Do It Ourselves Higher Education

1. FIND OUT ABOUT CO-OPERATIVES

A co-operative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise.

2. READ ABOUT CO-OPERATIVE HIGHER EDUCATION

There is a growing bibliography of articles, reports, presentations and book chapters that discuss the idea of a ‘co-operative university’.

3. HOW CO-OPERATIVE IS YOUR UNIVERSITY?

We have developed a diagnostic tool for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to reveal the extent of co-operative provision within an institution and assess to what extent a co-operative model already exists, is viable, and how it might be further developed.

4. USE EXPERT RESOURCES FOR CO-OPERATIVE HIGHER EDUCATION

Practical support for the development of co-operatives is available in most countries and co-operatives are also widely researched around the world. Find out who can support you to develop co-operative higher education. 

Researchers from this project are available for consultancy on any aspect of co-operative higher education. We have developed a framework for co-operative higher education that is intended to support, both conceptually and practically, the development and implementation of co-operative higher education. We have considerable experience of progressive institutional change projects in higher education, such as Student as Producer and Learning Landscapes. Please contact Prof. Mike Neary if you require further advice.
