Student Involvement. A Working Paper.
Ferguson, Donald G.
Students are clients of the educational system, but traditionally have had little voice in decisionmaking about the services they receive. Students are now demanding greater involvement, and administrators have tried a number of programs designed for student participation, generally with success. Some examples of successful programs are (1) student centers that provide a focus on students and serve to improve relations with students, (2) inclusion of students on deliberative and decisionmaking bodies to encourage greater communication and understanding between staff and students, and (3) involvement of students in producing innovative educational programs and services that better meet the needs and interests of students.
