Recommended Reorganization of the ASU Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps: Insights from Leadership and Gender Analysis

Description

Based upon personal involvement from August 2010 to July 2014 as a Marine Option Midshipman within the ASU Naval Reserves Officer Training Corps (NROTC), being a student of leadership training within my degree plan, and gender difference research I conducted,

Based upon personal involvement from August 2010 to July 2014 as a Marine Option Midshipman within the ASU Naval Reserves Officer Training Corps (NROTC), being a student of leadership training within my degree plan, and gender difference research I conducted, this creative project addresses potential issues that reside within the ASU NROTC and the ways in which the program overall can be changed for the Marine Options in order to bring about proper success and organization. In order to officially become a Marine within the Unites States Marine Corps, it is necessary for Marine Option students to fulfill Officer Candidate School (OCS) at Quantico, Virginia. As the first female to go through OCS as a midshipman from the ASU NROTC, I found that there is an inadequate amount of preparation and training given in regards to the gender differences and what is to be expected for successful completion. I will offer a brief history regarding the NROTC across the Unites States and the ASU NROTC itself. These subjects will cover the program layouts as well as the leadership training that is required and provided within it and the ways in which this is conducted. I will then compare and contrast this to the leadership training given to me within my study of Leadership and Ethics regarding the transformational leadership, gender-based leadership, and coercive leadership. Finally, I end my thesis with a reflection of personal experiences taken away from these avenues and offer recommendations to better equip the ASU NROTC program in having successful retention and success of the female Marine Option midshipman.

The Organizational Workings of Student Housing at ASU Tempe

This thesis project will be investigating the interactions and organizational theory within the student housing market at Arizona State University. The focus of the project will be around the partnership that makes up many of the communities, the public company known as American Campus Communities, and the auxiliary of Arizona State University Housing. The paper will analyze the organization through the four frames outlined by Bolman and Deal’s Reframing Organizations. These four are the structural, human resource, political, and symbolic frames. The paper will confront two main issues found in the organization. The first is the frequent turnover of staff. The second will be the separation between the departments, leading to unstable communication. Solutions will be proposed that could take some pressure off the problems that are identified. Compensation for staff and adjustments to summer living may allow retention to improve. Adjusted training and top-level management communication and interaction may improve the stark separation between areas of the organization. Analyzing these issues and solutions through the organizational frames allows us to better understand the reasoning behind and possible effects of any decision. This project has been very insightful, and I learned a lot with my studies and am proud to be a part of this organization and its mission to serve the students.
