Organizational Plan and Procedures for Integration of Centralized Counseling with Instructional Divisions.
Kapraun, E. Daniel; Stephenson, Gwendolyn W.
Developed in response to a decision to reorganize the counseling division at the Forest Park Campus of St. Louis Community College from a decentralized to a centralized counseling program, this integration plan represents the results of an effort to upgrade counseling, advising, and job placement services. Following introductory material, the objectives for the reorganization are outlined: to provide counseling and advising services to students and faculty in the instructional divisions while maintaining comprehensive services and resources in the centralized counseling area; to facilitate the development of counselors as generalists; to develop an information base for effective counseling; and to provide for the coordination of counseling functions. Next, the components of the organizational plan are outlined, including sections on the counselor as generalist and specialist, instructional support teams, educational advisors and placement specialists. The report then enumerates the duties of the instructional support team leaders and members and the instructional division associate dean and details procedures for operating the instructional division counseling offices. Next, the report enumerates the procedures for the development of career cassette tapes, to be used by the placement specialists, and for the creation of an academic advising handbook. Finally, a typical schedule of counseling staff meetings is provided. Appendices describe the career cassette tapes and academic advising handbook and offer related materials. (KL)
