Triton College: A Review of the Student Personnel Program.
Beyerl, Merrill C.; And Others
This report presents the findings and recommendations of a review of the student personnel services program at Triton College (Illinois), conducted by a team from the Consulting Service of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. The report briefly describes the college and its administration and suggests a reorganization of the Student Personnel Services Division so that only three individuals (Assistant Dean of Counseling, Assistant Dean of Student Services, and an Admissions Specialist) report directly to the Division Dean. Suggested roles and responsibilities of the Dean and Assistant Dean of Student Affairs are described. Various aspects and programs within the student affairs and student services area are discussed and evaluated: the student union and student association; the office of the financial aid, placement, and veteran's advisor; health services; the organization of the Counseling Area, the duties of the Assistant Dean for Counseling, counselors, and counselor aides, and the philosophical base for the Counseling Area; the admissions process, student recruitment, the admissions testing program, the duties of the Specialist in Admissions and Records, and record-keeping procedures; freshman orientation; and the one-year, experimental interdepartmental program.
