502    Thesis (Ed.D.)--University of Southern California, 2011 
520    In August 2006 the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV),
       through its internationally recognized program in 
       Hospitality Administration, opened its first international
       branch campus in Singapore and graduated its first 
       undergraduate cohort of 34 students in 2009.  UNLV 
       Singapore quickly expanded its scope of service; in the 
       first three years undergraduate enrollment increased by 40
       percent.  In March 2010, UNLV Singapore partnered with the
       Singapore Institute of Technology to increase access for 
       undergraduate Singaporean students and in August 2010, 
       UNLV Singapore welcomed its largest cohort to date, 280 
       first-year students.  UNLV Singapore purports to 
       accomplish its student and researched-focused mission by 
       creating and sustaining a student-centered learning 
       environment.  A single case study was conducted to 
       determine how this Singapore campus differs from 
       traditional brick and mortar home institutions in seeking 
       to create and maintain a student-centered campus 
       environment for UNLV's undergraduate program.  
       Specifically, this case study addressed the formal and 
       informal roles of faculty, staff, and students at the 
       Singapore location and how they contributed to the 
       creation and maintenance of the institutional culture 
520    The principal finding from the analysis of interviews, 
       participant observation, and written materials is that 
       UNLV created a student-centered environment at its first 
       international branch campus in Singapore by supporting 
       holistic student development through elements found in the
       curriculum, co-curriculum, community, and culture.  The 
       results of student, faculty, and staff interviews 
       demonstrate that the founding dean was the catalyst for 
       creating an environment oriented to educating and 
       producing student leaders that would become leaders in the
       hospitality industry.  Students were given a variety of 
       opportunities to assume informal and formal roles through 
       the co-curriculum that allowed for the culture to grow and
       develop from student cohort to student cohort.  Faculty 
       and staff supported this process by engaging students both
       in and out of the classroom and promoting collaborative 
       assignments and activities
