Over the course of three days, you will learn what makes collaboration work; what derails it; and how to engage in consortial work through a curriculum that ensures participants understand a body of knowledge leading to effective collaboration. 


The curriculum covers:

  • An overview of consortial leadership, highlighting a range of organizational structures across consortia
  • Collaboration, leadership, governance and vision
  • Strategic planning, action plans and assessment to bring mission and goals into reality
  • Communicating within and about the consortium - strategies and tactics for sharing your good work
  • Financial strategies and techniques

Capstone Project:

Participants will work on a capstone project through the entire institute, and leave the institute with clear action plans and a way forward to implement their project upon returning to their organization.
