Supporting a Culture of Collaboration
Share |

GICA’s member institutions partner with each other and the State of Georgia to improve efficiency and contain costs.  Types of collaborative programs include:


Academic Collaborations

GICA campuses partner with one another
and the State to collaborate on academic programs based on shared goals and
interests. These academic
partnerships facilitate more
learning opportunities for
Georgia’s students and reduce the
cost of higher education.




Collaborative Purchasing

GICA campuses leverage the combined
buying power of:

  • 24 GICA member institutions
  • Over 900 other private, not-for-profit institutions comprising the membership of The Coalition for College Cost Savings
  • More than 5,000 campuses that are members of E&I
  • 60,000 members of OMNIA Partners to increase efficiency and reduce operating costs.



Compliance Collaborative Program

The GICA Compliance Collaborative Program (CCP) is a partnership of fifteen GICA member institutions. Staff and faculty members at CCP schools receive both in-person and
web-based training sessions and policy consultation regarding compliance-related issues. The Compliance Collaborative Program addresses all areas of higher education compliance.


Corporate Allies Program

GICA’s Corporate Allies Program (CAP) is designed to promote a closer working relationship between GICA institutions and businesses that support independent, private higher education. Among other benefits, companies who join CAP are invited to sponsor GICA meetings and are sometimes requested to provide educational content at GICA meetings or on GICA webinars.
