Este estudo investigou como a participação do discente do curso de Secretariado Executivo da Universidade Federal do Ceará no Centro Acadêmico pode contribuir com o seu desenvolvimento acadêmico, profissional e social. A pesquisa se justifica pela necessidade de demonstrar a influência da participação na entidade na formação do estudante. A abordagem teórica considerou autores como Silva et al. (2017), Fleury e Fleury (2001), Souza (2004), dentre outros. Metodologicamente, realizou-se um estudo de caso qualitativo e descritivo, por meio de entrevista indireta a 17 participantes do Centro Acadêmico de Secretariado Executivo. Os principais resultados apontam que a entidade agrega valor por aumentar o engajamento na universidade; garantir o contato com competências, como comunicação, controle emocional, liderança, planejamento e programação de projetos; e propiciar o convívio com causas sociais. Destarte, a entidade é capaz de contribuir para a formação universitária como um todo. ABSTRACTThis paper investigated how the involvement of the student of the Executive Secretariat course at the Federal University of Ceará in the academic center can contribute to their academic, professional, and social development.

O presente trabalho teve como propósito apresentar a percepção da importância que a avaliação de equipes proporciona para os Centros Acadêmicos (CA), dando ênfase no entendimento desse grupo enquanto uma instituição. Nesse âmbito, considera-se que o Centro Acadêmico, enquanto organização de terceiro setor, tem como finalidade principal buscar organizar atividades acadêmicas de integração entre os alunos do curso e Stakeholders, visando o seu desenvolvimento; e, por isso, necessita de mecanismos de avaliação e monitoramento para atingir suas metas. Com base nisso, o presente trabalho teve como objetivo geral contribuir com ferramentas de avaliação de desempenho que permita ações relevantes para os processos dos Centros Acadêmicos dos cursos de Secretariado Executivo. Especificamente, buscou-se: (1) verificar se os CAs de Secretariado avaliam o desempenho das equipes através de indicadores; (2) identificar quais indicadores tem sido utilizado no processo de avaliação; e, (3) observar a percepção dos membros dos CAs quanto às contribuições da avaliação de desempenho para os Centros Acadêmicos. A metodologia utilizada caracteriza-se como sendo de natureza bibliográfica, de cunho qualitativo e quantitativo. Como ferramenta de coleta de dados utilizou-se um questionário, o qual foi aplicado aos membros que se predispuseram a responder dos Centros Acadêmicos dos cursos de Secretariado dos estados de Pernambuco, Paraíba, Ceará, Minas Gerais e Pará. Os resultados mostraram que a avaliação de desempenho de equipes é um processo de grande importância nas devidas instituições, visto que, estas funcionam com o propósito de acompanhar e ao mesmo tempo mensurar as atividades que estão sendo desenvolvidas, a fim de proporcionar o crescimento e melhoria das equipes. ABSTRACT The purpose of this work was to present the perception of the importance that team assessment provides for Academic Centers, emphasizing the understanding of this group as an institution. In this context, it is considered that the Academic Center, as a third sector organization, has the main purpose of seeking organize academic integration  activities between students of the course and Stakeholders, aiming at their development; and, therefore, it needs mechanisms to achieve its goals. Based on this, the present work had as general objective to contribute with performance evaluation tools that allow relevant actions for the processes of the Academic Centers of the Executive Secretariat courses. Specifically, we sought to: (1) verify whether the Secretariat ACs evaluate the teams' performance through indicators; (2) identify which indicators have been used in the evaluation process; and, (3) verify if the performance evaluation of the teams has contributed to the results of the Academic Centers. The methodology used is characterized bibliographic and exploratory nature, of a qualitative research. As a data collection instrument, a questionnaire was used, which was applied to the members of the Academic Centers of the Secretariat courses in the states of Pernambuco, Paraíba, Ceará, Minas Gerais and Pará. The results showed that the performance evaluation of teams is a process of great importance in the appropriate institutions, since it works with the purpose of monitoring and at the same time measuring the activities that are being developed, in order to provide growth and improvement of teams.

Abstract Purpose: Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is an aggressive disease with many tools for management that may be subject to resource barriers. This study compares the treatment patterns and survival outcomes among PCNSL patients treated at a safety-net hospital versus a tertiary academic institution.Methods:We retrospectively reviewed records of PCNSL patients from 2007-2020 (n = 95) at a public safety-net hospital (n = 33) and a private academic center (n = 62) staffed by the same university. Demographics, treatment patterns, and outcomes were analyzed.Results:Compared to the tertiary academic center, patients at the safety-net hospital were significantly younger, more commonly Black or Hispanic, and had a higher proportion of presenting patients with HIV. The safety-net hospital cohort was significantly less likely to receive induction chemotherapy (67% vs 86%, p = 0.003) than those at the academic center. Safety-net hospital patients were significantly less likely to receive autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) consolidation (0% vs. 44%, p = 0.001) and had higher rates of consolidative WBRT (35% vs 15%, p = 0.001). Younger age and receiving consolidation were associated with improved progression-free survival (PFS, p = 0.001) and overall survival (OS, p = 0.001). Hospital location had no statistical effect on PFS (p = 0.725) or OS (p = 0.226) on age-adjusted analysis. Conclusions:Our study showed significant treatment differences between a public safety-net hospital and an academic cancer center reflecting access disparities. Despite variable treatment patterns, survival outcomes were not different. Further research is needed to determine optimal treatments for an orphan disease like PCNSL and it will be essential to advocate for equitable access in resource-limited settings.

Introduction. The paper introduces the concept of the Network University on the basis of the World-Class Research and Academic Center “Kuzbass”. It is one of the largest projects aimed at improving the scientific and academic landscape of the Kemerovo region. The digital twin technology can increase the current efficiency of the Kemerovo State University and develop its resources. The research objective was to assess this potential. Study objects and methods. The Network University project presupposes establishing a number of interacting Kuzbass campuses that will prepare competitive post-industrial production specialists able to solve various administrative, analytical, and economic problems that the region is currently facing. Results and discussion. The research involved an urban planning analysis of the future Network University campuses. It resulted in several infrastructure solutions in the context of digital education and the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.5). Conclusion. In case of network universities, higher education does not equal qualifications: education provides each student with a conscious choice and a development pathway in the world of digital economy. A successfully operating link between education and professional activity makes this pathway attractive for investments. The author gave an initial assessment and defined the infrastructure solutions for the future campuses. All these issues are part of research on the capacity of the Kuzbass Network University and integrate the project into Priority 2030, which is the former Strategic Academic Leadership Program.
