Presidents of six small liberal arts colleges in rural Michigan have been talking for a decade about the possibility of adopting a consortium model to facilitate sharing courses and other resources. Online programs are increasingly popular solutions to this issue in higher education, but they don’t necessarily meet the small-classroom characteristics of a liberal arts education.┬áLast fall, at long last, a surprising path forward emerged.
