DIRECTION AND EMPHASIS. A SURVEY OF GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING PROGRAMS IN MICHIGAN COMMUNITY COLLEGES. FINAL REPORT.
Michigan State Board of Education, Lansing.
THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS SURVEY WERE--(1) TO ASCERTAIN THE CURRENT EMPHASIS IN GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING PROGRAMS, AND (2) TO DETERMINE THE DIRECTION COMMUNITY COLLEGE PERSONNEL BELIEVE GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING SHOULD TAKE BY 1970. TABULATIONS WERE MADE OF 92 QUESTIONNAIRES RETURNED FROM 21 COMMUNITY COLLEGES TO INDICATE HOW RESPONDENTS PERCEIVED THE ROLE OF THE COUNSELOR IN THEIR COLLEGES IN 1966 AND BY 1970. TABULATIONS WERE MADE ACCORDING TO FUNCTION AND PERCEPTION OF ROLE. AMONG THE 21 BASIC STUDENT PERSONNEL FUNCTIONS, MORE THAN 95 PERCENT OF THE RESPONDENTS SAW THE COUNSELOR AS DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR STUDENT COUNSELING. OVER 90 PERCENT OF THE RESPONDENTS SAW THE COUNSELOR AS DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR--(1) APPLICANT CONSULTING, (2) EDUCATIONAL TESTING, (3) GROUP ORIENTING, (4) CAREER INFORMATION, AND (5) STUDENT ADVISEMENT. THE MOST FREQUENT AND CONSISTENT PERCEPTION OF THE COUNSELOR'S TASKS FOCUSED ON INDIVIDUAL STUDENT INTERVIEWING. INTERPRETING TEST RESULTS IN COUNSELING INTERVIEWS WAS SEEN AS A COUNSELOR'S TASK BY MORE THAN 90 PERCENT OF THE RESPONDENTS. INCREASED INVOLVEMENT WAS SEEN IN INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH AND GROUP WORK WITH STUDENTS. INTERVIEW REPORTS SUPPORT THE MAJOR FINDINGS IN THE QUESTIONNAIRES. THE QUESTIONNAIRE AND TABLES PRESENTING THE INFORMATION GATHERED ARE APPENDED. (IM)
