Examples of New Student Personnel Programs Created to Meet the Needs of Diversified Community College Student Bodies.
Marchbanks, Janice
The open-door philosophy and the resulting diversification of the community college student body require that student personnel programs improve their services. This paper describes and analyzes new practices in student personnel services that attempt to make the open door philosophy a reality. The report briefly describes decentralization of counseling services which aims to provide better communication between faculty and counselors, to make counselors more aware of curriculum, to improve instruction through faculty-counselor consultation, to provide counseling services to more students, and to improve advising programs. The paper cites changes in orientation programs designed to help students assess themselves, and to become acquainted with the campus, community, and college programs. Other discussion focuses on the use of nonprofessional support in academic advising and the proliferation of new forms of counseling services. (Author/LAA)
