This sourcebook examines student personnel services with a view to revealing both positive and negative aspects and suggesting improvements. Issues discussed include: the Gestalt of student lives and educational experiences; the problem of relating traditional higher education to non-traditional students; the importance of preparing community college faculty and counselors to accept and understand "new" students; methods of assessing community college students; student financial aid; the special need of minority students for student services; the impact of recent changes in college governance on the delivery of student services on the campus of the future; the need for a redefinition of student activities and for a more effective interaction between the college and the community; and the new challenges to student personnel services created by the changing relationships between college and community, faculty and administration, and students and faculty. A review of additional pertinent literature and a bibliography are also provided. Contributors include: Timothy J. Neher, Christopher G. Potter, Jay F. Ebersole, W. Doglas Hargis, Terry O'Banion, Florence B. Brawer, Harold L. Simmons, Alfreda A. Johnson, Richard M. Turner, III, Richard I. Miller, Don A. Morgan, Leslie Purdy, Janet Bloom, and Clyde E. Blocker.
