Student Life Issues: From the Front Lines.
Gallin, Alice, Ed.
Current Issues in Catholic Higher Education, v10 n2 p1-34 Win 1990
Issues on college student life are presented, focusing on first, the results of a questionnaire survey asking Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU) college and university presidents to name what they consider to be the three most immediate student life concerns and, second, ACCU Student Life Task Force discussions on the data produced by the questionnaire. Four recommendations are made to presidents of Catholic colleges and universities: (1) take a leadership role on campus in demonstrating Catholic values; (2) encourage and support the formation of a national association which will provide a forum for identifying student life issues; (3) know the students; and (4) engage the entire college community in efforts of student development. After an introduction and preface, seven papers have the following titles and authors: "ACCU Student Life Questionnaire: A Report" (Dorothy M. Riley); "The Responsibility of Community: Perceptions on Alcohol and Human Sexuality on Catholic Campuses" (John. J. DeGioia); "Faith Development in College Students; (Julia A. Lane); "Self-Esteem: The Foundation for Growth" (Joan E. Bristol and Jane Novack); "The Role of the President in Student Affairs" (Dorothy M. Brown); "Catholic Colleges and Universities in Service to the Community" (Paul C. Reinert); and "Community Service: An Integral Part of the Catholic Academic Mission" (Jean M. Wilkowski). (SM)
