Emerging Trends in Junior College Student Personnel Work.
Matson, Jane E.
Programs of professional preparation, the growth of professional identity, junior college practices, procedures, and policies, and an assortment of special projects are discussed. Junior colleges must assume more responsibility for the pre-service and in-service preparation of student personnel workers. Increased interest in, and by, professional associations requires junior college personnel to initiate and maintain productive relationships, to be best served by the organizations. Current practices in junior college student personnel work indicate a need for the centralization of organizational patterns, broadening of staffing patterns, direction change of the counseling function, imaginative student activities programs, the progress of developmental or remedial programs, and the encouragement of changes in student roles. Several special projects are discussed. Student personnel work needs to develop a stronger commitment to the basic philosophy of junior colleges, re-conceptualize student personnel purposes, and focus on research and evaluation. (WR)
