Online Submission, Ed.D. Dissertation, Capella University
This capstone provides readers with an analysis of the role student engagement has in higher education. Student engagement has been studied extensively by many authors, and each has provided a framework for understanding the various approaches to increasing engagement of students. This paper approaches the topic of student engagement by examining the role a Health Services Administration Club plays in the engagement of student's on and off-campus. This study utilized feedback from an online survey provided to current members of the club that were used to gain an understanding of their level of engagement as they participate in activities, and it served as a tool for the design of the attached training manual. The accompanied training manual provides a new approach to increasing student engagement of students by providing leaders and organizers with a framework for development and management of their respective club. The following are appended in the accompanying training manual: (1) Example Club Constitution; (2) Example Meeting Agenda: College Health Services Administration Club; (3) Example Meeting Minutes: Health Services Administration Club Meeting Minutes; (4) Example Bake Sale Flyer; (5) Example Sign-Up Sheet; and (6) Example How Marrow Donation Works & How You Can Save Lives Flyer.
