Clark, Robert M.
The Reedley College (California) counseling staff, before their new counseling center was built, undertook a survey of 63 community colleges in California to obtain information on actual and desirable counseling offices, counseling hours, and facilities. The optimal office size was found to be 10 x 11 1/2 feet. Size, however, depends on the organization of the counseling services and the use to which the offices are put. Desirable facilities were found to include vocational information facilities, close proximity to student records, group counseling and conference rooms, testing room, outside windows, sound-proofing, carpeting, adequate storage space, adequate reception/waiting area, individual offices for counselors, stenorette tape recorders for each counselor, more room, bulletin boards, more clerical and paraprofessional help, removal of the counseling center from the administration area, air conditioning, attractive and colorful furnishings, and provision for growth. Detailed tables and comments are included from the surveyed colleges. (CA)
