In pursuit of degrees with integrity : a value added approach to undergraduate assessment by Northeast Missouri State University( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Value-Added Program at Northeast Missouri State University is discussed. The value-added approach emphasizes the use of existing resources to enhance student learning, as well as the evaluation of student learning and personal development through regular assessment. To indicate the need for a value-added approach, the current crises confronting higher education are reviewed, along with both traditional and value-added responses to dealing with these problems. Information is also provided on how the value-added approach relates to academic standards, measurements, and other data. Prerequisites for implementing this approach at a college or university are considered, including having clear goals and objectives, the capacity to collect and monitor student progress, and an evaluation strategy. Attention is also directed to: basic challenges in implementing the value-added approach, assessing quality, measurement and curriculum, student motivation, and validity. Five case studies designed to demonstrate how the value-added approach has provided the perspective and mechanisms for solving concrete problems are presented. Appendices include information on the assessment instruments, three newspaper articles, and the Northeast Missouri State University Graduating Student Questionnaire. (Sw)
Exploring common ground : a report on business/academic partnerships by Washington, Dc American Association of State Colleges and Universities( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The benefits of business/academic partnerships are described from both the corporate and university perspective. Examples are presented which demonstrate ways in which educational institutions have developed collaborative arrangements with area businesses in response to local needs. Communication processes involved in such cooperative agreements are handled in many ways, such as through advisory councils, luncheon clubs, seminars, lectures, and corporate roundtables. Some partnerships focus on improvement of instructional programs, by developing training programs, seminars, workshops, and institutes offered by both university and business personnel. Corporate personnel contribute to the evaluation, revision, and updating of college curricula. Collaborations have made possible the delivery of such direct services by university faculty as on-site training of employees, technical assistance, counseling centers, and management consulting. Sharing facilities and equipment has also been found to be advantageous to both industry and universities. Combining several of these features has resulted in comprehensive partnerships in which the university offers the services of faculty members and students, laboratory space, and other physical facilities, in return for which business provides funds for research, technical assistance, career development, arts centers, and economic development centers.

Minorities in public higher education : at a turning point by Clifton R., Jr Wharton( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fundamental issues confronting public higher education in its efforts to reach America's minorities are addressed. Higher education's historical progress in providing a path to equality is surveyed, and certain recent trends showing a clear reversal of that progress are examined. Three chapters offer strategies for stopping the trend and reawakening the national commitment to providing higher education as a path to equality for all. "Public Higher Education and Black Americans: Today's Crisis, Tomorrow's Disaster?" (Clifford R. Wharton, Jr.) Advocates a second front in the battle for educational equity, with minority communities being the foundation for minority progress. In "Revising the Recent Decline in Minority Participation in Higher Education" John Maguire expands on this theme to argue that the society must recognize its vital stake in minority progress before any progress can be made. This new perspective must be permanent. Finally in "Standing at the Crossroads: Traditionally Black Colleges Today," Albert N. Whiting examines the historical and contemporary vitality of traditionally black institutions and explores their necessity and value in a society committed to integration. (Sm)

The Higher education--economic development connection : emerging roles for public colleges and universities in a changing economy by Tom Chmura( Book )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ways that colleges are involved in economic development and how these roles develop at different colleges are discussed, along with the rationale and benefits for college involvement in economic development. Attention is directed to key programmatic, policy, organizational, and strategic issues that need to be addressed with increased college participation. In addition to a literature review, information sources included: a mail survey of almost 300 public colleges and universities; telephone interviews with researchers, public officials, association representatives, and college and university leaders; and site visits to seven public universities. For seven economic objectives, college roles in economic development are identified, as are the colleges which serve as examples, possible economic benefits for each objective/role, possible institutional benefits, and some potential concerns. College roles in economic development are described for specific institutions of the following types: regional, urban, historically black, technological, and flagship campuses at state university systems. Also considered are 10 prerequisites for success for college involvement in economic development. A 7-page bibliography, and addresses and phone numbers of national resource organizations and colleges cited in the text are included. (Sw)

Due process in the student-institutional relationship by Thomas C Fischer( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Students are making increasingly strong efforts to exercise what they consider to be their rights, and it is becoming ever more crucial to define what these rights are and what the concept of "due process" means. This report explains the meaning of procedural due process: the concept of "dueness" and the student's "right" to due process. In addition it discusses: (1) the legal relationship between the student and the institution: the contract theory, the concept of in loco parentis, the fiduciary theory, and the constitutional theory; (2) the present state of disciplinary procedures within the academy and elements of fair and just dealing in student discipline cases which should meet the "due process" requirement; (3) methods for initiating an adjudicatory system and procedures which will assure that these requirements are met; (4) some minor issues which surround the main topic, such as violation of a criminal or civil law, double jeopardy, self incrimination, right to a private or public hearing and severance, search and seizure, warrants, and record keeping; and (5) a rationale for the positions taken. A sample statement concerning student "due process" and an annotated bibliography conclude the report. (Af)
