Career Planning and Placement for Firelands Campus: A Proposal with Goals and Objectives.
Marrer, Robert F.
Helping students develop realistic career goals is a shared responsibility of faculty, administrators, and student services personnel of Firelands Campus, a two-year branch college of Bowling Green State University. Career development at Firelands involves the dean's office, admissions office, veterans affairs office, placement office, and faculty (both technical and general studies). As a result, innovative programs are initiated that extend beyond the campus to include industries and businesses in a three-county area. Students develop realistic decision-making skills by participating in recruitment at county fairs and festivals, serving on vital campus committees, and are voting members of a Planning Team, a unique campus-wide council which reviews the mission and goals of Firelands Campus, approves budget requests, and reviews departmental objectives and needs. Administrators visit area industries and businesses to explain various academic programs, faculty members are part of a team that visit area high schools, more than 50 leaders of local businesses and industries serve as advisers on academic committees, and faculty are involved in placement resources for Firelands graduates. This team approach has resulted in a greater sensitivity to realistic career decision-making as part of the total educational process rather than a counseling process. (Author)
