The Night People: Design for Involvement with Part-Time Urban Graduate Students. A Symposium.
Marshall, Jon C.; And Others
With its rapidly increasing enrollment and its large population of evening students, the University of Missouri, St. Louis (UMSL) has its share of the special problems of student and faculty involvement which a commuter college often develops. This paper focuses on the programs and activities established to encourage and provide opportunities for extra-classroom involvement for graduate students enrolled in UMSL's "Counselor Education, Evaluation, Research, and Educational Psychology Department." Efforts are mentioned which provide for student faculty interaction and which assist evening students in class and course scheduling. The bulk of the paper describes the counseling sequence and the research sequence of UMSL's Counselor Education Program in terms of its fidelity to the concept of learning by student involvement and interpersonal relations. The crucial purpose of the program is stated as follows: to produce counselors whose knowledge and interpersonal behavior allow them to function as helping persons. Extensive student comments and evaluation of the programs and their on-the-job relevance and utility are presented. (TL)
