The Future Role of the Highest Ranking Woman Student Personnel Administrator in the College or University and a Suggested Training Program.
Haller, Lola Marie
This study sought to define the future role of the highest ranking woman student personnel administrator in a college or university and to suggest an appropriate training program. Data on relevant historical factors, influential background and educational characteristics, potentially influential educational and societal concepts, and suitable characteristics and background were obtained from the literature and by interviews with acknowledged leaders in college student personnel administration. Findings indicated that the role of these administrators is shifting from basically custodial to primarily administrative and educational. The new role may involve some administrative responsibility in coordinating personnel services and working with students of both sexes, and interpretation of women's special educational needs to the students, faculty, and administration. The recommended doctoral program would be interdisciplinary, with course work in such areas as psychology, sociology, business, and personnel work, together with an internship. Further research on recruitment, motivation, and other topics was also urged. (author/ly)
