New Approaches to College Student Development.
Tollefson, Arthur L.
Student development has come to have a special meaning that focuses on activities undertaken for the educational benefit of the student outside the traditional purview of the professor. It has a positive educational rather than administrative aspect that has come to be associated with student personnel work. This accentuating of the positive has stimulated a reassessment of the status of the profession. However, the new focus has brought problems with it. Chapters cover: (1) the philosophical and historical developments in higher education in terms of implications for student development; (2) programs that provide opportunities for the educationally disadvantaged; (3) programs that provide more personalized services for other kinds of students; (4) curricular innovations; (5) efforts to recreate a sense of community; (6) a summary and analysis of these trends; and (7) an attempt to construct a model which incorporates the principles underlying the basic trends.
