Crossing Borders, Breaking Boundaries: Collaboration among Higher Education Institutions
Duffield, Stacy; Olson, Alan; Kerzman, Renee
Innovative Higher Education, v38 n3 p237-250 Jun 2013
Partnerships and collaboration have become popular in higher education; and partnerships with community agencies, K-12 schools, and businesses are common. However, formal and sustained partnerships among institutions of higher education are not nearly as widespread. This article presents a model for collaboration in higher education focused on a partnership among teacher preparation programs at three institutions. The article provides an overview of theoretical underpinnings for collaboration, the process and practices used, and lessons learned by Valley Partnership, as well as the stages of partnership development, the governance model, and key elements related to sustaining the partnership.
