Burnett, Kristen Slater
ProQuest LLC, D.Ed. Dissertation, University of California, Santa Barbara
The purpose of this study is to delve into, and further understand, the perceptions of higher education administrators when they experience having to simultaneously balance the issues of campus safety and student privacy. The research surveyed approximately 900 (with 147 returns) administrators who self-identified as having a role in incidents of campus crises on their respective campuses. The survey was the starting-point for gathering baseline data that was used to further understand the experiences of the administrators. Following up on the data provided in the survey, qualitative interviews with volunteer administrators helped to expand the limited available research by providing the perspective of the administrator, a perspective that has gone under examined. The data allowed the researcher to build a composite of information that illustrates and describes the perceptions and experiences of administrators as they maneuver their way through moments of crisis. The research provides colleges and universities insight into the perceptions of administrators and the stress of their respective roles.
