Creating and maintaining safe college campuses : a sourcebook for evaluating and enhancing safety programs by Melvin C Terrell( )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 1,657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Violence, hate crimes, theft, drug possession, sexual harassment, concealed weapons, underage drinking, rape--along with many other major and minor offenses--plague all campuses. College and university staff, administrators and policy makers are under increasing parental and legislative pressure to demonstrate they have adopted measures to prevent crime and keep students safe. This book serves as a sourcebook to enhance and evaluate safety programs, generate new solutions and interventions, comply with new legislation, and present practical steps and guidelines to establish best practices. This book pays particular attention to the factors that may give rise to crime. It considers high-risk drinking and examines the intersection between hate crimes and violence. It devotes chapters to discrimination in all its forms--whether against international students, students of color, or on the basis of ethnicity or sexual orientation. It reviews the range of issues relating to harassment and violence against women; and engages with hazing and the presence of guns on campus. The authors pay attention to the different circumstances that may apply in specific institutional types, such as community colleges and minority-serving institutions. The book offers perspectives from administrators, campus security, student affairs personnel, faculty and policy makers; as well as a review of legal considerations. The purpose is to provide readers with the context and tools to devise a comprehensive safety plan. For administrators operating with few formal support systems, advice is given on how to co-opt individuals and resources from around the campus to assist in the common goal of maintaining a safe and welcoming campus
Measuring glass ceiling effects in higher education : opportunities and challenges by Jerlando F. L Jackson( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of the United States workforce shows that women and people of color represent an increasing share of employment in the economy in areas previously dominated by white men, yet we still know very little in regard to why these two groups continue to be underrepresented in senior-level positions. The lack of empirical and practice-based research of glass ceiling effects remains problematic. This volume ... offers readers a comprehensive means to understanding glass ceiling effects in higher education. Each chapter approaches the glass ceiling from a different perspective, providing compelling arguments that truly highlight the importance and usefulness of collecting data on this topic. Institutional decision makers will find valuable information to confront the challenge of glass ceiling effects across different institutional environments. Likewise, institutional researchers will find step-by-step protocols to collect and analyze glass ceiling data as well as a variety of rich examples. Readers will not only find this sourcebook useful for institutional planning purposes, but it will also help them truly understand how the glass ceiling impacts women and people of color in higher education

Executive Behavior An Examination of Three Decades of Administrative Work across Organizational Settings, Industries, and Contexts by Jerlando F. L Jackson( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the executive behavior of educational administrators in schools and universities, and compared it with that of business executives. Data were obtained by tabular review of four select studies on patterns of behavior. Analytical results point to considerable similarity in the daily work realities of executives studied, in spite of differences in organizations and goals. However, when differences did emerge, they were largely due to the executive's proximity to the operational core. Executives closer to the operational core were less likely to have flexibility and control over their work than executives who had layers embedded in their organizations to shield them from the intensity of the operational core. Those closer to the operational core all faced fast-paced days that are commonly fragmented by interruptions and intense to the point that time was not scheduled for non-work-related activities, such as breaks and time for reflection. An implication from this analysis is the need to develop an understanding of how the executive's relative proximity to the core can affect the nature of his or her work. It is hoped that this study will help administrators develop an operational framework for enhancing their work. (Contains 31 references.) (RT)
An Evaluation of the Target Success Mentor Program by Jerlando F. L Jackson( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auburn University's Office of Minority Advancement, in conjunction with Auburn Junior High School, implemented a joint program to assist at-risk African-American male students while at Auburn Junior High School. Using the help of faculty and trained college student mentors, the Success in Reading Program was designed to enhance successful matriculation of minorities into Auburn High School. Auburn University faculty members conducted monthly seminars that addressed such issues as social skills, study strategies, learning skills, and career counseling. Student mentors guided mentees through the program. A summer program offered expert instruction and emphasized age-appropriate sports instruction and skills development as well as instruction in alcohol/drug abuse prevention, nutrition, personal health, career opportunities, and job responsibilities. Each mentee was tracked throughout the program. Evaluation involved survey questionnaires. Each mentee, mentor, and guest speaker completed a survey questionnaire during one seminar session and again, later, by mail. The evaluation examined the effectiveness of recruitment methods, mentoring workshops, and the mentoring process. Results indicated that the program was able to help retain at-risk African-American males in the public schools. The program made a positive impact on mentees' lives. Mentors believed the program was planned and implemented in an organized way. Guest speakers also considered the program effective. The surveys and a participant letter are appended. (Sm)
Mentoring and Its Implications by Joy S Gaston( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores the topic of mentoring and its practical implications. Mentoring requirements have changed over time. Today's mentors are influential people who significantly help others reach major life goals. Mentoring has to address broad, dynamic goals in today's society. Benefits for mentors can include enhanced self-esteem, rejuvenated interest in work, assistance on projects, and friendship. National efforts are being made to encourage mentoring as a tool to help education meet its national goals. To achieve this, mentor programs must be well-organized, and mentors must be properly trained and monitored. Individual who serve as mentors differ according to the program. The importance of the mentor-mentee relationship is becoming pronounced in the United States today. Mentor-mentee relationships are formed in three ways: initiation by the mentee, initiation by the mentor, and serendipity. There are many different models that a mentoring program can use. This paper examines different types and forms of mentoring and their implications, focusing on business and industry mentor programs and educational mentor programs (which include programs for administrators, beginning teachers, and peers). Mentor programs have proven to be successful in all organizational facets where there is a desire to help someone achieve their maximum performance level in a given setting. (Contains 19 references.)

An Emerging Retention Model for Administrators of Color at Predominately White Institutions The Results of Two Delphi Studies by Jerlando F. L Jackson( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper represents the initial step toward developing a model for retaining administrators of color at predominantly white institutions (PWIs) in higher and postsecondary education. Retaining administrators of color is an important measure for diversity in higher education. Data for this paper were derived from two Delphi studies that explored concepts for retaining African American administrators at PWIs. Each study used a panel of 10 African American administrators. In one study, the panel was asked to suggest practical steps PWIs could take, and the second study focused on professional growth factors. From the rounds of these Delphi studies, an emerging retention model was developed. The concerns of retention are captured by phases labeled preengagement, engagement, advancement, and outcome (retention of administrators of color). This paper is the first step in a long process of refining the properties of this model and testing hypotheses about their interactions. The next step will be empirical research that attempts to further classify strategies according to the four phases of the model. (Contains 24 references.) (SLD)
How Associate Deans' Positions are Designed within the Context of the Top 50 Colleges and Schools of Education by Jerlando F. L Jackson( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the design of associate deans' positions within the context of the top 50 colleges and schools of education, focusing on three design parameters (job specialization, formalization of behavior in carrying out the job, and training and indoctrination required for the job). Researchers examined data derived from a compilation of organizational charts of the top 50 colleges and schools of education as identified by "U.S. News and World Report," which provides detail on the functions and duties of each position, and a national survey of 1,440 deans regarding their organization, staffing patterns, span of control, and dean's leadership team. Participants were 131 associate deans from 49 colleges and schools of education. Data analysis indicated that the division of labor was frequently divided among two or three associate deans. Number of associate deans appeared to be based on type of university, size of college or school, and degree of university centralization or decentralization of administrative duties. Dean behavior was highly formalized by function. The indoctrination of deans was relatively nonexistent. For the most part, associate deans were informally socialized on the job.

Decanal work : using role theory and the sociology of time to study the executive behavior of college of education deans by Jerlando F. L Jackson( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The structured data was collected in one area: chronology records. The chronology record was designed to provide basic data on the design of the work day and to provide a reference to the field notes (unstructured data). After undertaking the data analysis of each kind of activity for this study Mintzberg's roles were reaffirmed; however, additional roles were added and categorized in order to accommodate academic deans. To support the academic executive behavioral theory presented, it was necessary to describe rigorously the activities of academic deans. The primary focus was to recount the activities the deans were observed performing, and secondarily offer suggestions on why these activities occurred. To provide a theoretical grounding to guide the analysis of the data, the sociology of time was employed. The overarching findings from both sets of data demonstrate that academic deans adhere closely to Mintzberg's executive behavioral theory
Retention of African American Administrators at Predominantly White Institutions: Using Professional Growth Factors to Inform the Discussion by Jerlando F. L Jackson( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study explored the concept of retention as it relates to African American administrators at predominantly white institutions, focusing on professional growth factors that predominantly white institutions can target to facilitate retention of African American administrators. Motivation-Hygiene Theory was used to determine methods of retention within the categories of hygiene factors and motivator factors. The Delphi study was conducted from an interpretivist perspective. Six male and four female African American administrators at the dean level and above participated. Findings suggest that the most important step in addressing professional growth needs is ensuring that the administrators is given the authority to make decisions within the job description. Also important were establishing mentoring programs and providing release time and funding for research, scholarship, and professional development. It is important to enable the administrator to develop knowledge about the institution by broadening his or her participation beyond diversity-related committees and functions. Providing a full range of leadership opportunities is helpful, as is providing the financial support for attendance at professional meetings. These recommendations may also help in the retention of administrators from other minority groups. (Contains 54 references.) (Sld)

Decanal work: Using role theory and the sociology of time to study the executive behavior of college of education deans by Jerlando F. L Jackson( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study was: (1) to generate an understanding of the daily administrative processes (activities) of the college of education dean; and (2) to generate a theory based on the delineated roles of the dean as it relates to the executive behavior of the position during the work day. Upon the collection of data determining the dean's executive behavior a comparative analysis using role theory between the dean's executive roles and executive roles found by Mintzberg (1973) was provided. The roles were then aggregated to form the executive behavior of academic deans;Qualitative and quantitative methodologies were both employed in this research. A field study methodology borrowed from the discipline of anthropology was used to collect structured (quantitative) and unstructured observation (qualitative) data on four college of education deans. The specific methods emphasized are structured observations, and unstructured observations. The structured data was collected in one area: chronology records. The chronology record was designed to provide basic data on the design of the work day and to provide a reference to the field notes (unstructured data);After undertaking the data analysis of each kind of activity for this study Mintzberg's roles were reaffirmed; however, additional roles were added and categorized in order to accommodate academic deans.
