This document is a compendium of descriptions of 163 innovative programs and services for commuter college and university students from campuses across the nation. Entries include a brief description of the program, statement of goals, rationale, and pertinent background information; resources including staff, volunteer, and funding; evaluation efforts; submission data; and the names and addresses of individuals who may be contacted for further information. The descriptions that are included were selected from many submissions for their effectiveness for commuter students, their innovative character, their relevance to a variety of functional areas, and their transferability to other institutions.
