THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A COLLEGE AND ITS STUDENTS.
CALLIS, ROBERT
WHETHER A COLLEGE STANDS IN RELATION TO ITS STUDENTS AS A PARENT TO A CHILD (IN LOCO PARENTIS) OR AS A PHYSICIAN TO HIS PATIENT (IN LOCO DOCTORIS) CAN BE VALIDATED BY STUDENT PERSONNEL WORKERS BY ANSWERING THE QUESTION, "IS THIS RELATIONSHIP NECESSARY AND DESIRABLE IN ORDER FOR THE COLLEGE TO PERFORM ITS MISSION, WHICH IS LEGALLY THAT OF EDUCATION." EDUCATION IS DEFINED AS THE TRAINING OF THE MIND. THE DEVELOPMENT OF ENRICHED EMOTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS WHICH A COLLEGE HAS WITH ITS STUDENTS, THEREFORE, IS AN EDUCATIONAL ONE (BRADY AND SNOXALL, 1965) TO CARRY OUT ITS LEGAL MISSION OF EDUCATION. OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES THUS ADOPTED BY A COLLEGE MUST SUPPORT THE PURPOSE OF EDUCATION OR BE ABANDONED. AN EVALUATION OF CURRENT STUDENT PERSONNEL PRACTICES MAY INDICATE SUPPORT FOR THIS DOCTRINE OR REVEAL GAPS IN EXISTING PROCEDURES IN SUCH AREAS AS ENRICHED EMOTIONAL CAPACITY AND SOUND ETHICAL VALUES. THE AUTHOR SUGGESTS THAT STUDENT PERSONNEL WORKERS BE LESS CONCERNED ABOUT BEING PARENTS AND MORE CONCERNED ABOUT BEING EDUCATORS. THIS SPEECH WAS PREPARED FOR THE AMERICAN PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE ASSOCIATION CONVENTION (WASHINGTON, D.C., SESSION 78, APRIL 4, 1966). (RM)
