Defining integrity as «the combination of attributes and actions that makes people and organizations coherent, consistent, and potentially ethical,» the editor and contributing authors illustrate how student affairs administrators can understand and implement integrity in their institutions. Early chapters explore the organizational integrity of student affairs. Transactional and transformational leadership perspectives are discussed in the second section. Other contributing authors tie education to integrity. In their chapter, Dennis Roberts and Trudy Banta engage in a dialogue about the way student development theory should guide practice, and how its assessment is essential to maintain the integrity of our practice. Sue Saunders and Jennifer Lease Butts consider how we should teach integrity to graduate students and new professionals. Final chapters explore challenges to integrity ranging from those in the normal work routines, such as resident hall directors confronting late night parties or interoffice dynamics, to those faced in extraordinary circumstances such as the ones faced in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Readers of this volume will learn how integrity affects the trustworthiness of their organizations and operations. They will have the opportunity to read about the highest goals and the best practices of leadership, and gain ideas about some practical strategies that can help them deal with challenges to organizational and individual integrity. This is the 135th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Services, An indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals, New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.
A synergistic approach to signal integrity for high-speed digital design This book is designed to provide contemporary readers with an understanding of the emerging high-speed signal integrity issues that are creating roadblocks in digital design. Written by the foremost experts on the subject, it leverages concepts and techniques from non-related fields such as applied physics and microwave engineering and applies them to high-speed digital design—creating the optimal combination between theory and practical applications. Following an introduction to the importance of signal integrity, chapter coverage includes: Electromagnetic fundamentals for signal integrity Transmission line fundamentals Crosstalk Non-ideal conductor models, including surface roughness and frequency-dependent inductance Frequency-dependent properties of dielectrics Differential signaling Mathematical requirements of physical channels S-parameters for digital engineers Non-ideal return paths and via resonance I/O circuits and models Equalization Modeling and budgeting of timing jitter and noise System analysis using response surface modeling Each chapter includes many figures and numerous examples to help readers relate the concepts to everyday design and concludes with problems for readers to test their understanding of the material. Advanced Signal Integrity for High-Speed Digital Designs is suitable as a textbook for graduate-level courses on signal integrity, for programs taught in industry for professional engineers, and as a reference for the high-speed digital designer.
The first book to focus on the electromagnetic basis of signal integrity The Foundations of Signal Integrity is the first of its kind—a reference that examines the physical foundation of system integrity based on electromagnetic theory derived from Maxwell's Equations. Drawing upon the cutting-edge research of Professor Paul Huray's team of industrial engineers and graduate students, it develops the physical theory of wave propagation using methods of solid state and high-energy physics, mathematics, chemistry, and electrical engineering before addressing its application to modern high-speed systems. Coverage includes: All the necessary electromagnetic theory needed for a complete understanding of signal integrity Techniques for obtaining analytic solutions to Maxwell's Equations for ideal materials and boundary conditions Plane electromagnetic waves Plane waves in compound media Transmission lines and waveguides Ideal models vs. real-world systems Complex permittivity of propagating media Surface roughness Advanced signal integrity Signal integrity simulations Problem sets for each chapter With its thorough coverage of this relatively new discipline, the book serves as an ideal textbook for senior undergraduate and junior graduate students, as well as a resource for practicing engineers in this burgeoning field. At the end of each section, it typically stimulates the reader with open-ended questions that might lead to future theses or dissertation research.
Here, pioneer Trudy Banta illuminates the many facets of assessment in colleges and universities during the past two decades. Addressing the principles of good assessment practice, she gives an insider?s perspective and shares the larger questions and answers encountered in assessment. In the final section, she looks at assessment outside the United States. This valuable publication will give you a broader, deeper appreciation of the successes, snares, and future of outcomes assessment.
