In Search of Patterns for Progress..., A Report of the Maryland Student Personnel Conference (Williamsburg, Virginia, October 20-23, 1968).
Thurston, Alice; Roush, C. Wayne
The intent of the conference was to (1) assemble the student personnel workers of Maryland junior colleges, (2) evaluate and update professional information, both local and nationwide, (3) disseminate information through small-group interaction and mass media, (4) develop a detailed follow-up survey and study of student personnel departments in the colleges, and (5) prepare a conference report to be used as a reference tool for student personnel workers. Keynote speakers were Edmund J. Gleazer, Jr. ("What's on the Horizon for Junior/Community Colleges?"), L. Lynn Ourth ("Student Development in Higher Educational Environments"), Max R. Raines ("How Do We Evaluate What We Do?"), James L. Wattenbarger ("A Model State Structure for Community Colleges"), Paul E. Behrens and Edwin T. Carine ("Realistic Approaches to Student Appraisal"), and Daniel J. Sorrells ("Students in Revolution"). There was also a panel discussion on the topic of students in revolution. Four group reports (with recommendations) were made on: (1) the role of junior college student personnel workers in Maryland, (2) programs for the unprepared and research on student characteristics, (3) student activities and student governance, and (4) promises and problems of the technologies and realistic approaches to student appraisal. The report concludes with a list of the colleges participating, the names of those on the conference committee, and all those who attended. (HH)
