Outreach Programs: The Changing Relationships Between Counseling and Campus.
Winter, William D.
This paper describes two innovative programs inaugurated by the counseling center at San Jose State College in response to the increased general involvement of college students over the past several years. The first program was an educational experiment which sought to make freshman psychology courses more meaningful, as well as to increase student participation in the college environment. These aims were accomplished by involving volunteer freshmen participants in peer orientation and T-groups with upper class and graduate psychology students, and by organizing a core curriculum revolving around the psychology course. The second program, involving minority groups, grew out of student violence in 1967. The counseling center undertook to bring minority problems out into the open, and to encourage small group confrontations where participants of all races might explore their racial feelings. Counselor involvement has been heavy in the cause of the minority students, perhaps to the detriment of more scholarly activities, and it is too soon to establish the boundaries of ultimate counselor concern. However, it is felt that in these stressful times, there is more danger in inertia than in experimentation. (CJ)
