An Educational Development Services in a Community College.
Johnston, E. F.; And Others
The document describes an educational development service designed to replace the more traditional student counseling service of a community college. It is committed to the principles of service, education and research and the implementation of both preventive and remedial programs which optimize all educational and personal growth opportunities. Six procedural tenets are listed: (1) the service will attempt to assess and meet new needs of the community college, (2) all programs of the service should remain integrated to avoid departmentalization, (3) the service will try to maintain a small staff student ratio, (4) the service will be decentralized to operate throughout the campus, (5) the program will be concerned with all students and go to them for suggestions, and (6) the college strives for a staff which exemplifies faith, understanding and acceptance. Three basic functions of the program are discussed: (1) remedial and rehabilitative, (2) preventive and (3) educative and developmental. The remainder of the paper deals with the community college's entrance and placement program, its academic advising program, its learning assistance program and its counseling program. (MC/Author)
