The recently launched Tulsa Higher Education Consortium hopes to increase the number of bachelor’s degrees awarded and offer better economic mobility for Tulsans. The initiative brings together leaders from the higher education, business and civic arenas to achieve that objective.

The consortium, which was formalized recently, is a joint effort between a number of regional colleges and universities, along with community and civic organizations, to streamline the process and make it easier for more students to get four-year degrees. The effort endeavors to train local talent and keep it in the Tulsa area.

Nationally there are over 60 similar higher education consortia.The new Tulsa Higher Education Consortium, or THE Consortium as it’s called, is part of a national association and consulted with six partner consortia in developing its own plan.

Schools involved in the consortium include Tulsa Community College, the University of Tulsa, Langston University-Tulsa, Northeastern State University, Oklahoma State University-Tulsa, Rogers State University and the University of Oklahoma-Tulsa

Other partners in the effort include ImpactTulsa, the city of Tulsa, Tulsa Community Foundation, the Tulsa Regional Chamber, the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. Read the Entire Article
