Sample text

Teiyu Amano, put it later, to the participants in the Tokyo Institute: In the first place, the philosophy of student personnel services is based on the value of dignity of the individual student, and I believe that every effort toward the improved educational programs of universities and colleges to meet the student needs for his optimum development, according to his individuality and potentiality, depends upon the development of student personnel work along the right direction. With this kind of faith, the Ministry officials, the director, and the faculties devoted themselves to persuading Japanese educators of the need for the Institutes.

His recommendation of the Institutes, based as it was on personal experience, was invaluable. Once the Institutes got under way, too, a series of newsletters, distributed to all the colleges and universities of the country, contributed to effective promotion of the Institutes. The letters were informal in nature and told of important events, subject matter, personnel, and organization. Each Institute issued at least one newsletter, and during the Kyoto Institute, when the greatest need was felt, three newsletters were sent.

The term student personnel services was new to Japan. There were no words in the Japanese language that expressed a meaning identical to the English words. After his appointment and arrival in Japan, the director suggested, and the Steering Committee readily agreed, that the English phrase be retained and introduced without change into the Japanese language. This had one distinct advantage. No traditional negative meaning could be attached to it. The work was to receive a new and unprejudiced start in the universities of Japan.
