Our institutions cooperate to establish new, enrollment-driving majors and minors that are far more affordable for us and our students. We do this by partnering with Rize Education to deliver premium, online courses, taught by our member institutions, and built exclusively for schools that value the small college experience.
Colleges and universities in the consortium—and counting.
Full degree programs, built by academics, experts, and industry leaders.
New academic programs started by LCMC members.
Faculty-Governed and Led
Faculty governance is the cornerstone of small private college education. All collaborative majors therefore pass through your faculty governance process.
Small Class Sizes
These programs are designed for the low student-to-faculty ratio and personalized attention that small colleges are built on.
4-Year On-Campus Instruction
Collaborative majors enhance the on-campus college experience central to student development.
The consortium gives access to the programs in partnership with Rize, and each school decides whether and how to participate on their own terms.
We believe liberal arts are an ideal core for any field of study. We strongly value the critical thinking skills and cultural awareness students gain from a liberal arts foundation.
No Compromise on Quality
Our vision is to improve outcomes and reduce tuition through the establishment of new collaborative majors—designed by leading experts, taught by instructors at LCMC institutions.
