College students are particularly vulnerable to making poor financial decisions. One method of addressing personal finances and financial stress among students of higher education is through university based financial education programs. Student Financial Literacy: Program Development presents effective strategies to assist in the implementation or the enhancement of a program as a tool to improve students’ educational experience and financial well-being. It presents the key components of financial education programs designed to address the growing concerns associated with high levels of debt and low levels of financial literacy among college students. “Student Financial Literacy: Campus-Based Program Development is packed with financial education and counseling information and guidance. It was very difficult to write this review as I wanted to share ALL the excellent direction this book provides... The editors and contributing authors have developed an excellent resource for not only those interested in developing or enhancing a campus-based financial education program but also for anyone involved in financial education, counseling, and planning.” -Rebecca J. Travnichek, Family Financial Education Specialist, University of Missouri Extension Journal of Financial Counseling and Planning

How do we interrupt the current paradigms of sexism in the academy? How do we construct a new and inclusive gender paradigm that resists the dominant values of the patriarchy? And why are these agendas important not just for women, but for higher education as a whole? These are the questions that these extensive and rich analyses of the historical and contemporary roles of women in higher education— as administrators, faculty, students, and student affairs professionals—seek constructively to answer. In doing so they address the intersection of gender and women’s other social identities, such as of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, and ability. This book addresses the experiences and position of women students, from application to college through graduate school, and the barriers they encounter; the continuing inequalities in the rates of promotion and progression of women and other marginalized groups to positions of authority, and the gap in earnings between men and women; and pays particular attention to how race and other social markers impact such disparities, contextualizing them across all institutional types. Written collaboratively by an intergenerational group of women, men, and transgender people with different social identities, feminist perspectives, and professional identities— and who, in the process, built upon each other’s work—this volume constitutes a call to educators and scholars to work toward centering feminist and other marginalized perspectives in their practice and research in order to equitably address the evolving complexities of college and university life. Employing a wide range of theoretical lenses, examining a variety of models of practice, and giving voice to a diversity of personal experiences through narrative, this is a major contribution to the scholarship on women in higher education. This is a book for all women in the academy who want to better understand their experience, and to dismantle the remaining barriers of sexism and oppression—for themselves, and future generations of students.

President Carter has written importantly about his spiritual life and faith. In this book, he offers a personal consideration of "moral values" as they relate to the important issues of the day. He puts forward a passionate defense of separation of church and state, and a strong warning of where the country is heading as the lines between politics and rigid religious fundamentalism are blurred. He reacts to some trends involving both the religious and the political worlds as they have increasingly become intertwined, and including some of the most crucial and controversial issues of the day--frequently encapsulated under "moral values." They include preemptive war, women's rights, terrorism, civil liberties, homosexuality, abortion, the death penalty, science and religion, environmental degradation, nuclear arsenals, America's global image, fundamentalism, and the melding of religion and politics. Sustained by his faith, Carter assesses these issues in a forceful and unequivocal but balanced and courageous way.--From publisher description.

Ich Bin Autistin Aber Ich Zeige Es Nicht Leben Mit Dem Asperger Syndrom

Einfach ein großartiges Buch: Die Tochter erhält die Diagnose Asperger und die Mutter erkennt sich - endlich - in dieser Diagnose wieder. Sie beschreibt im Rückblick ihre Lebensgeschichte und reflektiert es nun in Kenntnis der Asperger-Diagnose. Ernst, lustig und voller Anekdoten. Dabei immer spannend, denn man wartet darauf, wie der nächste Lebensabschnitt bis zur Hochschullehrerin mit drei Kindern verlaufen wird - und welchen Anteil das Asperger-Syndrom dabei hat. Ein Extrakapitel widmet sie den Ereignissen, als Asperger-Autistin Kinder zu haben. Sehr offen, in klaren Worten und schnörkellos beschrieben - und dabei doch sehr ins Detail gehend. Sie beschreibt Gefühle intensiver, als so mancher Mensch ohne Asperger. Sie muss die Gefühle für sich genau beschreiben, um sie zu verstehen. "Auch wenn es 38 Jahre lang gedauert hat - ich kann gar nicht deutlich genug sagen, was für eine Erleichterung es war, mich endlich selbst zu finden!" Ein gelungenes Ende findet das Buch mit zahlreichen Checklisten für alle Lebensbereiche. Hier gibt Liane H. Willey viele wichtige Hinweise, worauf man als Asperger-Autist achten sollte (bei der Ausbildung, der Arbeit, in Beziehungen etc.). Mit einem sehr persönlichen Vorwort von Tony Attwood Das Buch: „Meine Tochter hat Asperger!" Liane Willey hatte von dieser Krankheit noch nie gehört, und nun erfährt sie: Unter Asperger oder „High-function-Autismus" leiden viele Menschen, ohne es zu wissen - „besondere" Menschen, die zu zurückgezogenem oder egozentrischem Verhalten neigen, die oft hoch begabt sind, aber an Selbstwertproblemen, Überempfindlichkeit, Unsicherheit, Verzweiflung leiden. Sie fühlen sich mitunter wie „Ausländer im eigenen Land" oder wie „Außerirdische, die auf einem falschen Planeten gelandet sind". Die Diagnose ihrer Tochter verändert ihr Leben, denn Liane Willey begreift, dass sie seit Jahrzehnten mit den gleichen Symptomen zu kämpfen hatte: „Ich kann die Erleichterung nicht ausdrücken, die ich empfand, als ich schließlich realisierte, dass meine Tochter und ich nicht an einer Geisteskrankheit oder einer gespaltenen Persönlichkeit litten oder etwas Ähnlichem. Wir haben Asperger. Damit können wir leben! Wir können unsere Ziele und Träume erreichen, und wir können unser Leben weiterführen - mit Optimismus und Hoffnung. Wie aufregend die Erkenntnis, dass ich ganz einfach Dinge anders sehe, anders auffasse, anders empfange als andere und dass das so in Ordnung ist. Es ist meine Normalität." Liane Willey erzählt ihre Lebensgeschichte von der frühen Kindheit über die Schul- und Collegezeit bis zum Leben als Berufstätige und Mutter von drei Kindern. Sie macht deutlich, wie die Welt von einer „Aspie" erlebt wird - von den Strategien, mit denen es ihr gelang, ihren eigenen Weg zu finden, aber auch von dem oft erheblichen Leidensdruck, der damit einherging. In einem Anhang folgen praktische Hinweise „von immenser Präzision, was die Vorschläge (und Erfahrungen) angeht, im Alltag Probleme zu bewältigen, die sich einem Menschen mit Asperger-Autismus stellen" (Ulrich Rabenschlag). Ein persönliches Buch, das die Menschen, die Asperger haben - einer großen europäischen Studie zufolge in Deutschland pro Jahrgang ca. 5000 Menschen -, in ihrer Besonderheit versteht und ihnen Achtung und Sympathie entgegenbringt. Ein spannender Fallbericht nicht nur für Betroffene, sondern auch für Eltern, Erzieher, Lehrer, Psychologen und Ärzte.

This monograph considers the role of peer leadership in first-year seminars and how they help create successful transitions for incoming students. It explains how they provide meaningful leadership opportunities through various activities on campus. The monograph begins with the history of an educator's experience directing one of the initial first-year seminar programs in the country. The opening chapter helps define the terms of peer educators; peer helper; student paraprofessional; and student assistant. Chapter 2 offers a discussion of leadership education. Leadership models from five institutions are used to support the premise that a new kind of leader is developing among students serving as peer leaders. Chapter 3 provides a primer on the essentials of implementing a successful peer leadership program. Chapter 4 explores the building blocks of success to any peer leader program: recruitment, selection, and training. Chapter 5 explores other roles peer leaders assume on campus. Chapter 6 looks at efforts to integrate peer education with new technologies. Chapter 7 reviews data collected on 40 programs. Chapter 8 summarizes the ideas and presents recommendations for future direction. (Contains 2 tables, 2 figures, 6 appendixes, and 143 references.) (JDM)
