Resource Guide for Educational Services (Student Services) for Colorado Community & Junior Colleges and Area Vocational Schools.
Colorado State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education, Denver.
This resource guide provides guidelines for the development of a new model for student services delivery systems in Colorado's community colleges and area vocational schools. Introductory material discusses the role of student services in the 1980's and provides information on the development of the proposed model and guidebook. Following a discussion of the philosophical basis of student services, the next sections suggest a broadening of the concept of student services to include a range of services related to student life and learning under the umbrella term "educational services"; outline the mission of educational services and its objectives; and look at the administrative functions of educational services. Next, sub-models of educational services are presented in the areas of admissions, advising, assessment, athletics, bookstore, campus security, career planning and development/counseling, child care, cooperative education, enrollment management, financial aid, food services, graduation, health services, housing, international students, job development and placement, learning development program, library, lifestyle assessment and wellness, marketing, media, orientation, publications, records, recruitment, reprographics, retention, space utilization, special populations, student activities, and student government. Guidelines for evaluation and accountability and staffing are followed by a series of recommendations for future study and action in the areas of assessment and program placement, advising and attrition, and learner-centered education. A glossary of terms and selected references conclude the resource guide. (LAL)
