A group of Bay area colleges are working together to create more opportunities for students to get their degrees.
Through a partnership called the Consortium of Colleges on the Creative Coast, students could be enrolled in one school, but taking classes at another.
“We thought ‘What an opportunity to capitalize on the assets we all bring to the region,’ ” said Dr. Sandra Stone, who is the Regional Chancellor at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee campus.
The consortium includes the University of South Florida, New College of Florida, Ringling College of Art and Design, State College of Florida, Eckerd and the Florida State University program at Ringling.
