Promoting Values Development in College Students. Monograph Series, Volume 4.
Dalton, Jon C., Ed.
This monograph was written to examine the significance of recent moral development theory and research for college student development and to demonstrate ways in which these findings can be incorporated into student affairs programs and services. Although the monograph includes some review and discussion of research and theory in values development, it is intended primarily for student personnel practitioners. The following chapters are included: (1) "The Legacy of Values Education in College Student Personnel Work" (Arthur Sandeen); (2) "Values Education: A New Priority for College Student Development" (Jon C. Dalton); (3) "Influences of Character Development During the College Years: The Retrospective View of Recent Undergraduates" (John M. Whiteley, et al); (4) "Critical Factors in the Value Development Process" (Jon C. Dalton); (5) "Planning a Comprehensive Values Education Program" (Jon C. Dalton, et al); and (6) "Evaluating Moral Development" (James R. Rest). Also included are a conclusion by Martha McGinty Stodt and an annotated bibliography (66 entries) by James Thorius. The appendix provides short summaries of the method and goals of 10 sample values education programs. (NB)
