PA liberal arts consortium receives media attention

A recently-formed consortium of Pennsylvania liberal arts colleges, including Gettysburg, was featured in multiple media outlets in July, including the Associated Press, Patriot-News, Philadelphia Inquirer, Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Ed, Gettysburg Times, and IT Business Net.

From the Inquirer:

As pressure to control tuition costs mounts, 10 private liberal arts colleges in Pennsylvania are creating a consortium to save money and improve offerings by collaborating on staff training, course offerings, study abroad, library resources and other areas.

The new Pennsylvania Consortium for the Liberal Arts, which involves Bryn Mawr, Haverford, Swarthmore and Ursinus colleges locally, will be funded with a three-year, $800,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Other colleges involved include: Dickinson in Carlisle, Franklin & Marshall in Lancaster, Gettysburg, Juniata in Huntingdon, Muhlenberg in Allentown and Washington & Jefferson in Washington.
