At the 2002 American Counseling Association Conference, eight individuals presented their experiences in classroom collaboration among four different settings (university classroom, university counseling wellness center, community college classroom, addiction counseling treatment center). Student activities, that were a part of the graduate classroom assignments, consisted of: administering a campus wide alcohol/drug use survey, presenting to a community college class, and conducting interviews at an addiction treatment center. The presentation panel was diverse in terms of: gender, degree type and level, amount of counseling experience (beginning to over twenty years), training level (bachelor's through doctoral), and professional roles (four students, one university professor, one university addiction counselor wellness coordinator, one community college teacher, and one addiction treatment counselor director).
