One of the underlying premises of IGEN’s collaborative approach is that our consortium of colleges can achieve more by working together then they can achieve individually. In other words, the whole of our state-wide network adds up to more than the sum of our individual parts. This is the same outlook that we apply in our approach to collaborative partnerships.

IGEN and our partners share a common vision and purpose to help grow the state’s economy, create resilient communities and prepare students for exciting careers. This shared understanding builds trust and an openness to innovate and recognizes the value and contribution of our network. Our collaborative nature leads to improved coordination of programs and service delivery, and, ultimately, better outcomes.
