Consortia

International Networking Alliance Of Australian Universities

David Teather
In Consortia, Emeritus Professor David Teather and thirteen other international experts evaluate the new wave of smaller, more homogeneous groupings of universities, known as global consortia.

Throughout the 1990s existing international higher education networks, including the International Association of Universities and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, were joined by a new wave of smaller, more homogeneous groupings of universities, known as global consortia. In Consortia, Emeritus Professor David Teather and thirteen other international experts in the field of higher education evaluate these new alliances. Where do they fit in modern academia, and how effective are they? Do they really provide a competitive edge in the core university businesses of teaching, research and service?

'University education is becoming a global business. Where airlines and other global businesses have gone, universities will follow. This excellent collection of essays explores the extent, operation and potential of a phenomenon—the international consortium or alliance of universities—which will help to shape the sector for years to come.'

Professor Bryan Gould, Vice-Chancellor, University of Waikato
