Survive & Thrive Through A Higher Education Consortium

In this episode of The EdUp Experience, we welcome Dr. Andrew Flagel, President of the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metro Area.  Andrew began is appointment on July 13, 2020 in the midst of the CV-19 crisis.  Hear him talk about how the 17 universities of the consortia work together for the common good.  The value in this episode is how Andrew breaks down the value in a consortium agreement and gives other institutions a breakdown of collaborative pathways that could underpin new models in higher education. 

The Consortium has one of the oldest and most robust course-sharing collaborations in the country. It provides a unified voice on behalf of its members to local and regional governments, as well as to business/industry and other organizations by serving as a single point of contact, by participating on boards and as members of organizations, and through convenings. The Consortium provides numerous services to its members, including government relations and organizational liaison functions, and fostering opportunities for new areas of collaboration ranging from grants to degree programs.
