Community College Students Define Counselor Role.
DeVolder, John P.
Developing and administering the Community College Counselor Function Inventory to 75 students and their counselors, the author found a discrepancy between student and counselor perceptions of what counselor functions are important. Students tended to see the counselor role as primarily educational-occupational, while the counselors saw their role as dealing more with the personal area. Registering and scheduling of students and checking credits for graduation or transfer were perceived as important counselor functions by students and, though counselors were performing these duties to the students' satisfaction, the counselors did not perceive them as important. It was concluded that the counselor was working outside of his defined role, and it was recommended that the role either be redefined to include tasks not presently recognized as important, or an effort be made to change the students' understanding of the counselors role.
