Today, the consortium has moved toward different ways of integrating the strengths of technology, access to information, and strategic alliances to the creation of new opportunities in education, including the implementation of different levels of collaboration among educational institutions, the private corporate sector, and other related organizations. HETS gives us all an opportunity to envision a better future for education and for the success of our college students, which soon will be the face of our professional workforce.
