Institutional Priorities

Faculty-Governed and Led

Faculty Governance is the key to high-quality small private college education. Thus, every class passes through the same traditional governance process.

Institutional Autonomy

No institution-level decisions are made at the consortium level. We simply develop new programs and initiatives and each institution decides whether to participate or not.

Small Class Sizes

We believe that the personal attention our faculty members can provide with small student-to-faculty ratios is critical to effective education.

Liberal Arts

We are committed to preserving the role of the liberal arts at the foundation of the small private college experience. 

4-Year On-Campus Experience

We believe in the centrality of the traditional, 4-year on-campus experience. These shared majors are designed to enhance and complement it

Lower Cost. Career Ready.

Our goal: improve outcomes and reduce tuition through the establishment of new shared majors designed by leading academics and taught by our own faculty.

Lower Cost. Career Ready.
