The VIP Community

The VIP Model is unique in that all participants, including faculty, benefit equally from being on or leading a VIP Team. 

VIP Consortium is a vibrant and supportive community of VIP sites and program coordinators who exchange knowledge, create research partnerships, and work together to improve outcomes for students around the world. See the global site map.

VIP Community In Action

VIP equips students and faculty with a global network of knowledge seekers, cultivating learning partnerships that foster collaborations between disciplines - and even between different institutions. At Georgia Tech, Electronic ARTrium is one such project: the team consists of students studying engineering, design, computer science, and music technology; faculty from the schools of Music, Industrial Design and Music; and experts from L3Harris and Georgia Tech Research Institute.

Collaboration and Knowledge Sharing


The Consortium facilitates collaborative research and publications among VIP program leaders in targeted research areas, such as artificial intelligence, sustainable development, and VIP in the humanities. Collaborative investigation advances the state of knowledge in various fields, and the findings are shared during the Annual Meeting.

Members of the VIP Consortium work together to develop evidence-based assessments of VIP program success and student outcomes. Their findings are used to refine the VIP model, develop student evaluation tools, and provide mutual support.
