Many colleges and universities are turning to partnerships to bolster their academic offerings at an affordable cost. This paper provides a roadmap for undertaking curricular joint ventures—collaborations that allow innovative colleges and universities to gain economies of scale, reach new students, share investments, and build on complementary strengths. Cooperating to Compete is the third paper in ACE’s Changing Enterprise project, a two-year initiative to map and analyze the ways colleges and universities are capitalizing on their teaching and learning activities in response to increased competition, globalization, and changing fiscal realities.
