College Readiness Curriculum For Potential First-Generation And/Or Low-Income Students, Caleb Carver Jan 2018

College Readiness Curriculum For Potential First-Generation And/Or Low-Income Students, Caleb Carver

Creative Components

Unfortunately, first-generation and/or low-income students and their parents experience many obstacles to accessing higher education. First-generation college students are at a disadvantage when it comes to attaining higher education because of lack of knowledge and understanding of college terms, personal commitment, and familial support both financially and personally (Filkins & Doyle, 2002). Also, first-generation and/or low-income students are at a disadvantage in terms of overall college readiness and attendance, and students from less privileged families are less likely to attend postsecondary education (Schoon & Parsons, 2002). These findings are of concern as roughly 30% of the incoming freshman in the ...

If We Build It, Will They Come? Fielding Dreams Of College Access, Katherine R. Bruna, Jennifer Farley, Carla A. Mcnelly, Debra M. Sellers, Roberta L. Johnson

Iowa State University Articles and Manuscripts

This article describes the ISU 4U Promise, an innovative college access and affordability initiative. Through this early-commitment partnership program between Iowa State University and Des Moines Public Schools, youth from two urban elementary schools are eligible for tuition awards when they enroll as undergraduates at Iowa State University. Drawing on a review of promise programs in the educational scholarly literature, this article identifies what makes the ISU 4U Promise distinctive among promise efforts in terms of contextual antecedents, implementation processes, and potential institutional outcomes. Unique features include its early childhood focus; sole university sponsorship; “wide-net” reach; and collaborative, critical orientation ...


The Womyn Behind The Counselor: A Panel Discussion Of Transitions To A Predominantly White Institution, Stephanie Carrera, Spurty Surapaneni, Fei Yi, Rachel Bitman-Heinrichs, Izzy Tenbrook Mar 2016

The Womyn Behind The Counselor: A Panel Discussion Of Transitions To A Predominantly White Institution, Stephanie Carrera, Spurty Surapaneni, Fei Yi, Rachel Bitman-Heinrichs, Izzy Tenbrook

Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity (ISCORE)

The purpose of this interactive panel is to educate
staff, faculty, and students on the experiences counseling doctoral students have when transitioning from a racially/ethnically diverse institution or neighborhood to a predominantly White institution (PWI). We hope that our audience may gain a better understanding of how our transition experiences affect our relations with racial/ethnic minority students and our multicultural training experiences on campus. The panel will consist of five doctoral students representing Latina/o, Asian American, East Asian, biracial, and White cultural backgrounds. They will share their unique experiences with identifying with the majority (e.g., predominantly ...


Life Happens (Outside Of College): Non-College Life-Events And Students’ Likelihood Of Graduation, Bradley E. Cox, Robert D. Reason, Samantha Nix, Megan Gillman Feb 2016

Life Happens (Outside Of College): Non-College Life-Events And Students’ Likelihood Of Graduation, Bradley E. Cox, Robert D. Reason, Samantha Nix, Megan Gillman

Education Publications

Students’ lives outside of college can have dramatic effects on academic outcomes (e.g., grades, persistence, graduation). However, the manner in which students’ lives outside of college are referenced in college-effects models suggests some uncertainty among scholars as to which, and how, student experiences outside of an institution affect college student outcomes. Using longitudinal data from a racially diverse sample of 3914 students (997 White, 1051 Black, 915 Hispanic, and 951 Asian) attending 28 institutions, this study employs logistic regression models to examine relationships between three types of non-college life-events and students’ likelihood of graduation. Specifically, we examine the impact ...


Borrowing Among Academically Underprepared Students: Facilitating Success Or Perpetuating Inequity At The Community College?, Lyle Mckinney, Heather Novak, Linda Serra Hagedorn Jan 2016

Borrowing Among Academically Underprepared Students: Facilitating Success Or Perpetuating Inequity At The Community College?, Lyle Mckinney, Heather Novak, Linda Serra Hagedorn

Education Publications

Should students who are academically underprepared for college have immediate, unrestricted access to student loans? Approximately 60% of community college students nationally are placed into developmental coursework and completion rates for these students are highly disappointing: only one in 10 earns a community college credential within three years, while one in three has earned a bachelor’s degree within six years (Complete College America, 2012). Although most developmental education (Dev Ed) students drop out before earning a degree, a recent national study found that in 2011-12, Dev Ed community college students (36%) borrowed at similar rates as their college-ready peers ...


Phenomenography: A Methodological Approach For Assessment In Student Affairs, Melissa Rands, Ann M. Gansemer-Topf Jan 2016

Phenomenography: A Methodological Approach For Assessment In Student Affairs, Melissa Rands, Ann M. Gansemer-Topf

Education Publications

With increased pressure to justify their work, student affairs professionals no longer question the need to engage in assessment (Schuh, 2013). Assessment activities within student affairs have increased dramatically in the past decades, but many of these activities focus on measuring participation and satisfaction. Although important, these activities neglect to answer a more important question: How do student affairs professionals contribute to student learning? (Schuh, 2013; Schuh & Gansemer-Topf, 2010). Despite the increased need to do assessment, many student affairs professionals continue to struggle with ways to measure student learning (Blimling, 2013; Bresciani, 2013; Bresciani, Gardner, & Hickmott, 2009). In this paper, we introduce the reader to one approach, phenomenography, which can be used to document learning in student affairs.


Community-Engaged Signature Work: How A High-Impact Practice May Support Student Well-Being, Ashley Finley, Robert D. Reason Jan 2016

Community-Engaged Signature Work: How A High-Impact Practice May Support Student Well-Being, Ashley Finley, Robert D. Reason

Education Publications

When facilitated intentionally and inclusively, signature work—in which students develop culminating products over time, guided by faculty feedback and driven by their own inquiry—has the potential to be a high-impact practice with transformative results. That potential may be heightened when signature work involves community engagement. As we argue in this article, campus practitioners should consider how students’ participation in community-engaged signature work may positively affect certain noncognitive outcomes as well as cognitive outcomes.


Modeling Success: Using Preenrollment Data To Identify Academically At-Risk Students, Ann M. Gansemer-Topf, Jonathan I. Compton, Darin R. Wohlgemuth, Gregory R. Forbes, Katerina S. Ralston Jul 2015

Modeling Success: Using Preenrollment Data To Identify Academically At-Risk Students, Ann M. Gansemer-Topf, Jonathan I. Compton, Darin R. Wohlgemuth, Gregory R. Forbes, Katerina S. Ralston

Education Publications

Improving student success and degree completion is one of the core principles of strategic enrollment management. To address this principle, institutional data were used to develop a statistical model to identify academically at-risk students. The model employs multiple linear regression techniques to predict students at risk of earning below a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) in their first semester of college. Data analysis from student cohorts starting in the Fall 2007 through Fall 2009 (N = 11,644) identified two groups of students—one predicted to earn less than a 2.0 and the other predicted to earn a 2 ...

Aligning Competencies With Success: What Does It Take To Be An Effective Admissions Counselor, Ann M. Gansemer-Topf, Kasie Von Haden, Elyse Peggar

Education Publications

The admissions counselor position is a common entry-level professional position in higher education. However, little is known about the competencies needed to be successful in this position. Through interviews with entry-level admissions counselors, this study sought to better understand these competencies and their alignment with the recently created ACPA/NASPA Student Affairs competencies. Results and implications for practice are discussed.


Transformative Learning And The 4-H Camp Counselor Experience, Donna Leff, Michael S. Retallick, Nancy K. Franz Jan 2015

Transformative Learning And The 4-H Camp Counselor Experience, Donna Leff, Michael S. Retallick, Nancy K. Franz

Agricultural Education and Studies Publications

While many studies about the 4-H camping experience focus on youth who are campers, few studies examine the outcomes of the experience for counselors. This study examines the extent to which 4-H camp results in transformative learning for 4-H members who serve as camp counselors, examines the perceived changes that occur within counselors, and describes the factors and characteristics of camp that result in personal transformation. The population for this study was 2012 Minnesota 4-H camp counselors. Using the Transformative Learning and the Camp Experience Staff Member Survey, the results indicated that camp counselors experienced transformative learning. Major personal changes ...

A New Theory-To-Practice Model For Student Affairs: Integrating Scholarship, Context, And Reflection, Robert D. Reason, Ezekiel W. Kimball Nov 2012

A New Theory-To-Practice Model For Student Affairs: Integrating Scholarship, Context, And Reflection, Robert D. Reason, Ezekiel W. Kimball

Education Publications

In this article, we synthesize existing theory-to-practice approaches within the student affairs literature to arrive at a new model that incorporates formal and informal theory, institutional context, and reflective practice. The new model arrives at a balance between the rigor necessary for scholarly theory development and the adaptability needed to implement theories. Finally, the model elevates the importance of reflective practice among student affairs professionals as the means to evaluate both formal and informal theories.


Assessing The Culture Of Engagement On A University Campus, Nancy K. Franz Dr., Jeri Childers, Nicole Sanderlin Oct 2012

Assessing The Culture Of Engagement On A University Campus, Nancy K. Franz Dr., Jeri Childers, Nicole Sanderlin

Extension and Outreach to Families Publications

This article describes one team’s efforts to assess the culture of engagement at Virginia Tech. The team utilized a two-pronged approach to analyze the current culture of engagement on campus. This included focus groups with faculty, administrators, and graduate students in two colleges at the university to address pedagogy, implications, and practical issues related to engagement. Analysis of college strategic plans was also completed to assess language related to engagement and engaged scholarship. We found why faculty, administrators, and students conduct engagement work and the challenges and opportunities of doing so. We also discovered what criteria these individuals use ...

Iowa State University Financial Counseling Clinic Client Report, Meghan Gillette, Clinton G. Gudmunson, Jeanna Nation

Human Development and Family Studies Reports

According to client exit surveys, the Financial Counseling Clinic at Iowa State University provides highly satisfactory services to students and non-students in the Ames area. The average level of client financial stress decreased by three points on a ten-point scale after a counseling session. The majority of clients were single, White, Iowa State University students in their early 20s. The biggest concern reported by clients was not having a saving or spending plan. There were differences across ethnic and age groups in the number of financial pressure experienced, stress level, amount of self-reported student loan debt, and self-reported total consumer ...

Queenbees And Wannabees: The Struggle For Power Through Bullying In Adolescent Girls, Deann Valorie Miller Jan 2008

Queenbees And Wannabees: The Struggle For Power Through Bullying In Adolescent Girls, Deann Valorie Miller

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In this hermeneutic phenomenological study, I explore the lived experience of 5 middle school girls in grades 5-9, who have experienced bullying. My question for this study asks, "What is the lived experience of adolescent girls who have experienced female bullying?" The metaphor of queenbees and wannabees has helped me understand adolescent ways of being in the world as they have been bullied. In addition, understanding the lived experience of female bullying is developed through the exploration of the phenomenological life-world themes of body, time, space, and relationality. The theme of body is examined through physical being, emotional being, and ...

Stability Of Career Aspirations: A Test Of Gottfredson's Theory Of Circumscription And Compromise, Kate E. Junk

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Gottfredson's (1981) developmental theory of career choices was evaluated using longitudinal data. This study builds on previous research into Gottfredson's model by addressing methodological issues in the confounding of sex type, prestige, and interest measures when measuring expressed career choices by statistically controlling for the inter-relations among these variables in the analyses. Participants were 2,353 women enrolled at the Seven College Conference Schools and 321 men enrolled at Harvard and Vassar. Expressed career preferences were coded for sex type, prestige, and the Things/People and Data/Ideas interest dimension. Stability of expressed career choices over a one ...

Success In The Sciences: Potential Influences Of Sex Role Conflict, Self-Efficacy, And Role Modeling On Women's Career Aspirations, Anna Frances Rudroff Jan 2007

Success In The Sciences: Potential Influences Of Sex Role Conflict, Self-Efficacy, And Role Modeling On Women's Career Aspirations, Anna Frances Rudroff

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

A discrepancy exists between the number of men and women pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). To investigate this discrepancy, this study examined a model assessing the potential influence of multiple variables on the career aspirations of women pursuing these degrees. Two hundred thirty-two first and second-year women majoring in STEM fields completed measures assessing quality and quantity of role modeling relationships, STEM self-efficacy, STEM interests, sex role conflict, and career aspirations. Quality of role modeling relationships and STEM self-efficacy significantly predicted career aspirations. STEM self-efficacy did not mediate the relation between quality of role modeling relationships ...


Measured Vocational Interests, Expressed Interests In College Major, And Interest Congruence Of College-Bound Women Across Time, Brooke Marie Ruxton Jan 2007

Measured Vocational Interests, Expressed Interests In College Major, And Interest Congruence Of College-Bound Women Across Time, Brooke Marie Ruxton

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The career development of women is influenced by several social and individual variables that affect career decisions and achievement including gender role socialization and the pressures of maintaining multiple roles in addition to career. Women are largely underrepresented in science, technology, math, and engineering (STEM) related fields and this lack of interest has been the focus of a significant portion of vocational psychology literature. Interest congruence, a concept central to the study of women's vocational development, represents a theoretical and statistical formulation of the relation between measured vocational interests and expressed vocational intentions and it has been examined in ...
