Based on a year-long study of campus life undertaken in cooperation with the American Council on Education, this report suggests six fundamental guiding principles for building community on the contemporary campus. It includes a thoughtful analysis of current problems and challenges and highlights two major surveys of presidents and student affairs officers. (Appendices contain survey data from the Carnegie Foundation 1989 National Survey of College and University Presidents, the American Council on Education, and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators 1989 National Survey of Chief Student Affairs Officers.)
