CIC - Committee on Institutional Cooperation

The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), established in 1958, is the academic consortium of thirteen major teaching and research universities. The CIC member institutions are the University of Chicago, the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign campus), Indiana University, University of Nebraska, the University of Iowa, the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, the University of Minnesota, Northwestern University, Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University, Purdue University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

By focusing institutional efforts and enhancing them through cooperative activities, the CIC and its member universities have effectively complemented and augmented institutional programs without supplanting them or reducing their individual importance. By designing and implementing model programs that can be applied and adapted to the needs and circumstances of individual universities, the CIC continues to bring together the combined force and resources of each for the benefit of all.
