promise for later years. Growth in fluency and comprehension in grades 2 and 3 were not as impressive and require additional attention. The assessment results were triangulated by observations in the classrooms, interviews, and teacher responses to professional development- teachers know how to teach Phonemic Awareness and the alphabetic principle ...

Female Superintendents: Historic Barriers And Prospects For The Future, Stephen K. Miller, Youlanda C. Washington, Jeanna R. Fiene Oct 2006

Female Superintendents: Historic Barriers And Prospects For The Future, Stephen K. Miller, Youlanda C. Washington, Jeanna R. Fiene

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

This paper addresses the historic under representation of female superintendents. The primary focus is the legacy of discrimination, in which the barriers to female advancement in a traditionally male field are described. Particular attention is given to three different models of male dominance that have been developed to explain how and/or why women have been excluded from top positions in educational administration. In part two, recognition of the importance of women's contributions to evolving theory in educational administration and a description of the feminine leadership model is offered, wherein women utilize flexible web-like structures, empower others, and prioritize ...


First Things First: Writing Strategies--Drops Of Blood, Marilyn L. Grady Oct 2006

First Things First: Writing Strategies--Drops Of Blood, Marilyn L. Grady

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

Recently, I was gifted with the best writing quotation of the season. It follows. "I don't know how many times I read this Gene Fowler quote: 'Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead'" (Weinberg, 2006, p. 8). The quote captures the truth of the writing enterprise. It isn't easy. In fact, if you don't bleed a little and feel some pain, you aren't putting enough effort into your work. There are a slew of adages about effort and work. All hold ...

Women In History--Sarah Winnemucca: Native Educator And Human Rights Advocate, Bernita L. Krumm Oct 2006

Women In History--Sarah Winnemucca: Native Educator And Human Rights Advocate, Bernita L. Krumm

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

On March 1,2005, Congressman Jon Porter of Nevada addressed Congress on a bill to allow for the placement of a statue of Sarah Winnemucca into the National Statutory Hall. "Sarah led an incredible life," Porter asserted, adding that Winnemucca "has become a part of Nevada history that will never be forgotten" (Porter, 2005). One of only eight women represented in the National Statutory Hall Collection, Winnemucca was a spokesperson and advocate for Indian rights. Her autobiography, Life Among the Piutes, the first published book by a Native American woman, relates the story of white settlement from the Native American ...


The Role Of Gender And How It Relates To Conflict Management Style And School Culture, Chris Harriet Blackburn, Barbara N. Martin, Sandy Hutchinson Oct 2006

The Role Of Gender And How It Relates To Conflict Management Style And School Culture, Chris Harriet Blackburn, Barbara N. Martin, Sandy Hutchinson

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

This investigation focused on principals, by gender, and the impact that the principals' conflict management style had on cultural aspects in schools. Findings were: principals with a conflict management style that is high in dominating show lower school culture scores in professional development, and, conversely, principals with a conflict management style that is high in initiating indicate higher school culture scores in teacher collaboration. When split by gender, the findings were: male principals whose conflict management style is dominating receive lower school culture scores in teacher collaboration, while female principals whose conflict management style was viewed as integrating receive higher ...


Recruiting And Retaining Women Faculty In Science And Engineering, Dorothy Brockopp, Mindy Isaacs, Pam Bischoff, Kimberly Millerd Oct 2006

Recruiting And Retaining Women Faculty In Science And Engineering, Dorothy Brockopp, Mindy Isaacs, Pam Bischoff, Kimberly Millerd

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

The purpose of this project was to assess the perceived efficacy of university-based activities designed to improve the recruitment and retention of women in academic science and engineering (S&E). Numerous approaches to recruitment and retention have been described and implemented but little change occurs. An evaluation of suggested activities by 35 S&E women faculty was conducted using quantitative and qualitative methods. Eight of 25 activities were strongly recommended by participants as effective strategies related to recruitment and retention. Mentoring, as frequently operationalized, was not found to be effective. Several recommendations are offered to improve the system of mentoring.

Voices Of Women In The Field--I'M Glad No One Told Me . ..., Misty Schwartz

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

Prior to beginning my current position, I'm glad no one told me that many women find the academy unappealing, with a chilly environment that can be biased and hostile toward women. I'm glad no one told me that I may suffer from intellectual and social isolation that is brought about by the masculine principles of competition and individualism that often occur in institutions of higher education. I'm glad no one told me that I will have little guidance from my peers due to a lack of mentors and that I may be expected to compromise my personal ...

Student Outcomes And Honors Programs: A Longitudinal Study Of 172 Honors Students 2000-2004, Frank Shushok Jr. Oct 2006

Student Outcomes And Honors Programs: A Longitudinal Study Of 172 Honors Students 2000-2004, Frank Shushok Jr.

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Since this edition of the JNCHC is dedicated to honors administration, it seems appropriate to offer a few introductory remarks about the usefulness of this study. College and university administrators participating in the accreditation process are well aware that assessing student learning is not the passing fad that some had suspected it might be. In the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, for example, administrators are familiar with Core Requirement 2.1—the institution engages in ongoing, integrated, and institution- wide planning and evaluation processes that incorporate systematic review of programs and services (Handbook for reaffirmation of accreditation, 2004). All ...
