Samuel Abraham and Laurent Boetsch were recently invited to a meeting of the Global Liberal Arts Alliance at Denison University (USA) to introduce ECOLAS and its objectives to senior administrators from among the 29 institutions worldwide that make up the GLAA. Their presentation focused on the history of ECOLAS and its activities with a special section devoted to the current Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership initiative, BLASTER. The lively discussion that followed the presentation examined short-, medium-, and long-range opportunities for collaboration between ECOLAS and its affiliated institutions and the schools associated with the GLAA including issues regarding student access, mutual communication and funding strategies and faculty networking. Both consortia agreed to continue discussing possibilities of mutual collaboration.
