Toward the Future Vitality of Student Development Services: Traverse City--Five Years Later. Summary Report of the Annual Leadership Colloquium (6th, Traverse City, Michigan, July 26-29, 1989).
Keys, Robert C., Ed.
As a result of the 1984 National Council on Student Development (NCSD) Leadership Colloquium, a report was developed presenting a series of seven recommendations and accompanying strategies for strengthening student development services. Entitled, "Traverse City Statement: Toward the Future Vitality of Student Development Services," the report served as the basis for the Sixth Annual NCSD Leadership Colloquium. At the 1989 colloquium, special work groups were formed to examine and revise each of the original 1984 recommendations. Following an introduction, chapter 1 of this three-part report provides the opening address of the conference, "Student Development 2000 or Traverse City Revisited" by John E. Roueche. Chapter 2 examines six of the seven 1984 recommendations, including the following articles: (1) "Contributing to Quality Reaffirmation and Program Accountability," by Stephen J. Maier; (2) "Strengthening Partnerships with Community Constituencies," by Donald J. Slowinski; (3) "Strengthening Partnerships with Internal (Campus) Constituencies," by Donald J. Slowinski; (4) "Creatively Managing Resources: Doing More With Less?" by Joanna K. Michelich; (5) "Enrollment Management and Student Persistence," by Jo N. Beene; and (6) "Integrating Student Development into the Educational Experience," by Linda Dayton. Finally, Chapter 3 presents a summary of recommendations made by the work groups reviewing the 1984 statements. Appendix A provides a reprint of the 1984 Traverse City Statement, and appendix B presents results of the fall 1989 national survey of two-year college student services officers about their use of and commitment to the objectives identified in the statement.
