1. Lin, Hsien Hong. Why Taiwanese companies and foundations donate to public colleges and universities in Taiwan: An investigation of donation incentives, strategies, and decision-making processes.

Degree: PhD, College and Graduate School of Education, Health and Human Services / School of Foundations, Leadership and Administration, 2009, Kent State University

The purpose of this investigation was to build the blueprint of Taiwanese public higher education’s fundraising. This study applied three surveys (NSH, NSC, and NSF) to three populations’ samples (public universities, corporations, and foundations in Taiwan) as well as qualitative interviews toward these three populations in order to explore Taiwan’s private organizations donations to higher education institutions. After fifteen months of data collections, this researcher obtained thirty-five samples out of fifty-five public universities, 151 survey samples and twenty-seven interview participants for Taiwanese corporations, and ninety-nine survey samples and twenty-one interview participants for Taiwanese foundations. The findings in this study suggested that corporations in Taiwan were inclined to give funds to public universities with the capacity to improve or strengthen companies’ benefit-obtaining potential; foundations in Taiwan have an affinity for supporting public higher education institutions with the function to enhance or perform social justices and values for them. The investigation data suggested that Taiwanese public universities’ fundraising people should balance their institutions in different field developments in order to further extend or outreach funding sources in diversity. Advisors/Committee Members: Kretovics, Mark A. (Advisor).

2. Blundell, Gregory Edgar. A DISRUPTION OF ONLINE LEARNING COURSE DESIGN:COMPARING SELF-REPORTED LEVELS OF FACULTY SATISFACTION WITH ONLINE COURSES CREATED APPLYING THE 2011-2013 EDITION OF THE QUALITY MATTERS™ RUBRIC STANDARDS TO THOSE ONLINE COURSES CREATED WITHOUT.

Degree: PhD, College and Graduate School of Education, Health and Human Services / School of Foundations, Leadership and Administration, 2015, Kent State University

Faculty satisfaction with designing online courses matters a great deal, for a number of reasons.The purpose of this study was to investigate whether applying the Quality MattersTM Rubric [QMR] as a foundation for online course design increases faculty’s self-reported levels of satisfaction with online courses designed using the QMR, in comparison to faculty’s self-reported levels of satisfaction with online courses that were not designed using the QMR.The local and national importance of this study is fully underscored by an increased emphasis from government, employers, and other stakeholders, on the rigor and role faculty play in creating efficacy through the medium of instruction, particularly online instruction. This study explored and answered the question: Does the design mode make a difference to faculty’s self-reported levels of satisfaction in terms of online course design?The Online Faculty Satisfaction Survey [OFSS], originally developed by Bolliger & Wasilik (2009), was augmented as the Online Faculty Satisfaction Survey-Revised [OFSS-R], and was distributed throughout private higher education institutions in the state of Ohio.There is a clear link between an increased level of faculty satisfaction and an increased level of student satisfaction in their experiences throughout online course. Therefore, it was important for this researcher to establish whether the QMR provided different levels of satisfaction when compared to other instructional design models, and the hypotheses were established to test these differences. However, analysis found no significant difference in faculty self-reported satisfaction levels between the QMR and other instructional design methods in terms of designing online courses. For this researcher, this shall be a matter of future study. Advisors/Committee Members: Kretovics, Mark, A (Committee Chair).

3. Eckert, Erica L. Examining the Environment: The Development of a Survey Instrument to Assess Student Perceptions of the University Outdoor Physical Campus.

Degree: PhD, College and Graduate School of Education, Health and Human Services / School of Foundations, Leadership and Administration, 2012, Kent State University

The purpose of this study was to develop a reliable and valid survey instrument to measure student perceptions of the outdoor physical campus environment. Using campus planning and environments literature and expert consultation, a survey instrument was developed to measure student satisfaction with the outdoor campus environment and the importance they attributed to the outdoor campus environment. The instrument contained items focused on elements of the outdoor campus environment derived from the literature along with specific items identified by experts in campus planning and consulting. Campus architecture professionals engaged in expert review of the instrument to ensure it satisfied the content standard for validity. Prior to survey deployment, student focus groups and cognitive interviews were utilized to ensure the instrument could be understood and readily answered by the field test sample. Feedback from students provided strong evidence for response process validity. The survey was deployed between September and November of 2011 to 7,978 students at eight public universities in Ohio. Results of the validity and reliability analysis indicated that the Outdoor Physical Campus Assessment collected valid and reliable student perception data for the field test administration. xxx Advisors/Committee Members: Kretovics, Mark A.
