27 Floors Of Support: Effectively Advertising Campus Resources To College Students, Amanda Peerce
Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects
College campuses provide a large variety of resources to college students to help ensure their well-being and success; however, students cannot utilize these resources if they do not know they exist. While there has been extensive research on the importance and efficacy of resources on college campuses, not as much research has been done on how to advertise these services to college students. The goal of this project is to create and assess the efficacy of a campaign educating and encouraging students to seek out campus resources in times of need. This project focuses primarily on promoting resources to first-year ...

Extending Organizational Memory And Corporate Communications Research Via Autoethnography/Autobiography, 2016 University of Cincinnati - Main Campus
Extending Organizational Memory And Corporate Communications Research Via Autoethnography/Autobiography, Damion Waymer, Nneka Logan
The Qualitative Report
Culture, business, and communication are overlapping human phenomena. However, corporate communication methods have yet to embrace the complexity of organizational culture. Since the study of culture is anthropological in nature, we propose foregrounding autoethnography/autobiographical approaches and method to analyze corporate organizational culture. We argue that studying corporate communication, public relations, and society via the lenses of organizational culture and subsidiary organizational memory can provide unique insights into practice of corporate communication and the theorizing of organizational memory research. In this case example, we answer this question: In what ways can autobiographical/autoethnographic narratives of organizational members inform the theory ...
Good Vibrations: Charting The Dominant And Emergent Discursive Regimes Of Sex Toys, 2016 University of Kassel
Good Vibrations: Charting The Dominant And Emergent Discursive Regimes Of Sex Toys, George Rossolatos
The Qualitative Report
Sex toys promote a new consumptive ethos whose significance may be adequately outlined by attending to the institutional implications of this product category’s consumption. By drawing on Foucault’s theory of sexuality and the technologies of the self that materialize with the aid of discursive formations about sexuality, as well as on relevant sociological and ethnographic insights, I undertake a qualitative content analysis on a corpus of 100 sex toys’ product reviews from popular magazines and web sites in order to identify how the discourse about sex toys is articulated in terms of three dominant categories of sexual scripts ...

Cross-Functional Integration And New Product Performance: An Empirical Analysis And Findings, Lisa C. Troy, Tanawat Hirunyawipada, Audhesh K. Paswan
Tanawat "Tom" Hirunyawipada
Although cross-functional integration is often considered an important element in a successful new product development program, a great deal of variance exists in extant literature regarding how integration is defined and implemented and how relevant studies are conducted.
The authors attempt to bring clarity to a diverse set of 25 studies that investigate cross-functional integration by empirically analyzing 146 correlations between integration and aspects of new product success. The authors examine the impact of 12 potential moderators that affect the integration–success link using meta-analysis techniques.
The findings indicate that though cross-functional integration may indeed have a direct impact on ...

Native Advertising: An International Perspective, 2016 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Native Advertising: An International Perspective, Emily Giller
Professional Projects from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications
Native advertising is a different approach to advertising that welcomes content-based marketing. According to the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), native advertising is defined as “paid for content that is relevant to the consumer experience, and is integrated into the surrounding content and is not interruptive”. Native advertising is advertising disguised as regular news content. Specific examples of native advertising include: sponsored posts, Search Engine Marketing (SEM), print stories that appear in newspapers or magazines but are promoted by a brand, and promoted posts on social media. The point of native advertising is to straddle the line between advertising and editorial ...

Seeing Is Believing, But Is It The Truth? Reality Vs. Representation Of Men In Contemporary Magazine Advertisements, 1980-2010., Dana Ann Lopez Coleman
McQuail (1994) observed, “The entire study of mass communication is based onthe premise that the media have significant effects” (p. 327). Many of these studies in mass communication have focused specifically on the various consequences that are believed to be a result of advertising. These images and perceptions can also become an individual’s reality which serves to shape society and their day-to-day environment. As Rudy, Popova, and Linz (2010) wrote, “Extensive media exposure leads audience members to adopt media reality as their own, and these altered conceptions of reality can in turn influence behavior” (p. 708). Understanding these visual ...

Mistbox Technology Created By Cedarville Engineers, Mark D. Weinstein
In just one year, a pair of Cedarville University alumni have seen their startup company reach new heights.

The Mistbox attaches to central air conditioning units and cools the outside air temperature before it enters the air conditioning unit. This process helps consumers save up to 30 percent on cooling costs, while also reducing its carbon footprint.
