ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Toledo
This study examined the professional reading habits of Senior Housing Officers (SHOs) at ACUHO-I member institutions in the Great Lakes region, which encompasses the states of Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana. The findings were based on data from the survey responses of SHOs at 71 colleges and universities across the Great Lakes region of the ACUHO-I organization. This study found that: (a) SHOs believe that professional reading is important to their work; (b) SHOs utilize a wide selection of materials to inform their professional practice; (c) more SHOs engage in professional reading in certain important topical areas than in others; (d) SHOs are spending time engaged in professional reading; (e) the amount of time SHOs are engaged in professional reading differs based on personal characteristics; and (f) the amount of time SHOs engage in professional reading differs based on institutional characteristics.
