AbstractThe alleviation of poverty in Latin America has largely relied upon social protection programs in the form of conditional cash transfers. SDG 1 provides a space for such programs to be considered as part of the global sustainable development effort within its own Indicator 1.3.1 which measures social protection coverage. This paper uses that framework as a model to examine programs in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and Panama on the basis of poverty alleviation as defined by Indicator 1.3.1. By using the UNECLAC’s database of Non-Contributory Social Protection Programs in conjunction with the World Bank Atlas of Social Protection I narrowed down my focus to a change in percent coverage over time which is constructed using variables from the aforementioned databases. The ensuing results show gradual increases in coverage for Brazil’s Bolsa Familia, Mexico’s Oportunidades/Progresas, and Panama’s Red de Oportunidades accompanied by decreases in coverage for Argentina’s Jefas y Jefes and Chile’s Solidario. Although these results show a commitment to poverty alleviation as per SDG 1 the overall picture is mixed due to incomplete databases, limited range of disaggregated data, and the lack of consensus on a capability-based definition of poverty.

Measuring the incessant need of Social Media as a marketing and communication tool in a small camp business.Brown, Darilyn (2014-12-01)This project was created to examine Facebook, Twitter, and Constant Contact as a communication and marketing tool in a small camp business. Upon revealing how the three tools contribute to the businesses marketing and communication efforts, a social media strategy plan will be created based on the results. As social media and email marketing are said to have many effects on a company, primarily positive and beneficial, this research takes an unbiased approach to how it contributes to the business’ marketing and communication efforts. The Human Centered Design and Social Presence Theory will be used to help illustrate how my proposed social media strategy can be implemented to create an optimal user experience. Qualitative methods will also be utilized in the research and review of the business’ online marketing and communication activity. The overall goal of the project is to review how Facebook, Twitter, and Constant Contact on tribute to a business, how the business utilizes the platforms it is provided, and finally how these platforms can/should be used by creating a proposed social media strategy.
Social facilitators of and barriers to community college transfer student successFennimore, Lauren (2019-05)Students who transfer to four-year institutions from community colleges often encounter difficulty within their classes post-transfer and tend to graduate at lower rates than their peers who began at four-year institutions as freshman (Bailey, Jenkins, & Leinbach, 2005; Jenkins & Fink, 2016). Reasons for these lowered rates of success have been explored, but have often focused on academic reasons while neglecting any possible social causes. The current review aimed to explore what is known about the impact of social factors, such as belongingness, on community college transfer students' rates of persistence and academic success at four-year institutions. The literature was searched in a systematic way using a three-part search strategy, through which 21 articles were deemed eligible to be included and further evaluated. Several social factors emerged, including sense of belonging, the stereotype of a community college transfer student, and additional considerations for student success as well as social support from family, peers, faculty, and advisors. Most students reported the social factors identified to play a role in their success at the four-year institution. The findings from each theme are presented and future directions for research and programs to be used to address those factors mentioned are suggested.
