The Power Of Language: Exploring Foundations Of Neoliberalism In Federal Financial Aid Policy, Brian A. Burt, Lorenzo D. Baber Apr 2018

The Power Of Language: Exploring Foundations Of Neoliberalism In Federal Financial Aid Policy, Brian A. Burt, Lorenzo D. Baber

Education Publications

Despite claims that colleges and universities are isolated from ideological preferences, sociopolitical discourse regularly shapes policies and practices of postsecondary education. This article considers how national discourse on federal aid for postsecondary education during the 1970s reflected a monumental shift in higher education policy. Specifically, we critique neoliberalism, a tenet of Critical Race Theory (CRT), to examine key testimonies from six expert educational leaders during a 1978 hearing on the Middle Income Student Assistance Act (MISAA). The key testimonies examined in this article highlight how language shifted the focus of national discourse on federal financial aid from public to private ...

Rape Myths And Consent In College-Aged Southern Students, Amy Leanne Cofer May 2014

Rape Myths And Consent In College-Aged Southern Students, Amy Leanne Cofer

Theses and Dissertations

Rape and sexual assault are problematic issues for women on college campuses. Internal and external consent play a role in understanding sexual assault because sexual assault is defined as "nonconsensual sexual activity obtained through force, threats, intoxication, or intimidation." Factors related to understanding consent may include attitudes regarding sexual assault and rape, known as rape myths, which are defined as attitudes and false statements concerning rape that are widely known and accepted, mainly served to justify male sexual aggression towards women. The southeastern United States is known for being religiously and politically conservative, where gender roles are intertwined with a ...


Measuring And Articulating The Value Of Community Engagement: Lessons Learned From 100 Years Of Cooperative Extension Work, Nancy K. Franz Jan 2014

Measuring And Articulating The Value Of Community Engagement: Lessons Learned From 100 Years Of Cooperative Extension Work, Nancy K. Franz

Education Publications

The Cooperative Extension System was created in 1914 with the passage of the Smith-Lever Act. The act provided resources to improve access to education by creating this nationwide organization to bring land-grant university research and resources to people where they lived and worked. Cooperative Extension was the first formal nationwide structure created for university–community engagement. Expectations for Extension as an engaged institution have changed over time. Once seen chiefly as a source of private value for program participants in local communities, Extension is now also expected to provide public value for those not directly involved in Extension programs. After ...

An Assessment Of Statistical Process Control-Based Approaches For Charting Student Evaluation Scores, Xin Ding, Don Wardell, Rohit Verma Jan 2006

An Assessment Of Statistical Process Control-Based Approaches For Charting Student Evaluation Scores, Xin Ding, Don Wardell, Rohit Verma

Articles and Chapters

We compare three control charts for monitoring data from student evaluations of teaching (SET) with the goal of improving student satisfaction with teaching performance. The two charts that we propose are a modified p chart and a z-score chart. We show that these charts overcome some of the shortcomings of the more traditional charts for analyzing SET data. A comparison of three charts (an individual’s chart, the modified p chart, and the z-score chart) reveals that the modified p chart is the best approach for analyzing SET data because it utilizes distributions that are appropriate for categorical data, and ...

Student affairs professionals take seriously their responsibilities for fostering learning and personal development....If learning is the primary measure of institutional productivity by which the quality of undergraduate education is determined, what and how much students learn also must be criteria by which the value of student affairs is judged.
