CIC Director's Essay Featured on GlobalHigherEd

Feb 04, 2009
CIC Director Barbara McFadden Allen outlines the framework for the organization's success in higher education collaborations in a Jan. 31 guest essay for GlobalHigherEd, a web log that tracks the construction of global knowledge and spaces for the "knowledge economy." Allen highlights factors that have contributed to the CIC's track record of inter-institutional collaboration and suggests that they may be replicated in a global context.


"Our experience in the CIC suggests that it is possible to realize the golden opportunities before us," she wrote. "To harness the great scholarly resources that universities command worldwide will require thoughtful, engaged, and collaborative leadership, and a recognition of the need for sophisticated mechanisms to manage, measure and sustain such efforts."
