Independent Institutions in Partnership: Sharing Educational Responsibility. Minority on Campus [Series].
National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC. National Inst. of Independent Colleges and Universities.
This booklet focuses on partnerships between and among colleges and universities and partnerships with precollegiate schools as ways to extend the reach and the resources of a higher education institution and better educate minority students. The first of two main sections following an introduction lists the following precepts that are key to the development and maintenance of partnerships between schools and postsecondary institutions: (1) establish clear and specific goals, developed cooperatively by the partners, that benefit each collaborator; (2) formulate and nurture mutual trust and respect among representatives from the partner institutions; (3) create a structure that results in shared governance and decision-making by all partners; (4) develop a sense of shared responsibility among the partners for achieving the goals; and (5) incorporate evaluation procedures in the framework of the partnership, with all partners willing to periodically examine progress toward the partnership's goals. The second section describes and lists a sample of the more that 200 intercollegiate partnerships reported in a recent survey, including the following: (1) five partnerships designed to facilitate recruitment, retention, and transfer; (2) four partnerships for minority scholarship; (3) two partnerships using multiple approaches; and (4) three partnerships for exchanges.
