The Development of Guidelines for Student Personnel Services in the Two-Year Community College.
Yoder, Marlen Dean
Designed to identify the functions necessary for an adequate student personnel program in the 2-year community college and to develop guidelines based on the identified functions, a questionnaire was distributed to 100 public junior colleges in Arizona, California, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Responses from the 86 participants were used to structure guidelines which, in turn, were sent to 10 student personnel specialists for critical evaluation. Data from the questionnaires were presented in narrative and tabular form, and were categorized as follows: (1) organization, (2) selecting and admitting new students, (3) orientation for new students, (4) counseling and advisement of students, (5) extracurricular activities, (6) physical and mental health, (7) student discipline, (8) testing program, (9) student records, (10) placement service, (11) followup service, and (12) financial assistance. Two major recommendations growing out of the study were that the devised guidelines be used by experienced practitioners for clarifying and conceptualizing the purposes of student personnel work and that the guidelines be used in institutional self-study rather than in any external appraisal.
