1. Arabi, Abdulhamid EL. Youth aged out of care: their perceptions of their experiences in out-of-home care.

Degree: PhD, Social Work, 2020, Colorado State University

Child out-of-home care in the United States is dating back to the early nineteenth century. Since then out of home care has taken different forms and shapes. This journey of evolution has been combined with a lot of controversy due to the ongoing debate over the best interest of child within the continuum of care. This continuum of care ranged from the most restrictive approach represented by residential care, to the least restrictive approach, represented by kin ship care or foster family. Ironically, the out-of-home care literature in The United States as well as in the other western countries, indicates its poor outcomes when it comes to education, employment and housing. This study drew attention to the importance of social support, educational support, and family-like practices to improve outcomes for youth aging out-of-care. Suggestions by the youth on how to improve out-of-home care were also collected and reported. Significant differences were found between each of the concepts of social support, family-like experiences and total support and the length of time in out-of-home care. Those youth with fewer years of out-of-home care reported more support. Social relationships also were stressed among children, peers, caregivers, and professionals due to the influence they may have on cared-after children lives. Findings may fill some of the gap in the literature available on social relationship dynamics in out-of-home care environments. Findings may also help caregivers and professionals understand social relationships dynamics and their effects on ageing out of care youth outcomes. Suggestions were provided to policy makers and decision makers in providing the needed services to children in foster care.

2. Mauney, Angela y. Lived experiences of nontraditional African-American female students in a community college.

Degree: PhD, Education, 2020, Colorado State University

The purpose of this study was to describe the phenomenon of nontraditional African-American women's experiences in community college. This research study included the Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) methodology, which attempts to make sense of participants' major life experiences. Ten African-American women participants had in-depth face-to-face interviews. The study examined how their experiences and educational goals were affected by jobs, families, and educational barriers. Additionally, the study explored the participants perceptions of what community colleges were doing to address their concerns. Overall, the results showed that the nontraditional African-American women participants were determined and resilient in their educational pursuits. Primarily, many of the participants had been out of the educational environment for some time and this was one of the main obstacles they had to overcome. The participants were resigned to take non-credit remedial courses at the community college for several years, before taking credit hour courses. The findings suggest that although there were some educational support systems, several of the participants were not aware of the scope of benefits available at the community college. The study's findings show the importance for nontraditional African American females to understand the support of the community college, their own family support, and the support of their faith or belief system. This study fills a gap in the literature concerning grandparents' needs in classes, online mentors, and costs of remedial classes. Work Placement Program (WPP) for Community Colleges is one program that might foster a support system which would allow students a one-hour credit the first and second year at no cost. In addition, the WPP would allow community colleges to assist nontraditional students with additional financial resources.

3. Jacques, Tammy W. Phenomenological study of the organizational commitment of new student affairs professionals, A.

Degree: PhD, Education, 2020, Colorado State University

In this phenomenological study, the author examined the experiences of how 13 new student affairs professionals made meaning of organizational commitment in the workplace. Using data collected from interviews, the findings offer insight into how student affairs supervisors can create an atmosphere conducive to employee commitment to their organization. The author used Meyer and Allen's (1991) three-component conceptualization of organizational commitment as a framework. The thematic results were (a) personal connection, (b) supportive supervision, (c) workplace support among colleagues, (d) gratification from impacting students, (e) long hours, and (f) emotional toll from responding to mental-health and crisis-management issues. Cultivated Relationships was the essence that emerged from the study. Advisors/Committee Members: Kuk, Linda (advisor), Anderson, Sharon (committee member), Chesson, Craig (committee member), Tungate, Susan (committee member).
