Uniting Education and Research

The VIP Consortium focuses on a project-based model for higher education that unites undergraduate education and faculty research in a team-based context.  Through Vertically Integrated Projects programs, students participate in long-term large-scale projects, faculty benefit from their VIP teams’ research and design efforts, and the program provides institutions with a scalable model for project-based learning.  Consortium members seek to establish VIP in a variety of institutions, share effective practices, evaluate the VIP model, and disseminate experiences and findings.
