Ernest L. Boyer, former President of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and Chancellor of the State University of New York, published countless reports and books offering an insider's description of the challenges faced on today's college and university campuses. He also identified concrete suggestions for improving the quality of each student's educational experience by advocating collaboration between academic and student affairs staff to provide an educational environment that makes learning in and out of the classroom seamless. Boyer's principles challenged educators to create new models for improving the quality of the collegiate experience. In that spirit, and inspired by Boyer's challenge, several colleges and universities have created model programs, both circular and co-curricular, that embrace Boyer's views of collaboration and community. This paper outlines those programs which include: the Ernest L. Boyer Laboratory for Learning, Carson-Newman College; the Community Awareness Program, Central Missouri State University; the Campus Compact, Oregon State University; Five-Year Strategic Plan, Penn State University; and Student-Community Development Graduate Program, State University of New York, Stony Brook.
