The main newsletter article concerns aspects of the "new student" having implications for higher education and student personnel services. Students are more mature biologically, and are better informed than when undergraduate institutions adopted their primary ways of operation. Students constitute a growing cultural concern, in opposition to some American social traditions. Students are, also, more activistically disposed. The changed nature of the relationship between a college and its students is discussed. The professionalization of student leadership is considered. Possible models of the student personnel worker role are described. University operation could be improved by (1) the involvement of all university personnel in the management of student life, (2) the study of higher education by behavioral scientists, and (3) by increasing the understanding of college and other social institution relationships by people moving into professional academic careers. Reactions to this article and discussions of the new student follow. The Joint Statement on The Rights and Freedoms of Students is presented. New ERIC materials related to school-student interaction and to student climate are listed. (PS)
