Prospectus for an Assistance Center for Community and Junior College Students.
Graham, James M.
After meeting with two junior college administration and student groups, the problems of junior college unrest and dissatisfaction became more evident to the author. Several aspects of junior colleges must be considered: (1) junior college students are unique in their diversity of background and motivation, (2) the community is vitally a part of the junior college and can exert control over it, (3) many junior college students accept the addition of the college experience which may not materially alter what he did before college, and (4) as four year universities become more selective, many students attending two-year colleges will do so because they are unable to enter four year institutions, which could result in a serious conflict of status and self perception. At the junior college level, the student government remains little more than a continuation of its counterpart in high school. Yet student government is the main route for student-administrative communication which could dispell serious conflict and disruption. (Author/KJ)
