Student Services in Illinois Community Colleges: A Manual for Student Services Professionals.
Illinois Council of Community Coll. Administrators.
Designed for trustees, administrators, practitioners, and students, this manual articulates a philosophical basis for student services in Illinois community colleges, and describes, categorizes, and provides guidelines for various aspects of these services. Introductory material outlines the characteristics of the state's community colleges that suggest a special role for student services, provides a history of the development of the manual, and sets forth a philosophy for student services which emphasizes the student's role in his/her own educational development and the importance of integrating student support activities. Next, guidelines are provided for the evaluation of student assessment and academic placement in the colleges. Each of the next sections addresses one particular aspect of student services, providing a definition of the service function, a statement of goals and objectives for that area, an enumeration of the major functions of the service, comments on staffing needs and facility requirements, and comments specific to the area. The services covered are academic advising; financial aid; developmental affective education and counseling; student activities; health services; career counseling; career placement; and admissions, registration, and records.
