A Comparison of the Functional Responsibilities of Chief Student Personnel Officers in Two and Four Year Institutions.
Brodzindski, Frederick R.
Differences between responsibilities of chief student personnel officers in two-year and in four-year institutions were examined. A questionnaire was developed which consisted of 20 items with each item representing a functional area within the field of student personnel administration. Officers at two-year institutions were found to have significantly more responsibility in the areas of admissions, financial aid, registration and records, intramurals, intercollegiate athletics, veterans programs, and student employment. However, officers at four-year institutions had significantly more responsibility in the areas of health service, residence hall programs, residence hall management, student union programs, and student union management. Similar responsibility existed in eight remaining areas. Results indicate that not only do chief student personnel officers in two-year institutions have responsibility comparable to that of their colleagues in four-year institutions, but in fact they have certain areas of more responsibility. Some areas in which the two-year personnel functions, wheras areas in which four-year officers have more personnel functions, whereas areas in which four-year officers have more responsibility are those which are not particularly relevant to two-year institutions.
