Perceptions of the Counselor's Role Within a Saskatchewan Post-Secondary Institute.
Hill, Lorraine
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.
