Doctoral Degrees

Stephen G. Atwater *

Ph.D. Educational Leadership: Interdisciplinary Program

B.A., University of Pennsylvania, 1983. M.Ed., University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1994

Thesis: A Description of the Relationship Between Process Management and the Quality Schools Model in Three Rural Alaska School Districts

This thesis describes the role of process management in the implementation of the Quality Schools Model of educational reform in three rural Alaska school districts. The study suggests that although process management is valued, it is not fully in practice and has an indirect effect on the districts’ results.

Major Professors: Dr. Eric C. Madsen and Dr. John Monahan

Dale LaVerne Nelson Cope *

Ph.D. Business Strategies and Educational Leadership: Interdisciplinary Program

B.S., Oregon State University, 1976. M.Ed., University of Puget Sound, 1997

Thesis: The Quality Schools Model of Education Reform: A Description of Knowledge Management Beliefs and Practices Using Baldrige in Education Criteria

This study suggested ambivalence and transfer difficulty in the implementation of the Quality Schools Model of education reform, with significant large differences between beliefs and practice for teachers and administrators. A structural model showed knowledge management practices had a direct or indirect effect on all other Baldrige factors except staff focus.

Major Professors: Dr. John Monahan and Dr. David O. Porter

Thesis: A Description of Baldrige in Education Leadership Concepts within the Alaska Quality Schools Model of Education

This research examines the Quality Schools Model in three rural Alaska school districts. It reviews leadership practices that transform hierarchical leadership into shared leadership with ownership throughout.
