The Emerging Role of the Community College Counselor. Highlights: An ERIC/CAPS Digest.
The increase in adult, minority, women, part-time, and displaced students attending community colleges has caused the roles of community college counselors to shift from an "in loco parentis" emphasis on personal counseling, vocational guidance and social support to new roles as student developers and learning agents. As student developers, counselors must communicate the importance of academic skill-building, and help students understand the value of their academic endeavors. As learning agents, counselors must assist, manage, and encourage students to build a pattern of success. (TE)
