Orientation Proposal 1969-1970.
State Univ. of New York, Buffalo.
This document presents the proposal for the orientation program for new students and faculty at the State University of New York at Buffalo. In the interest of coordinating and expanding the various University orientation programs and providing a common university study focus, the following structure is recommended: (1) that summer planning conferences be extended to include transfer students; (2) that the fall orientation be conceived as a program for the entire University, not just for new students; (3) that orientation be an ongoing year-long process coordinated with summer planning conferences and continuing through the spring, when a special program is held to help those students making major-field decisions; (4) that a new faculty orientation program be initiated; (5) that the University adopt a major problem theme as a task for the year and that orientation be used as a way to initiate and define the problem; (6) that faculty and upperclassmen be drawn into the advising process formally rather than to keep all such contacts on the informal level; and (7) that to accomplish all of this, a University Orientation Committee be established to coordinate these efforts.
