STUDENT CAMPUS EMPLOYEES.
WILKINSON, RACHEL D.
CAMPUS EMPLOYMENT IS OFFERED TO NEEDY STUDENTS AT A COMMUNITY COLLEGE IN A LARGE URBAN CENTER, WHERE BOTH TERMINAL AND TRANSFER PROGRAMS IN NINE MAJOR STUDY AREAS ARE OFFERED TO ITS 1,000 DAY AND 3,000 EVENING STUDENTS. NOT CREATED ESPECIALLY FOR THESE STUDENTS, JOBS REPRESENT NEEDED SERVICES FOR WHICH THE COLLEGE WOULD OTHERWISE HIRE OUTSIDE HELP (E.G., OPERATION OF AUDIOVISUAL EQUIPMENT, CLERICAL FUNCTIONS, AND LABORATORY ASSISTANCE). THE PROGRAM RECEIVES FUNDS FROM A PRIVATE FOUNDATION, THE COLLEGE BUDGET, AND MONEY RAISING EFFORTS. IN MAKING WORK ASSIGNMENTS, A FACULTY COMMITTEE CONSIDERS STUDENTS' FINANCIAL NEEDS AND SCHOLASTIC PERFORMANCE. A SURVEY OF STUDENTS LED TO THE CONCLUSIONS THAT (1) MANY FAMILIES CANNOT COMPLETELY FINANCE AN EDUCATION EVEN AT A COMMUNITY COLLEGE, (2) AVERAGE STUDENTS CAN WORK A FEW HOURS WEEKLY WITHOUT ACADEMIC LOSS, (3) STUDENTS BENEFIT FINANCIALLY, SOCIALLY, AND ACADEMICALLY FROM WORK EXPERIENCE, AND (4) THE COLLEGE BENEFITS FROM THE PROGRAM. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "EDUCATION," VOLUME 86, NUMBER 2, OCTOBER 1965. (WO)
