Meeting Student's Needs: A Promising Innovation.
Mason, Betty O.; And Others
A centralized office of student services was developed in a college of education to provide academic advice. The office aids students in adding or dropping courses, making degree plans, evaluating transfer work, applying for admission and certification, clarifying graduation and student teacher requirements, and general programmatic counseling. The office has four faculty members who serve as Director of the Office of Student Services, Director of Student Teaching, Director of Early Field Experiences, and Director of International Students. There are also advisors for degree plans and teacher certification. The positive aspects of this operation include the easy accessibility to students and faculty which results from the personnel being physically housed in one central area. Better communication among the personnel responsible for administering the services has reduced student frustration and has increased staff efficiency. (JD)
