Great Lakes Universities Launch Binational Consortium

The Council of the Great Lakes Region, the University of Illinois system and the University of Toronto announced Thursday they are launching the Great Lakes Higher Education Consortium, a binational consortium that will focus on solving socioeconomic and environmental challenges.

The formation of the consortium will be administered by the council and co-chaired by the University of Illinois system and the University of Toronto.

“Great Lakes higher education institutions have played a vital role in building the region’s companies, industries, workforce and cities, turning the Great Lakes into the lynchpin of the United States-Canada relationship and North American commerce,” Mark Fisher, president and CEO of the Council of the Great Lakes Region, said in a press release. “By launching the binational Great Lakes Higher Education Consortium, the stage is set for positioning the region as a global leader in producing the talent of the future, solving global challenges through innovation, and supporting a new generation of entrepreneurs that will transform the region and drive commerce.”
