Final Technical Report on the Institute for Advanced Study in Student Personnel Work.
This document reports the planning, implementation, and evaluation of a 9-month institute held at the University of Missouri-Columbia to prepare participants (approximately 20) for leadership positions in student personnel work at junior colleges and technical institutes. The following aspects of the instructional program are discussed and evaluated: (1) experiences built around a section of 10 students and a professor; (2) didactic courses taught within the institute or outside the institute in the regular university offering; and (3) institute seminars. Specific areas in which each participant was expected to develop reasonable competence were: human behavior, environmental influences, educational and psychological measurement, counseling theories and methods, statistics and research methods, higher education, and student personnel work. The institute was rated as successful by student participants, teaching faculty, and a team of evaluators. Various organizational aspects of the program are presented. (CA)
