The concept of sustainable residential college: a study on the provision of facilities in the public university residential colleges in Malaysia

In the context of developing a residential area such as the development of residential colleges, Maslow's Theory of Needs coincides with the physiological stage of the basic human needs level involving the residence. This stage is the first need that needs to be met perfectly before the other needs can be achieved. According to Adam (2015), physiological needs are the most basic needs that must be met by an individual. In this context, a comfortable residential college is a necessity for university students as a human being to continue their survival throughout the university. If the student's residence is uncomfortable and not conducive then it will disturb the entire life of the student and consequently can affect the learning process at the university. According to Abdullah & Hassim (2010), the construction of these residential colleges is intended to provide shelter to students and with the presence of residential colleges, accommodation problems can be solved especially for students who are far from home or abroad. Therefore, Maslow's Theory of Needs based on the basic needs namely the physiological needs by providing a comfortable and conducive residence is appropriate as the underlying theoretical study of the concept of sustainable residential college.

University technical colleges

On the hon. Gentleman’s suggestion of a pause, there is a natural pause in a sense, because there are certain times at which we solicit bids for new university technical colleges. We are currently considering what the appropriate time will be to open up a bidding round, and I can assure him that there will be a number of months before that when we can consider all the lessons from this and other experiences. 29

Military, University, and Police Agency Command and Staff Colleges in the United States

Military, University, and Police Agency Command and Staff Colleges in the United States

The general purpose of command and staff colleges is to prepare those who are tasked to become leaders by their organization and those who want to enhance their abilities that are already in a leadership role, to function in the role of leadership appropriately. The military branches and public safety agencies (especially law enforcement agencies) train and educate those already in leadership positions, in addition to those scheduled to advance into a higher rank of leadership and management. There are numerous theories of leadership, but they mostly apply to issues in the role of management rather than to leadership issues. The literature on leadership in the field of management is plentiful, but in the area of public safety leadership, the applicable literature is not nearly as abundant. This is the value of university command and staff colleges for public safety settings (Haberfeld, 2013). The author believes it is an even greater value when the CSC is established within a police agency where the pragmatic aspects of leadership can be readily shared by the practitioners involved in classroom interactions. The university CSC models mostly benefit public safety agencies and leaders, and the military CSC models mostly benefit the military leaders. The military models located in the United States (US) are discussed first.

Academic impediments students with visual impairments encounter in the Colleges of University of Rwanda

Academic impediments students with visual impairments encounter in the Colleges of University of Rwanda

The above findings were supported by a research done in Kenyan teacher training colleges 2010 whereby findings revealed that students with VI faced challenges during teaching practice. The greatest challenge as revealed by the study was in the area of general preparation for teaching. For effective teaching, preparation was paramount. Students with visual impairments lacked books in Braille for preparation. They also needed to present their schemes of work and lessons plans in print for approval by their tutors who could not be able to read them in Braille. That meant that those students had to look for readers among the sighted students who were equally busy preparing for the same. There was also a need for the students to rely on their colleagues to help them in preparing teaching/learning resources which were usually visual. In most cases they found themselves teaching without teaching/learning resources which would lead to being penalized by their assessors (Nasiforo, 2010).

Collaborative provision within UK higher education: perceptions of stakeholders of UK and Sri Lankan private colleges offering university degrees in business and management

Collaborative provision within UK higher education: perceptions of stakeholders of UK and Sri Lankan private colleges offering university degrees in business and management

In Sri Lanka gaining accurate data on the whole HE provision (public and private) is difficult, but the data available on public HE can be considered reliable. As stated earlier, Sri Lanka has only 17 state-funded ‘public’ universities for a population of 19.5 million. Due to the limited number of places in state funded universities, only 17% of those who qualify for university education gain admission. As a result, each year more than 100,000 qualified students are forced out of the state HE system (Jayawardena, 2012). The majority of students who do not secure a place in a public university choose to study in private HE institutions. But the data on private HE institutions is not readily available. Peiris and Ratnasekera stated that there were around 50 companies engaged in the business of education in Sri Lanka (Peiris and Ratnasekera, 2007). These private HE institutions (or companies) either offer professional and/or vocational qualifications or offer degrees in collaboration with overseas HE institutions. Given this background, the findings support the arguments that see the growth of private institutions as a phenomenon of excess demand (James 1993; Tilak, 2009). The phenomenon of excess demand occurs when the private HE sector enters a market to accommodate the growing demand for HE that has not been met by the state funded HE system.

An Investigation of the Impact of Student Government Involvement at one Public Historically Black University on the Career Choice of African American Student Participants

learning and development) as well referencing Pascerella and Terenzini’s (2005) work, How College Affects Students, which notes that “individual student characteristics are likely to play a major role in different dimensions of [college] career choice” (p.465). Astin (1997) believes that the more students are socially involved in campus life, the more likely they will persist and graduate. Pascerella and Terenzini (2005) also identify students’ major field of study as a major determinant of future occupation, as well as addressing the effect of institutional racial composition on career choice. The influence of attending an HBCU on African-American students was highlighted by the authors (Pascerella & Terenzini, 2005) and was also contrasted to the level of students’ co- curricular involvement and its effects on career choice during college. The authors (Pascerella & Terenzini, 2005) uncovered research that suggested that certain types of cocurricular involvement contributes to the choice of a career (p. 517), noting that “choice of a career as a lawyer, was enhanced by being elected to a student office” (p. 517). Pascerella and Terenzini (2005) noted that “overall, it is difficult to form a firm conclusion about the impact of attending a historically Black institution on African Americans’ career aspirations…[although] Black colleges appear to enhance the career aspirations of [their] students” (p. 485).

“Role and development of Higher education system in Jammu and Kashmir”

“Role and development of Higher education system in Jammu and Kashmir”

According to the census report of 1901, there was one high school in Srinagar, 16 primary schools and 19 indigenous branch schools in the valley. The first high school in Jammu and Srinagar came into existence in 1890 and 1892 respectively. College education was available only outside the state and very few families could afford the expense while others could not avail of the opportunity. As the residents of Kashmir were loath to leave their homes to go to the Punjab or elsewhere for receiving training in institutions there, alternative arrangements were made in the State. Colleges were established in Srinagar and Jammu in 1905 and 1907 respectively. Sri Pratap College was the first college in Srinagar established in the year 1905. The College was affiliated to the Banaras Hindu University and was open to both men and women but it remained predominantly a male institution.

Evaluation Indicators and Method of Disciplinary Competitiveness of Colleges and Universities: An Example of Peking University

Evaluation Indicators and Method of Disciplinary Competitiveness of Colleges and Universities: An Example of Peking University

From the perspective of evaluation indicators, they are not only the absolute indicators of scientific research output but also the relative impact indicators to determine global influence. Scientific research competitiveness should be composed of scientific research productivity, scientific research influence, scientific research innovation, and scientific research development [12]. Based on four dimensions of topics, papers, patents, and scientific research achievements, Wang evaluated research competitiveness of 141 civilian-run regular colleges and universities and 275 non-government funded undergraduate independent institutes in China [13]. Deng's evaluation on the research competitiveness in the philosophy and social sciences departments of universities followed this basis, in addition to two indicators, namely, the monographs and the research reports submitted to the relevant departments [14]. Li et al proposed innovation of the university discipline competitiveness under the background of Double First-Rate from three aspects, such as academic teams, scientific research, and teaching outcomes [15]. Qiu and Ou used the quantity of papers included by ESI database indicating scientific research productivity and the quantity of patent of invention indicating scientific research creativity in research competitiveness evaluation [16].
