This study examined the variables of socioeconomic
status, racial identity, black-white interaction, and previous
school experience as they relate to black women's choice
of academic institutions, contrasting the characteristics
of those women attending a predominantly black college
with those of women attending a predominantly white state
university. The institutions used in this study were
Tuskegee Institute and The University of Alabama, both of
which are relatively old and traditional and are located
in the deep south.

For centuries art and literature have been utilized
to guide and define the beliefs of society. One of the most
important literary sources designed to instruct and enlighten
is the Bible. The Christian Bible as we know it
today derived from the Hebrew Bible, which was translated
into Greek in the second century. There were a few books,
known as the Apocrypha, which were not in the Hebrew Bible
but were included in the Greek translation. The Apocrypha
consisted of fifteen books of didactic writings, some of
which were in narrative form. It is these narrative stories
that contain lessons of proper conduct in accordance with
the religious beliefs of Hebrew culture. It is the story of
Susanna and the Elders from the Apocryphal Book of Daniel
that comprises the subject of this thesis.
Artistically the story of Susanna and the Elders has
been depicted with specific intentions, for visual pleasure
and didactic instruction. Particularly in the sixteenth and
seventeenth centuries, this story was utilized to guide and
express societal beliefs of the gender roles of men and
women. The Biblical figure of Susanna contained the morals
and values that every woman was to maintain within her own
life. Images of Susanna were intended as visual reminders
to women of the proper behavior expected of them. Chapter 2
will discuss how Susanna's story and its images reflect the
sixteenth and seventeenth century beliefs of feminine behavior.
The discussion will continue in Chapter 3 by addressing
how certain images of Susanna are within the tradition
of representing the male-desired ideal of a woman.
Although traditionally the art of Susanna's story
has been an educational tool and representation of feminine
beauty, there are some works that go beyond this tradition
to address the art/viewer relationship. Chapter 4 will complete
the examination of Susanna's evolution from the passive
traditional depiction to active interaction.

This research was conducted as part of the Women in Public Relations project of the
European Public Relations Education and Research Association (EUPRERA), which aims to
document the realities of women practicing the profession in different countries. Based on an
exploratory and qualitative design, this research aimed to fill a lack of data available about the gender
issues faced by women working in public relations in the province of Québec and to compare these
realities to what has been observed elsewhere in North America, and other national contexts around
the world. Keeping with the framework of the Women in PR project, interviews with 15 Frenchspeaking
women working in PR in Québec were conducted to gain a better understanding of the
gender issues that characterize women’s lived experience of PR work, office and workplace culture,
and perceptions and stereotypes associated with the leadership styles in this field.

Responsibility center management (RCM) is a market-based budget model that may benefit certain academic institutions. While there are supporters and opponents of the model, there is a lack of hard evidence about the potential impact of RCM on a variety of institutional variables, hence the need for this study. This study brought together the variables, “fall enrollment,” “graduation rate,” “retention,” and “financial aid,” informed by IPEDS data, to examine quantitatively changes relating to RCM implementation. Data indicates that the implementation of RCM had a positive relationship with these variables. While these outcomes may encourage the implementation of RCM, the individual goals of an institution need to be considered before the decision to use RCM is made.

This study, the first detailed and systematic investigation
of the Ostracoda of late Cretaceous age in Alabama,
results in the identification of thirty-six species of ostracods,
including one new genus and five new species, from
the type locality of the Bluffport Marl Member of the Demopolis
Formation in Sumter County, Alabama. The genus Cytheromorpha
is reported from the Cretaceous for the first time.
Samples from the Bluffport at localities other than the type
locality indicate no significant faunal difference from that
of the type locality. There appears to be no difference between
ostracod faunas of the Bluffport Member and the Demopolis
(restricted). Veenia ozanana (Israelsky) was used by
this writer as a guide to the Bluffport Member because it
was not found higher than this horizon in Alabama.
