Abstract
This survey was initiated for the Boyer Commission to examine the development of undergraduate programs in the years since Reinventing Undergraduate Education: A Blueprint for America’s Research Universities was published in 1998. Because the Commission felt the information would be of value to other educators, we decided to share the results. The Boyer Report turned out to be of interest and use beyond research universities to all categories of American institutions and to large numbers of institutions worldwide. However, the current study surveyed only the American research universities that were the focus of the original report. We would like to thank Emily Thomas, who designed and analyzed the survey; Wendy Katkin and Mary Leming, who collected the data and conducted the interviews; and Priscilla Smith who copyedited; their long and dedicated hours of work brought this project to fruition. Thanks too to Milton Glaser, member of the Boyer Commission, who designed the publication, and Wendy Gross, who executed it. Shirley Strum Kenny
