WAICU works with our members to develop the best collaborative agreements for private, nonprofit higher education institutions. WAICU does not endorse products or services without appropriate due diligence. Once a service is established, WAICU staff remain involved to "trouble shoot," facilitate continuous quality improvement, and, as appropriate, re-bid. Each of these services must have a "collaborative dimension”—i.e. it must be better in terms of cost and quality than an individual member could achieve on its own.
