Advising & Counseling. The Study of Education at Stanford. Report to the University.
Stanford Univ., CA.
This report, the fifth in a series of ten, was prepared by the Steering Committee, the Study of Education at Stanford. The series, based on the concept that education should be a continuous process of discovery throughout life, sets forth recommendations for strengthening the academic enterprise at Stanford University. This booklet presents the report of the Topic Committee on Advising and Counseling, which is based on its position paper entitled "Advising: The Humanity of the University." The committee recommends an administrative focus on advising as a crucial academic function, evaluation of individual and departmental counseling, and increased emphasis on the training and development of responsibility in future advisors. Problems with Stanford University's professional counseling appear to stem from indifferent attitudes of students, faculty, and administrators. In the hope that the kinds of attitudes that are vital to good counseling may be brought about, the committee proposes structural changes that would clarify --for both students and advisors-- the university's means for providing vocational and psychological counseling. The committee's recommendation on freshman advising was substituted for one by the Steering Committee.
