This report presents the viewpoints and arguments made during a meeting of higher education administrators who were assembled to discuss how college unions and student activities contribute to a sense of community on campus.

Participants were the following: Winston Shindell, Association of College Unions--International (ACU-I) president; Richard Blackburn, ACU-I executive director; William Brattain, assistant vice-president for student services at Western Illinois University; Frank Cianciola, director of the Michigan Union at the University of Michigan; Ted Crabb, director of the Wisconsin Union at the University of Wisconsin, Madison; Martha Dawson, vice president of academic affairs at Hampton University; Larry Huffman, president of Kankakee Community College; William Johnston, director of Southern Methodist University's Hughes-Trigg Student Center; Bruce Kaiser, director of Northwestern University's Norris University Center; Norman F.
