Abstract or Summary
  • The purposes of this investigation are twofold: (1) to identify the functions necessary for an adequate student personnel program in the two-year community college and (2) to develop guidelines based on the functions identified. Securing And Treating Of Data: The data for this study were obtained by using a questionnaire which was sent to each of the 100 two-year public colleges in the western states of United States. Eighty-six officials returned the completed questionnaire. The data consisted of the number of colleges having or desiring to have certain functions for the student personnel services. Four classifications are presented: colleges under 1, 000 FTE; colleges between 1, 000 and 5, 000 FTE; colleges above 5, 000 FTE; and the totals. Findings: The answers on the questionnaire show much agreement on these points: recognition of the student personnel program by administrators and students; need for a single head of the student personnel program with a master's degree or more; desirability of a student representative group to work with a faculty group to assist in the student personnel program; and clear-cut objectives and philosophy for the program. Areas of the program receiving high percentages of agreement are selecting and admitting students, extracurricular activities, and record keeping. Less agreement was found in areas of testing, placement, follow-up, and financial assistance; however, sufficient agreement to indicate definite guidelines was shown in all 12 areas. A tentative set of guidelines for student personnel services in the two-year community college was determined from the identified functions necessary for an adequate student personnel program. These guidelines were sent to ten specialists in student personnel services in the two-year college and these men made their evaluation of the guidelines. From this tentative set of guidelines and consideration of the recommendations of the specialists, a final set of guidelines was determined. Recommendations: As a result of this investigation and the formulation of a set of guidelines for student personnel services in the two-year community college, the writer makes the following recommendations: (1) The guidelines should be used by experienced practitioners for clarifying and conceptualizing the functions in the student personnel program in the two-year community college. (2) The guidelines are more likely to foster student personnel program development in the two year community college if used in institutional self-study rather then in any external appraisal. (3) The guidelines should be used to evaluate an existing student personnel program in a two-year community college. (4) The guidelines should be used in organizing the student personnel program in a two-year community college. (5) A comparison should be made of these guidelines and guidelines for student personnel services in four-year colleges and guidelines for student personnel services in universities to ascertain whether or not a common set of guidelines could be formulated for student personnel services in all educational institutions even though certain functions would not be applicable to some institutions. (6) A study similar to this study should be conducted in the various sections of United States and then the guidelines should be compared for: (a) Differences and similarities (b) Organizing a set of guidelines which would serve for all student personnel services in the two-year community colleges in the United States.
