Consortium

group of professionals sitting around a table working together, Consortium Landing Page

The strength of our consortium comes from the collaborative spirit of our Members. They advise Unizin and each other about how they are charting their paths to improving the teaching and learning experience. Our Members discuss the challenges they face, share best practices, and keep the solutions focused on achieving results. A number of communities, task forces, and other groups keep us action-oriented.
Having a collective voice helps us succeed.
