Conference on Student Personnel. Final Report.
Cross, K. Patricia
Student personnel administrators and research specialists from US and Canadian colleges and universities discussed how to use current research data in improving educational programs. Workshops focused on possible solutions to specific student personnel problems at 3 kinds of institutions; junior colleges and small state colleges, liberal arts colleges, and large state colleges and universities. Suggested changes included programs geared to student counseling and development, faculty-administration-student cooperation, and student participation in university-sponsored community activities. In one instance the establishment of a computerized student information system was proposed, and in another the formation of a "think factory" to engage in discussions on campus problems. During the conference, each participant developed an innovative program for his campus that was then evaluated by conference consultants. Subjects covered curriculum and leadership development, student counseling and college activities, and student personnel administration. After further assessment of their proposals, the 83 participants will attempt to establish the new programs at their campuses. A survey will be made in Spring 1969 to determine whether they were instituted; and if so, what the results of actual application were. (WM)
