ASHE Directory of Doctoral Dissertations.
Bensimon, Estela, Comp.
A directory of 173 doctoral dissertations in progress or completed in the early 1980s at 36 universities is presented that covers 7 areas related to the study of higher education. The directory was compiled by the ASHE Committee on Graduate Students, based on a survey of U.S. and Canadian professors of graduate programs in higher education. Each entry identifies the title of the dissertation, the author, the sponsoring professor, the university, and the date. The topical areas are as follows: organizational forms and ethos, administrative behavior and factors, policy and planning, environmental/external factors, academic processes and factors, curriculum/learning and teaching, and educational foundations. The names and addresses of authors willing to provide copies of their research proposal are included, along with a list of institutions participating in the dissertation survey. Summary data are appended on the characteristics of graduate students responding to the survey. Responses were received from 173 students from 36 universities with advanced programs in the study of higher education. Of the 173 respondents, all except three were completing requirements toward the Ed.D. or Ph.D. (SW)
