    Staying current after graduation : a survey of social work alumni by Hacker, Linda

    How do our alumni stay current once they graduate and are away from academic information resources? Very few studies have addressed how alumni stay current in their field after graduation. This research surveyed the graduate and undergraduate Social Work alumni of The College at Brockport in asking key questions. Are you able to stay current with research, especially without access to article databases? Do you receive support from your employer to stay current? Does this include money/time off for participating in Continuing Education Programs (CEP), conferences or accessing article databases? This paper looks at the methods for, and importance of, staying current and analyzes results from a survey and makes recommendations for graduates, departments and librarians regardless of profession.

    A score unsettled : a reexamination of athletic success and alumni giving by Thorne, Tyler

    In recent years, state appropriations to higher education decreased. In response, universities of all sizes, both public and private, are forced to shift many of the associated burdens to their students in the form of increasing tuition rates and decreasing institutional quality to cut costs. As such, increasing alumni giving rates is essential to all institutions of higher education as they seek to maintain high academic standards, attract the best prospects, and foster future growth and financial stability. There is a large body of research seeking to address these pressing issues in higher education, many focusing on athletics as a stimulus for alumni giving. This paper builds upon the existing literature and ultimately answers the question: how does athletic success affect alumni giving? A fifteen-year panel data set comprised of 65 Division I universities is examined and the results show an insignificant relationship between athletic success and alumni giving. However, the analysis informs the influence of the macroeconomy and parameters for institutional quality. While athletics do not provide any substantial predictive power in this paper, the significance of other explanatory variables justifies this re-examination of athletics and alumni giving and explicitly highlights further avenues for research.

    Which activities matter in college : an analysis of continued leadership participation using Colorado College alumni records by Levinson, Kathryn Michelle

    While leadership experts have found compelling evidence to support the argument that the undergraduate years, and the institutions themselves play a pivotal role in developing leadership capabilities, colleges and universities need to question whether or not they fit this profile. Colorado College, one of seven schools in the nation under a block system, has never been the focus of such investigations, and while some parameters may include it by default, the question that remains is: do the results found in these studies on leadership development for non-block institutions still hold when tested against the unconventional elements intrinsic to a block system school like Colorado College? Even though this investigation does not include the alumni records from similar non-block institutions, the results found in this study will hopefully provide enough information to signal if the theories presented in the literature are applicable to and accurately representative of Colorado College’s demographic.
