1. Balog, Scott Evans. An Analysis of Performance-Based Funding Policies and Recommendations for the Florida College System.

Degree: EdD, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, 2016, Florida State University

Nearly 30 states have adopted or are transitioning to performance-based funding programs for community colleges that allocate funding based on institutional performance according to defined metrics. While embraced by state lawmakers and promoted by outside advocacy groups as a method to improve student outcomes, enhance accountability and ensure return on investment of public resources in higher education, limited research exists confirming the effectiveness of performance-based funding in meeting intended policy goals. The policy analysis examined performance-based funding programs administered in Florida as the status quo and Ohio as the policy alternative. Prompted by their Governors, both states recently developed new approaches to performance-based funding that move funding away from enrollment and tie substantial amounts to student outcomes. To provide a context for the policy analysis, the study chronicled the history of performance-based funding and accountability programs for higher education enacted by states and reviewed policymaking processes and influences. The study applied a multi-goal approach to compare the policy alternatives applied in each state. Although it is still too early to assess the effectiveness of the performance-based funding programs in both states, the review of both system and institutional level performance data and interviews with stakeholders in Ohio revealed little to no connection between the intended program goals and behaviors exhibited by colleges. Based on the study findings, policy recommendations were proposed to enhance the effectiveness of the performance-based funding program for the Florida College System.

2. Coveleski, Joshua. A Study of Students’ Perceptions of Natural Disaster Plans and Emergency Preparedness at a Higher Education Institution.

Degree: PhD, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, 2014, Florida State University

Disaster response and emergency preparedness procedures are predicted through an in-depth and unique understanding of planning, mitigation, response, and recovery efforts. It is also contingent on both emergency responders and those impacted by the disaster to comprehend the specific social and geographical challenges of their local environment. Higher education institutions must provide students with a safe and nurturing environment to help with academic and social development. With this increased emphasis on safety, it is imperative that higher education institutions understand their students' perceptions of disaster response and emergency preparedness efforts. This purpose of this study was to utilize transformational leadership theory as a way to explore students' perceptions of natural disaster plans and emergency preparedness efforts at a higher education institution. Qualitative interviews were conducted with students regarding their knowledge of natural disaster and emergency preparedness efforts and through qualitative analysis, 12 themes emerged. The results from this study suggest a disconnect between administrators and students with regards to the effective communication of natural disaster and emergency preparedness information. In conclusion, the unique characteristics of higher education institutions such as governance and structure create a need for the emphasis of emergency preparedness procedures such as preplanning, and mitigation efforts by leadership personnel. Transformational leadership, specifically individual consideration, intellectual stimulation, inspirational motivation and idealized influence, were examined as a possible framework for addressing the characteristics of higher education institutions that limit effective communication of emergency procedures.
