Revision with unchanged content. In contemporary society, high school students and early career adults face a bewildering variety of postsecondary educational choices, working adults may find that career advancement or transition will require new types of information literacy skills or other postsecondary education. Forces such as the information explosion, access to the Internet, and economic globalization are influencing careers and changing the educational landscape. At American colleges and universities, nontraditional enrollment patterns are becoming increasingly commonplace, as students and institutions adapt to a new socio-cultural environment. Based on an innovative research design, employing a national sample of household education survey data and multi-phase statistical analysis, this empirical study evaluates the influence of contextual characteristics and student motivations on postsecondary participation in credential programs, including vocational/technical as well as college/university programs. In addition to researchers in the social sciences and higher education policy makers, this book is for anyone with an interest in educational preparation and skills for the 21st century workplace.
While extensive research has been conducted examining thecollege choice process of undergraduate students, little empiricalresearch has been conducted on the relative factors affecting thelaw school choice of prospective African-American students, notonly in Texas, but also nationwide. By developing a college choicemodel for African-American students considering legal education,this study will assist researchers and law school administrators inunderstanding the importance of these factors in thedecision-making process. For example, how influential are (1)minority faculty role models and mentors, (2) financial aid, (3)assurance of employment after graduation, (4) supportive on-campusand off-campus organizations, and (5) scholarships in the lawschool selection process of African-Americans? The study wasdesigned to survey prospective African-American students enrolledin Texas law schools during the 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 academicyears. Of the nine law schools located in the state of Texas, fourprivate law schools, three public law schools and one historicallyBlack law school chose to participate.
As enrollment of minority students and recruitment of minority faculty in higher education increase, opportunities for students to interact with racially and ethnically different faculty will become more frequent and pronounced. Also, there may be expectations that these interactions will produce greater educational gains and sensitivity to racial issues. A quantitative research methodology was employed to measure the nature of the student-faculty interactions across race and to explore factors that influence undergraduate students GPA and multicultural perceptions in order to identify ways in which student-faculty interactions might better serve the students.Data collection consisted of surveying students and faculty members via email. The researcher found that only the quality of student-faculty interactions, which belongs to the quality of interactions, had a positive impact on students GPA (.06) and their multicultural perceptions (.18). A better understanding of factors influencing students GPA and multicultural perceptions would be beneficial for both teachers and undergraduate students at VCU.
So far, various efforts have been made by governments and international donors to increase women participation in formal schooling and the labour market. However, evidence still persists that women in most parts of the world face numerous challenges. The general enrollment of females in Vocational Education and Training (VET) institutions is lower than males and in particular they are under-represented in science oriented. This book contributes insights that female enrollment in science oriented courses in VET institutions is very low, factors influencing their access and participation and recommends that all stake holders in education should support and initiate programmes and activities aimed at increasing female enrollment in science oriented courses. This publication will be useful to policy makers and educationist in the efforts towards gender equality in education.
