An Academic Vice President Looks at Student Services/Career Services--A Muddle.
Simmons, Charles E. P.
This paper presents an academic vice president's critical discussion of student personnel services and career counseling. The author begins by examining the isolation of student services from faculty, staff and administrators. He than looks at the emphasis made on placement without adequate student preparation for career planning and career choice. These and other criticisms culminate in a call to student service workers to utilize the mechanisms and authority at their command to promote career counseling, academic counseling, and responsible and responsive placement services. The author also calls for greater intrainstitutional communication and cooperation. (SJL)
