1. Walters-Powell, Robin K. THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL NETWORKS ON THE COMING-OUT PROCESS FOR LESBIAN, GAY, AND BISEXUAL INDIVIDUALS.

Degree: Doctor of Education (EdD), Education, 2016, University of Findlay

As individuals move through life, there are developed and identified areas referred to as social networks that provide support and assistance. It is through these social networks that identity formation occurs, these broad categories are highly influential in defining self-concept, which is developed through an affiliation (whether it be positive or negative) with the following groups: family, peers, education, spirituality, and the broader community/society. For those individuals that identify as Lesbian, Gay, or Bisexual (LGB) there are challenges that exist in their development that are unique to them as compared to what the general population experiences. LGB individuals are an extremely vulnerable subset of the population, particularly given the degree of homophobia in our society. Adolescents who are struggling with issues of sexual orientation face incredible challenges and lack many of the fundamental support systems available to their heterosexual peers (Gonsiorek, 1988). All of these identified social networks of this developmental period lend themselves to the overall identity formation of each adolescent. A positive identity must integrate one’s sexual identity into it (Baker, 2002). For LGB individuals who are struggling to identify, define, and make sense of feelings of attraction toward members of the same sex, adolescence may be a particularly challenging time in their lives. This qualitative study consisted of 18 participants that discussed their coming-out process in the context of supportive and non-supportive social networks. It explored the difference between the high school and college environments, identifying risk and protective factors that impacted this important milestone in their sexual identity development. Several themes were identified around the process of coming-out; these were fear, shift of social networks (high school to college), and search for community and acceptance. Throughout these identified areas there was further acknowledgement of factors within the social networks that impacted the coming-out process, that are explored further in the following narrative. Identifying non-judgmental environments where both high school and college students can explore the possible intersection and acceptance between their religion/spirituality and their sexuality would minimize many of the issues that surround the fear that is associated with the coming-out process and lead to a more affirming, supportive environment for the LGB individual.

2. Morris-Smith, Elizabeth Rachelle, Morris. An Examination of the Alignment of the Proposed Ohio School Counselor Evaluation System with the Views and Perceptions of School Administrators and Counselors on the Role of School Counselors in Northwest Ohio.

Degree: Doctor of Education (EdD), Education, 2016, University of Findlay

The Ohio School Counselor Association (OSCA) developed a system to evaluate school counselors in Ohio. The evaluation is comparable to the systems currently in place for Ohio teachers and administrators. The Ohio School Counselor Evaluation System uses the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) national standards to which many school systems do not adhere. Assigning counselors duties that do not utilize their skills or adhere to the ASCA national model could pose a challenge to those counselors when they are evaluated using the proposed system created from the ASCA national model. This study examines: 1) the difficulties inherent in developing a system for school counselors that is objective, similar or equivalent to that of the teachers, principals and superintendents, and 2) the degree to which school counselor roles and responsibilities reflect the tool and therefore by default, the ASCA National Model proposed to which most schools do not adhere. Advisors/Committee Members: Scoles, Michael (Committee Chair).

3. Rogers, Ron B, Dr. AN EXAMINATION OF THE OPPORTUNITIES AND OBSTACLES OF PARENT ENGAGEMENT.

Degree: Doctor of Education (EdD), Education, 2018, University of Findlay

The purpose of this qualitative study was to find the opportunities, obstacles, and general experiences of school administrators, parents, and community regarding parent engagement. This study used a qualitative method of inquiry to examine engagement practices including district artifacts such as social media and focus groups. The data gathered from focus group interviews was analyzed through Epstein’s six-tiered typology framework. Findings of this research demonstrated important points considering relationships and open communication which may help school leaders better understand the functions of parent engagement in their communities and point to specific practices to maximize the engagement between their institutions and stakeholders.
