Is a shared liberal arts college network the best path forward?

Reported by EdSurge, as many less selective liberal arts colleges across the country face difficult financial challenges about which 20 programs they need to cut to design a financially responsible way forward, is intelligent collaboration between other like institutions our best option here?

Because none of us want these degree programs to disappear. But it may also not make practical sense for each of our institutions to run all of them.

The takeaway? Can our liberal arts colleges still provide the education and on-campus experience students have always chose them for? But only if we embrace a hybrid model that allows for some online resource sharing between one another? 

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
