Founded in 1971, the Christian College Consortium is a group of thirteen Christian colleges and universities located across the United States who–through scholarships, conferences and exchange programs—serve the cause of Christ in higher education by encouraging and assisting one another in the pursuit of their respective missions. Through semester-long Consortium programs, such as the Student Visitor Program, students from member institutions study at other Consortium colleges or on off-campus and study abroad programs. In addition, the Vechery Scholarship provides annual awards to students from each Consortium member institution. From the beginning, however, the Consortium has been a place for collaboration and mutual edification; where leaders in Christian higher education can come together to improve the effectiveness of their work both at home and around the world.
