"Objectives of Student Personnel Programs in the Community College".
Karns, L. T.
This paper examines the evolution of the student personnel function in higher education and particularly the uniqueness of the function of the Community College level. Some important factors which influenced the development of student personnel work in higher education are identified; the article then discusses the unique role of the community college as a segment of higher education. From the literature a symthesis of the theoretical objectives of student personnel work at the community college is presented, as well as objectives of actual programs at the community college level. These objectives are divided into three specific groups: 1) adjustive objectives which deal with necessary changes in student attitude or behavior as well as desirable environmental changes; 2) distributive objectives involving the informational processes; and 3) adaptive objectives concerned with modification in institutional programs and activities to meet variability in student and community need.
