Barbara K Searight, H. Russell Searight
Creative Education (CE) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2011.23043
Abstract: Despite the developmental significance of emerging adulthood as a time for critical self reflection and clarification of values, college and university education rarely includes self-assessment in curricula. Stephen Covey’s book “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People is a description of the importance of formulating a personal mission and critically reflecting on personal priorities. As part of a course in organizational psychology, students read about mission statements, their importance, and completed an accompanying workbook/journal. A key component of this exercise was for students to develop a personal mission statement. Students reported that they found this activity to be very helpful-- particularly regarding values clarification and how they were actually using their time. Students commented that because of the fast pace of their lives, they rarely had time to engage in this type of reflection and were appreciative of the structure provided by the reading, journal, and opportunity to discuss their goals and values.

Unless these issues are addressed, the extent to which university education could enhance youth empowerment would remain limited. Relevant policy and management strategies for improvement were suggested.

Medical Education Online , 2013, DOI: 10.3402/meo.v18i0.20540
Abstract: Background: The academy movement developed in the United States as an important approach to enhance the educational mission and facilitate the recognition and work of educators at medical schools and health science institutions. Objectives: Academies initially formed at individual medical schools. Educators and leaders in The University of Texas System (the UT System, UTS) recognized the academy movement as a means both to address special challenges and pursue opportunities for advancing the educational mission of academic health sciences institutions. Methods: The UTS academy process was started by the appointment of a Chancellor's Health Fellow for Education in 2004. Subsequently, the University of Texas Academy of Health Science Education (UTAHSE) was formed by bringing together esteemed faculty educators from the six UTS health science institutions. Results: Currently, the UTAHSE has 132 voting members who were selected through a rigorous, system-wide peer review and who represent multiple professional backgrounds and all six campuses. With support from the UTS, the UTAHSE has developed and sustained an annual Innovations in Health Science Education conference, a small grants program and an Innovations in Health Science Education Award, among other UTS health science educational activities. The UTAHSE represents one university system's innovative approach to enhancing its educational mission through multi- and interdisciplinary as well as inter-institutional collaboration. Conclusions: The UTAHSE is presented as a model for the development of other consortia-type academies that could involve several components of a university system or coalitions of several institutions.
Effects of the brazilian university policy of targeting the poor
Andrade, Eduardo de Carvalho;
Estudos Econ?micos (S?o Paulo) , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-41612007000300008
Abstract: this paper analyzes theoretically the effects on the quality of the labor force of the introduction of the program called prouni (programa universidade para todos), adopted by the brazilian government in 2005. this program consists of giving tax exemptions to private universities that provide scholarships to students coming from low income families. the analysis suggests that the quality of the labor force can either increase or decrease depending on two crucial variables: the shape of the university sector's supply curve and the level of preparation to face university studies of the students who are targeted by the program vis-à-vis the non-targeted ones.

Development of University on-Campus Microcomputer Maintenance and Repair Policy: an Annual Review  [PDF]
George R. McMeen
Journal of Educational Media & Library Sciences , 1988,
Abstract: 無 The University of Nevada-Reno with 9,100 students has microcomputers valued at $2.8 million which are used in 275 different courses by students who log over 368,000 hours of use per academic year. In the first year of implementation of an on campus microcomputer maintenance and repair policy, 1985-86, the University initially provided maintenance with a 5% and later 6% assessment of the purchase price of the equipment. This policy was evaluated at the end of six months and again at the closure of one year. Work orders numbered approximately 125 per month or a total of 1500 job requests during the first year of operation, with 63% of all repair work provided on campus. Details on the kinds of repairs and consultations requested are indicated for this time period. Consideration is given to generalized problems and concerns resulting from the execution of an institutional policy for microcomputer maintenance and the charges arising from this procedure.
