ADMINISTERING COMMUNITY COLLEGE STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES, REPORT OF THE ANNUAL PRESIDENTS' INSTITUTE, MIDWEST COMMUNITY COLLEGE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM (5TH, ANN ARBOR, 1965).
MEALEY, F.R.
THIS INSTITUTE (JULY 1965) COVERED BOTH IMMEDIATE AND PERIPHERAL ASPECTS OF STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES, WITH APPROPRIATE EMPHASIS ON THE SEMIPROFESSIONAL AND OCCUPATIONAL CURRICULUM. COUNSELING SHOULD PROVIDE THE STUDENT WITH (1) ORIENTATION TO COLLEGE LIFE, (2) APPRAISAL OF HIS ABILITIES AND APTITUDES, (3) FIRM REGULATIONS FOR SUITABLE COURSE SELECTION, (4) CONSULTATION (CAREER ADVICE, PERSONAL COUNSELING) WITH A PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR OR FACULTY MEMBER, (5) ENCOURAGEMENT OF HIS PARTICIPATION IN COCURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, AND (6) SERVICES SUCH AS FINANCIAL AID, JOB PLACEMENT, HEALTH, AND HOUSING. AMONG OTHER TOPICS DISCUSSED WERE THE ROLE OF ETHICAL VALUES IN PERSONAL COUNSELING, THE USE OF ELECTRONIC DATA SYSTEMS FOR EFFICIENT PROCESSING OF STUDENT RECORDS, CAREFUL SELECTION OF STAFF FOR GOOD RELATIONS WITH THE ADMINISTRATION, THE FACULTY, AND THE STUDENTS, THE USE OF OLDER STUDENTS TO ORIENT THE YOUNGER, AND THE HAZARDS OF CULTURAL BIAS IN INTELLIGENCE TESTS. SPECIAL CONSIDERATION WAS GIVEN TO THE "NON-STUDENTS", E.G., WORKERS NEEDING ONLY ADDITIONAL OR RETRAINING COURSES, OR OTHER ADULTS REQUIRING SELECTED VOCATIONAL OR AVOCATIONAL INSTRUCTION. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FOR $1.25 FROM F. R. MEALEY, EDITOR, MIDWEST COMMUNITY COLLEGE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM, UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN. (HH)
