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 ...

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 ...


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 ...

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 ...

Qualitative Tools To Examine Efnep Curriculum Delivery, Justine R. Hoover, Peggy A. Martin, Ruth E. Litchfield Jun 2009

Qualitative Tools To Examine Efnep Curriculum Delivery, Justine R. Hoover, Peggy A. Martin, Ruth E. Litchfield

Food Science and Human Nutrition Publications

Use of qualitative research methods to evaluate nutrition education programs is limited. Structured observations and focus groups, qualitative research methods, were conducted to examine use of theory-based learning strategies and participant experiences in a nutrition education program. Theory-based learning strategies included use of open-ended questions, visual aids, and experiential learning activities. Open-ended questioning and some experiential activities were used less often than desired. Language of lesson delivery and instructional setting appear to influence the use of learning strategies. Lesson delivery and instructional setting may be relevant for preferred learning styles of different cultures.


Evaluation Of A New Nutrition Education Curriculum And Factors Influencing Its Implementation, Justine R. Hoover, Peggy A. Martin, Ruth E. Litchfield Feb 2009

Evaluation Of A New Nutrition Education Curriculum And Factors Influencing Its Implementation, Justine R. Hoover, Peggy A. Martin, Ruth E. Litchfield

Extension and Outreach Research and Scholarship

The study reported here evaluated a nutrition education curriculum through examining participant behavior change. A previously used curriculum (April - September 2005 and 2006) was compared to a new curriculum (April - September 2007) using pre- and post-program 24-hour dietary recalls and food behavior surveys. Participant, educator, and program variables were explored relative to behavior change. The new curriculum elicited behavior change similar to that elicited by the previous curriculum. Factors influencing behavior change included participant and educator race and educator experience. Participant and educator variables should be considered in future program/curriculum implementation.

Influences On Residence Hall Students' Perceptions Of Student Leadership, John Shertzer, Kevin P. Saunders, J. Lily Z. Mack, Mack C. Shelley, Donald F. Whalen

Political Science Publications

Leadership has been a focus of higher education since the inception of colleges and universities (Astin & Astin, 2000). Although leadership has been defined in different ways, it resonates as a principle within many higher education institutions. Although the commitment to leadership development has remained strong, different perspectives on leadership have gained prominence and a plethora of models perceptions, theories, and definitions concerning leadership and leadership development have emerged (Bass, 1 990)

Political Science Publications

Early writings on university housing show a connection between dining services and university residence halls (Riker & Lopez, 1 96 1 ) Regardless of how housing and dining programs are organized within the institution, the two entities are inevitably connected; living and eating go together. A recent annual study (Educational Benchmarking, Inc. (EBI), 2002) comparing four years of data cited satisfaction with dining as being one of the foremost predictors of overall residence satisfaction. This prominent relationship provides incentive for housing administrators to be more aware of students' dining satisfaction. The purpose of this research was to examine contributors to residence hall students' dining satisfaction at a large Midwestern university.


External Factors Affecting Room And Board Rates: How Much Influence Does The Housing Director Have?, John H. Schuh, Mack C. Shelley Jan 2001

External Factors Affecting Room And Board Rates: How Much Influence Does The Housing Director Have?, John H. Schuh, Mack C. Shelley

Political Science Publications

The cost of attending college is an issue that has appeared frequently in contemporary literature (Choy & Premo, 1996; Stringer, Cunningham, Merisotist Wellman, & O'Brien, 1999; The Institute for Higher Education Policy, The Ford Foundation, & The Education Resources Institute, 1999). College costs have increased faster than median family income (Stringer, Cunningham, O'Brien, & Merisotis, 1998), and many students and their parents have underestimated the actual cost of attendance. An important element in determining the total cost of attendance is the amount students pay for room and board if they choose to live on-campus. Many experts recommend an on-campus living experience as a way to enrich a student's education (KUh, Douglas, Lund, & Ramin Gyurnek, 1994; Pascarella & Terenzini, 1991 ; Schuh, 1999).


Curling Eye Heddle, Carolyn S. Hoagland Jun 1982

Curling Eye Heddle, Carolyn S. Hoagland

Iowa State University Patents

The curling eye heddle of the present invention utilizes a curling eye which permits the warp thread used in weaving to be threaded onto or unthreaded off of the heddle at the level of the sheet of warps. The curling eye heddle also permits individual warp threads to be lifted or depressed above or below the sheet of warps, respectively. A diamond adjacent to the curling eye prevents the curling eye from catching or snagging neighboring warp threads.
