Values Education in College and Universities: An Overview of Collaborative Projects between Student Affairs and Academic Affairs.
Gilson, Joan Tedrow
This paper provides an overview of current student development programs that include values education and that represent collaborative work between student affairs and academic affairs divisions. It examines a variety of programs, including freshman seminars designed to promote retention, interdisciplinary courses and seminars at all levels, and total systems of design that have significantly transformed the culture of their institutions in the process of meeting the needs of students. The paper discusses collaborative theory, milieu management, and values development pedagogy as a theory base for these programs. It also provides a brief discussion of the advantages of such education to the schools, students, and communities involved. The paper identifies existing values education programs including: University 101 (University of North Carolina); Academic Intervedntion Program (Rider College); New Student Seminar (Duquesne University); Guided Studies Seminar (El Centro Community College); and the Sierra Project (University of California at Irvine). The paper explores two values education programs, at Seattle University and Syracuse University, which reflect the assumptions of collaborative theory, student development philosophy, and milieu management. Twenty-five references are attached. (MG)
