Decreasing Student Alienation in Higher Education: One View.
Hill, W. Frank, IV
This paper discusses the issue of how to decrease student alienation in higher education. Its focus is on the quality of the relationship between instructor and students, which is characterized by the student's involvement in the subject matter while, simultaneously, being offered the potential for personal interest by the instructor. This writer maintains that this existential relationship of openness to and acceptance of the other is a relationship of dialogue that should transcend the formalism within our system of education and that the student personnel administrator is in a position to become the catalyst to encourage, permit, and provide the context within which individuals in the university community can relate to each other as individuals.
