Transfer Students Speak Out.
Barger, Ben; And Others
During the week of April 22, 1968, two workshops were held at the University of Florida under the sponsorship of the Student Mental Health Project MF 14789, "Preventive Action in College Mental Health," with additional support from the Florida Department of Education. The workshops represent one of the demonstration programs developed under this project grant in pursuit of the project goals to create preventive action programs to facilitate student mental health. The purposes of these workshops were: (1) to provide opportunities for transfer students to report their experiences, feelings and evaluation of their transitional experiences to counselors from the junior colleges from which they transferred; and (2) to provide opportunities for the junior college counselors and university administrators, deans and mental health personnel to discuss these student reports in order to determine ways in which the university and the junior colleges might modify their programs and work together toward better articulation of program sequences to facilitate effective student development and reduce sources of disruptive transitional distress. Recommendations are made. Appended are the schedule of workshop activities, a list of the junior college and university participants, and a table noting the number of junior college representatives, students, and groups involved in interviews.
