Summary

Few publications on interinstitutional cooperation go beyond a description, generally a glowing one, of individual programs and activities. Yet many problems beset an effort of formalized cooperation. (1) There is often a great difference between "cooperation" as an abstraction and "cooperation" as a practical reality. The mere formalization of a cooperative center does not lead automatically to cooperative behavior on the part of the participants. (2) For each consortium created, the primary orientation of faculty, administration, and students will remain toward the home institution. (3) Unrealistic expectations for the consortium often lead to frustration. (4) An early "search for identity" is common for most consortia, and actual programs may be slow to start. (5) It is difficult for a consortium to draw up rational long-range plans or suitable programs if its members are unwilling or unable to construct their own plans, or unwilling to share in the consortium plans. (6) Creating a consortium does not lead to automatic financial support. Recognizing their limitations, consortia should nevertheless seek institutional change, revitalization and administrative efficiency. (AF)
