In the Eastern Townships, Collaboration is a Vibrant Tradition

The creation of the PRESE has reinforced decompartmentalization of the college and university establishments, to share and develop expertise along many fields in higher education.  This opportunity brings together college and university-level establishments, and both the francophone and anglophone academic cultures.  

Since 2018, the PRESE made it possible to shuttle shared information and expertise between the administration of the five establishments, as well as faculty and teachers from college and university communities.

The PRESE reinvents the way to create projects in higher education by combining the expertise of colleges and universities.

These new collaborations and innovations create impactful benefits on establishments, the student body in the Eastern Townships, and the regional community.
