Chapter Four: Findings and Analysis
This purpose of this study is to understand how Black alumni from Cornell University, who choose to attend their affinity reunion, make sense of their undergraduate experiences at a PWI. In this chapter, we will explore the undergraduate experiences of Black alumni who graduated from Cornell University as expressed by the participants in an attempt to interpret how their experiences can inform us about their alumni engagement. The analysis has identified 5 superordinate themes and 13 subthemes. The chart below identifies each emergent theme identified from the analysis along with the frequency in appearance of each theme:

goals when it comes to employees; maximizing workplace satisfaction for all; retaining a world class workforce and maintaining an environment of lifetime learning. In order to achieve these goals, employers must actively seek formal and informal employee input. This can be done through the creation of affinity groups. Affinity groups include diversity councils, task teams, issue study groups, focus groups, affinity councils and networking groups. These groups provide a way for employees to…

1. What were the controls (aka constants) of this experiment?

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” implies that beauty is subjective and that one decides what is beautiful and what is not. However, there are things that are objectively beautiful that were created by God. Beauty fits into Christianity because of these inherent beauties, as seen, in nature, in things that are symmetrical, and in things that have order. Inherently beautiful things were created to draw our attention to value and importance in God’s design.
First, God created nature to be…
Presentations have never been my strong suit, whether it is talking about myself in front of a group of people to presenting a complex situation to a class. By taking this course I am hoping that I’ll be able to boost my confidence when it comes to public speaking. I have had to complete many presentation in the past but I have yet to master the ability to present well in front of large groups. The first project that we were assigned in my communication class was to get to know our classmate…
I liked how you engaged the entire group in labeling your drawing not because you did not know but because you wanted more people to participate in the discussion. Importantly, few times you went back to the case making connections between discussed material and patients symptoms described in the case. We definitely need to do this more often. You also had a very nice case presentation this Friday. I am pleased you shared with me in your reflection that you want to advance your case presentation…
On Wednesday, November 11, 2015, I, Anna R. Morrison, was leading my afternoon class, Capstone. Their final assignment was to give a group presentation on the impact of social media. The presentations began around 1:30; each group presenting on the meaning of social media. The presentations were going great as the students had worked very hard with the topic at hand. It was in the second hour of presentations that the reason for this letter presents itself.

Carroll School of Management, group work and the ability to work well with others has been emphasized greatly. This makes sense, because in a professional environment, the ability to communicate, listen and contribute within a group leads to success and the achievement of goals. However, none have gone on as long as this project, making it a more realistic example of working on a team.
Junior year of college is definitely a crazy time, as we are forced to balance heavy workloads with…
members. This is the ideal of an egoless team structure. In the case of Dogs Group, although the structure was egoless, certain members of the team could not agree on what roles the members should have and this led to conflicts between those members who followed the egoless team structure (exhibit designers and educators) and those that wanted to follow more traditionalist mode of team structures…
