Building Collaborative Relationships examines your institution's processes and systems related to:


  • Identifying key internal and external collaborative relationships
  • Alignment of key collaborative relationships
  • Creating, prioritizing, and building relationships
  • Identifying the need for collaborations and partnerships
  • Building internal relationships

Activity that promotes internal collaboration among individual employees is best addressed in Category 4, Valuing People. Describe here activities that promote internal relationships among groups -- different departments, units, etc.


External collaborative partners might include organizations that are the sources of your entering students (high schools, community colleges, places of work); organizations that are the destination of your exiting students (4-year institutions, graduate schools, places of work); suppliers such as food services, book suppliers, and student recruiting services; external agencies such as state coordinating boards or state, local, or national governments; religious organizations; other institutions or consortia of institutions; etc.
