Support Services for Students Enrolled in Postsecondary Educational Institutions.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
Supportive services for enrolled students has been identified by the Michigan State Board of Education as one of the key concerns in postsecondary education, warranting special attention and scrutiny. The magnitude of the problem is examined and constructive action toward its alleviation is stimulated. Many of the concepts discussed are the result of contributions made by faculty and staff members at Western Michigan University. Selected existing programs and related activities are reviewed, and a model for a Center for Educational Opportunity is proposed. This model includes the reference to referral, assessment of the needs of the student, specific services to be provided, and follow-up services. An assessment mechanism to measure program effectiveness is an integral part of the process. Recommendations for implementation are included. (LBH)
