THE HOUSE PLAN IN HIGHER EDUCATION AND ITS APPLICATION TO THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
DIMITRY, JOHN RANDOLPH
FROM A REVIEW OF LITERATURE AND STUDIES OF SEVEN OPERATING HOUSE PLANS, A MODEL OF THE "AVERAGE" HOUSE PLAN WAS DEVELOPED AND APPLIED TO THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE AS A MEANS OF PROVIDING ORDERLY GROWTH OVER A PERIOD OF YEARS. IN THE MODEL, (1) THE STUDENTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE TOTAL STUDENT BODY, (2) THE FACULTY RESEMBLES THE LARGER FACULTY IN TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING, WITH A PREDISPOSITION TO INNOVATE AND EXPERIMENT, (3) THE HOUSE HAS ITS OWN EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES, EXCEPT FOR HIGHLY SPECIALIZED UNITS, (4) THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT THROUGH CLOSE FACULTY-STUDENT RELATIONSHIP, (5) THE HOUSE IS SEMI-INDEPENDENT OF THE PARENT INSTITUTION, WITH ITS OWN LIBRARY, ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION, COUNSELING SERVICES, AND COCURRICULAR PROGRAM, AND (6) THE CURRICULUM, COMPLETELY PRESCRIBED FOR MOST STUDENTS, IS CHIEFLY GENERAL EDUCATION. THE COLLEGE'S GENERAL EDUCATION OBJECTIVES MAY BE REINFORCED BY THE HOUSE PLAN EMPHASIS ON INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS AND A COHESIVE STUDENT BODY. IN ADDITION TO GENERAL EDUCATION, SOME HOUSES COULD EMPHASIZE SPECIFIC OCCUPATIONAL PROGRAMS. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDES THAT INTRODUCTION OF THE HOUSE PLAN IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGE WOULD DEVELOP AN ENVIRONMENT CONDUCIVE TO INTELLECTUAL AND ACADEMIC GROWTH AND ACHIEVEMENT.
