Priority Need in SPA: Program Specialists. A New Approach to Student Advising in Higher Education.
Seymour, John C.; Blackburn, J. Vernon
The purposes of this paper are: (1) to state basic assumptions underlying a new and different approach to serving college students in their personal growth; (2) to describe the desirable characteristics of a comprehensive educational-vocational development program at the college level; (3) to examine the status of current higher educational practices; and (4) to discuss the role and functions of the program specialist - a new student personnel type proposed in the paper. It is argued that a new specialization is needed in collegiate student personnel work which is referred to as "Student Program Specialist." In this role, he would be responsible for all student academic advising and general career development. (Author/TL)
