Human Resources .
SW HATEVER educators may conceive
the purpose of a university to b,
whether the integration of human knowledge or
.the diffusion of "sweetness and light," the aver-
age student still views the university primarily
In terms of a job.
The student can hardly be blamed for ap-
praising his diploma in materialistic terms. A
steady income, secure future, opportunity to
rise, congenial occupation, and the respect of his
fellows seem a necessary prelude to cultural en-
Many a student has awakened just before
graduation to find that he has been sleep-walking
for four years. He loathes the laboratory or the
ledger desk toward which he has blindly drifted.
Or perhaps he is fitted for nothing more special-
ized than the shipping room or the production
Many more fall by the wayside long before
commencement, frust'rated victims of courses in-
compatible with aptitudes and interests.
In justice to the community which supports
it, a university may well deem among its highest
duties the guidance of individuals into programs
of study which will not only prepare them for
happy, useful lives but also guarantee society
the maximum return on its investment in the
way of productive services.
The University of Michigan has not been blind
to these responsibilities. It has recognized them
in a two-fold way: first by requiring a reasonable
amount of specialization as prerequisite to a
degree; second by establishing the Bureau of
Appointments and Occupational Information.
Dedicated to the double task of adjusting stu-
dents to the opportunities of the world after
graduation and of moulding the student's cur-
riculum to harmonize with abilities and interests,
the Bureau is an educational investment that has
yielded rich dividends.
For ten years it has maintained a nation-wide
"clearing house" of employment, placing hun-
dreds of graduates in responsible positions. Per-
haps more important in the long-run, it has
helped hundreds of students "find themselves"
who might otherwise have ended hopeless fail-
ures, of little benefit to society or themselves.
The Bureau has accomplished this through
interest ratings, aptitude tests, personality in-
ventories and sympathetic counseling for the
individual; through vocational conferences and
lectures for students in the mass.
In this constantly expanding program of con-
servation and maximizing of human resources,
the Bureau has found itself seriously cramped by
inadequate quarters and understaffed person-
nel, the inevitable manifestations of a skimpy
budget. As a result overcrowded offices have in-
convenienced prospective employers who desire
private interviews with students, and many
placements have doubtless been lost.
In the light of what already has been accom-
plished, one wonders what good might be done
If the Regents saw fit to allot the Bureau a few
thousand dollars more each year. Perhaps voca-
tional guidance service could be made standard
equipment for all entering freshmen, saving hun-
dreds of students needless waste of time, money
effort and confidence in bucking physics or
mathematics when they might be far happier
in tackling law or medicine.
An alumnus seeking a way to benefit his state
and university could find no better purpose for
his funds. -Jack Canavan
