The Student Compass Website – The Expanded Student Compass Website link can be found in the Blogroll in the right hand column. The Website is a fairly comprehensive elaboration of the Student Compass philosophy, mission, programs and intentions. Because the work of The Student Compass is complex and multi-year it is quite different than other student based support services because it addresses the transitions that students are confronted with as they gradually flow into adulthood developing cognitively and emotionally from adolescents into vested adults. The general social expectation is that this happens during the 4 years of college and at the end of that post-secondary experience, out pops an adult ready and able to engage the world. Nothing can be farther from the truth, especially in the contemporary society of todays’ America. The Student Compass is fully aware that students struggle to figure out how to manage their lives and create realistic and appropriate goals that match their tone, temperament and abilities, potential and real. That is why we mentor students. We don’t tell students what they should do, we don’t “counsel” or “guide”. But rather we help students think about themselves, their futures, the realities of their changing world and practice developing a plan (s) that they design for themselves so they can have a better look at what they need to do to get to their future. And so what we do is work with students on planning for their open lives, and developing greater independence and “self-agency”, taking responsibility for their futures so they can be happy, productive and capable individuals, contributing to their community, country and world.
