Creating Campus Community: In Search of Ernest Boyer?s Legacy
What reviewers are saying:
“Connecting authentically and deeply with others across all dimensions of life enriches the human spirit. The sense of community resulting from such connections is a hallmark of a supportive campus environment, which we know is an important factor in enhancing student learning. The contributions to this book offer a vision we can work toward and provide instructive examples from different types of institutions to point the way.” –George D. Kuh, chancellor’s professor and director, National Survey of Student Engagement, Indiana University
“This well-written and timely book draws on the lessons learned from five very different institutions as they attempted to address a major challenge to higher education-building effective campus communities. Practitioners will find this to be an invaluable resource and guide as they attempt to bring Ernie Boyer’s vision to life on their campuses. A great tribute to one of America’s leading educators!” –Charles C. Schroeder, professor of higher education, University of Missouri-Columbia
