Human Relations Procedures Relevant to University Environmental Change.
American Personnel and Guidance Association, Washington, DC.
The present college scene is in a state of flux and confusion. Several problems are receiving major priority: (1) student stress, (2) alienation of students, and (3) activism among students. Reasons for the above problems could include: (1) individual and inter-group stress, and (2) tension between groups. Procedures which have been utilized on campuses to deal with some of the intra-personal and inter-group stress include: (1) a human relations workshop during which leaders could maximize self awareness, establish relationships with other students, and establish a student staffed workshop for other students; (2) faculty student encounters, established in the evening or on weekends, several times during the year; and (3) campus wide discussions of relevant issues with the large group breaking into smaller groups for discussions. Problem solving designs include: (1) a fantasy model for estimating future conditions, (2)the exchange of tapes generated by role groups, and the discussion of these tapes; (3) a half day workshop involving faculty, students, and administration; and (4) a black-white microlab confrontation model. Each design is thoroughly explained. (Author/KJ)
