Tulsa Higher Education Consortium brings together Higher Education institutions for Spring Convening
Attendees at THE Consortium’s Fall 2022 Convening learn and share ideas.
Higher education and community leaders will come together to collaborate and share innovative ideas for supporting Tulsa-area college and university students. On Tuesday, April 18, the Tulsa Higher Education Consortium (THE Consortium) will host their annual Spring Convening at Rogers State University. The event will include a keynote address from BerThaddaeus Bailey, Director of My Brother’s Keeper with ImpactTulsa. In addition to hearing from student and higher education leader panels, attendees will collaborate and connect with professionals who are working to support northeast Oklahoma students on their journeys to degree completion and beyond.
“The work of the Tulsa Higher Education Consortium is critical in meeting the workforce needs of the Tulsa area and the surrounding region,” said Dr. Larry Rice, President of Rogers State University. “We welcome the members of the Consortium to our campus as we continue to explore new opportunities to expand seamless educational options for a growing number of students.”
The Tulsa Higher Education Consortium is a collaboration of eight northeast Oklahoma higher education institutions and seven affiliate organizations.
“The collaboration that occurs within the programs and convenings of the Tulsa Higher Education Consortium is transformational. Tulsa is home to incredible higher education institutions filled with experts and leaders of all disciplines. Working together as a consortium of institutions, these groups are able to engage in innovative research and collaborative efforts that bring positive attention to northeast Oklahoma,” commented Dr. Laura Latta, Executive Director of THE Consortium.
Founded in 2021, the Consortium first began as the Tulsa Transfer Project, creating many seamless degree pathways for students from TCC to other Tulsa-area institutions. The project evolved into the Tulsa Higher Education Task Force, a group of institutional and community leaders who established THE Consortium.
“Working together, institutions and affiliate community members of the consortium can leverage our efforts to mitigate barriers and smooth degree pathways to provide students and their families opportunities to thrive,” said Dr. Pamela Fly, who serves as both the chair of THE Consortium’s advisory board and Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs for Northeastern State University.
THE Consortium is committed to advancing student learning, improving student success and degree completion, achieving equity in outcomes, and meeting workforce needs by working collaboratively to increase higher education opportunities in the region.
