Using a Mixed Methods Content Analysis to Analyze Mission Statements from Colleges of Engineering
Creamer, Elizabeth G.; Ghoston, Michelle
Journal of Mixed Methods Research, v7 n2 p110-120 Apr 2013
A mixed method design was used to conduct a content analysis of the mission statements of colleges of engineering to map inductively derived codes with the EC 2000 outcomes and to test if any of the codes were significantly associated with institutions with reasonably strong representation of women. Most institution's (25 of 48) mission statement had two or fewer of the outcomes endorsed by the accrediting agency. The diversity code was significantly related to the representation of women, but is not one of the outcomes identified by the accrediting agency. The research demonstrates how mixed methods can be applied to content analysis. (Contains 3 tables and 1 note.)
