Strategic Partnerships – the New Future?
When the future depends on strategic partnerships with economic development agencies, how can a community college develop a strategy which facilitates such a partnership and stays focused on building the best educational programmes possible? This presentation is based on the theoretical framework of private/public partnerships and public/public partnerships in a European setting. Niels Brock’s I-House has secured funding from a regional economic development agency. The funding is extensive but what is the impact on the I-House? and what are the implications? The presentation will entail reflections and recommendations on how to create a strategic partnership which enables the college to retain as much influence as possible in order to fulfill the vision and mission of the college whilst obtaining financial support.
