About the Boyer Commission

The Equity/Excellence Imperative

A 2030 Blueprint for Undergraduate Education at U.S. Research Universities

The world is a very different place than it was in 1998, and that is why a new Boyer Commission was needed to recommend ways to guarantee excellence and equity in undergraduate education for today’s college students.

— Barbara R. Snyder, co-chair of the Boyer 2030 Commission and President of the Association of American Universities

Boyer 2030 Commissioners Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Sarah Newman, Deborah Santiago, Holden Thorp, and Beth Loizeaux offer perspectives on the report. Shirley Strum Kenny, former President of Stony Brook University and chair of the 1998 Boyer Commission, and Bob Kenny, who drafted the 1998 Report, also appear.
