Title: Do Support Services at Community Colleges Encourage Success or Reproduce Disadvantage? An Exploratory Study of Students in Two Community Colleges
Melina Mechur Karp, Lauren O
APA: N/A
Status: Available

Desc: This study examines the ways that student support services in community colleges inadvertently perpetuate and legitimate disadvantage. Using interview data from students at two colleges in the northeast, we find that although support services are open to all students, only those who come to the college with pre-existing social and cultural resources can take advantage of them. However, because they are presented as open-access, students not able to make use of support services interpret their failure to progress toward a degree as personal, rather than structural.

Title: Profile of Undergraduates in U.S. Postsecondary Education Institutions: 2003-04
Author: Laura Horn and James Griffith
APA: N/A
Status: Available

Desc: The article reports on case study research carried out in two education institutions introducing information learning technology (ILT) as an enhancement to the learning experience. The approaches to change in each institution, described as structural and pedagogic, represent different strategies emanating from what might be polar opposites in the organizational structure. The research focuses on a university, where change is promoted by the lecturing staff interested in pedagogic developments, and a college of further education, where the Senior Management Team drive through structural changes which impact on traditional methods of course delivery. A range of leadership theories are employed to discuss the two cases and a leadership model proposed which, within the context of pedagogic and structural domains of interest, encourages staff in education institutions to develop better understandings of the parameters, interests and issues impacting on their respective roles.
