AICUO Partner: The Coalition

The Coalition for College Cost Savings (The Coalition) was conceived as a catalyst for the first comprehensive and collaborative purchasing effort focused exclusively on independent, private higher education. The Coalition’s goals are to leverage the collective buying power of private colleges to reduce operating costs, improve the efficiency of internal procedures and ultimately lower the cost of delivering education.

By combining a single institution’s purchase volume with hundreds of similar institutions throughout the country, the created market strength of private colleges enables competitive leverage rivaled only by the largest of corporations. Current programs include: E&I Cooperative Services, Pan-American Life Insurance Group, Liberty Mutual, United Healthcare Students, and Paymerang.
