SOCCIS: A Regional Model

Resources: Cost Sharing & the Commitment of Institutional Members

SOCCIS has successfully weathered several years of budgetary stringency in higher education, underscoring the fact that member institutions value the benefits derived from participation in the consortium. Membership dues are paid by each consortium member, $500.00 for the four-year institutions and $250.00 for the community colleges. These funds are used for program support; there are no administrative salaries or overhead costs. Member institutions are expected to play important roles in consortium functions by hosting and cost-sharing the implementation of programs.
