This paper is a survey on the {\em Zimmer program}. In it's broadest form, this program seeks an understanding of actions of large groups on compact manifolds. The goals of this survey are $(1)$ to put in context the original questions and conjectures of Zimmer and Gromov that motivated the program, $(2)$ to indicate the current state of the art on as many of these conjectures and questions as possible and $(3)$ to indicate a wide variety of open problems and directions of research.
