Sharing Ideas: Tough Times Encourage Colleges to Collaborate
Fain, Paul; Blumenstyk, Goldie; Sander, Libby
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n23 pA20 Feb 2009
Tough times are encouraging colleges to share resources in a variety of areas, including campus security, research, and degree programs. Despite its veneer of cooperation, higher education is a competitive industry, where resource sharing is eyed warily. But the recession is chipping away at that reluctance, and institutions are pursuing partnerships, both to cut costs and to keep pace with expanding academic fields,. although some experts remain skeptical that partnerships will gain much ground, even in a rough economy. The authors discuss three new or expanding partnerships in the areas of: (1) joining forces; (2) sharing networks; and (3) linking classrooms.
