A Study and Procedural Guide to Professional Development Organization and Administration for Student Personnel Workers.
Hall, Charles W. L.
A guide to the organization and administration of professional development efforts for student personnel workers is presented. The development of the guide was based on needs within the organization: (1) to understand processes and procedures of student personnel services and how they relate to other departments; (2) to communicate and relate to the organization as a whole; and (3) to formally inform new employees about mission and roles. The second need was addressed through a series of film discussion groups, which are outlined in appended interoffice correspondence. In addition, a course contract for a specialist level internship to assist in the development of a professional development program is included, along with a consultation agreement, and minutes of meetings addressing professional and personal development issues within the Division of Admissions and Special Academic Services. Attention is directed to: a model for staff development, interdivisional communications, process review for program enrollments and certification, and divisional needs assessment. Need areas were identified using a consensus model and an organizational needs assessment survey. An assessment report and recommendations were also developed. Additional memos, minutes of meetings, questionnaires, and forms are included. Appended materials also include: developmental models, a collection of planning documents, an inventory of practical professional resources, and a bibliography of student personnel literature supporting personal development.
