This project was conducted in the undergraduate residences of Paton College. The project dealt with the student assistants who work in these residences as part time helpers. The project employed an interviewing process and a pilot training workshop and an evaluation of the workshop to gather data on the various aspects of the present system. Also a new system was developed which included the following components:- -- (1) A new role definition (and a change in name) from prefect to resident assistant -- (2) A new selection procedure with the change from "election" to "application, screening, and appointment" -- (3) A training program which emphasized communication skills and leadership development -- (4) Written materials which include the newly developed "Handbook for Resident Assistants" in addition to the university calendar, the Guide to Junior Division Courses and Guide to Self-Improvement.
