Perceptions of the Counselor's Role Within a Saskatchewan Post-Secondary Institute.
The roles of counseling and counselors within the educational system have often been poorly defined. To investigate the current and desired role of student services counselors in a postsecondary institution, the perceptions of students, instructors, administrators and counselors were assessed by a questionnaire listing 79 possible counselor functions. Results indicated that: (1) a high percentage of students and instructors did not know the current functions of the counselors; (2) inconsistencies existed between the perceptions of certain counselor functions and the appropriateness or degree of priority of those functions; (3) the counselors' perceptions of their priorities were inconsistent with other subjects' perceptions; and (4) counselors appeared to be aware of the priorities placed on various counseling activities by other respondent groups.
