Cross College Alliance: new goals, powerful network

In 2015, it was announced that six institutions — New College of Florida, Ringling College of Art and Design, University of South Florida Sarasota Manatee, State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota, Eckerd College and The Ringling/FSU — had come together to form the Consortium of Colleges on the Creative Coast, or C4.
