What is the VIP Consortium? 

With support from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, the VIP Consortium was established in the spring of 2015. The Consortium includes a wide variety of colleges and universities including large and small, public and private, as well as HBCUs and Hispanic-serving institutions.  Prior to the establishment of the consortium, there were four existing VIP sites (Purdue University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Strathclyde, and National Ilan University), and two sites with very similar programs (University of Michigan and Texas A&M). The initial consortium engaged nine additional institutions new to VIP, each establishing programs in their initial year. The consortium has grown well beyond these fifteen early institutions and continues to grow within the US and internationally.  Through the consortium, partner institutions seek to: establish VIP in a variety of institutions; share effective practices; evaluate the VIP model; and disseminate experiences and findings.
