Transforming Higher Education through Interdisciplinary, Team-Based, Experiential Learning 

The VIP Consortium is a global alliance of colleges and universities advancing Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) programs.  In VIP, undergraduate and graduate students participate in ambitious, long-term projects led by faculty; faculty benefit from their VIP teams’ contributions to ongoing scholarship and exploration efforts; and universities gain a scalable model for high-impact, project-based learning.  Through the VIP Consortium, VIP sites collaborate to share effective practices, evaluate and improve the VIP model, disseminate experiences and findings, and help establish VIP programs in a variety of institutions around the world.
