The Roles of SPW in Reconstruction of Humane Society
Williamson, E. G.
Societal reconstruction is necessary for the easing of forces destructive to human development. This is the task which each Student Personnel Worker (SPWer) faces. We must seek to do our part in eliminating these forces and to replace them with constructive ones. SPW was developed to meet this challenge and was innovated as an effort to individualize mass education in an effort to humanize personal development. We need to induce each student to strive for individual values within mass society. This has been the historic mission of SPW. Today, however, as we face new problems and stresses, we need to explore what forms of SPW need to be reorganized and what new services need to be developed. Some needed changes include: (1) research on human development; (2) a new emphasis on learning to think clearly; (3) a realization that violence is not a panacea for inequality; (4) the establishment of new forms of orientation (loyalty and moral commitment) to school and college; (5) the implementation of a joint faculty, administration, student redelineation of the functions, privileges, and authority, and relationships of all three components; and (6) a restructuring of service relationships to enhance the worth and dignity of all.
