Campbell University, member of North Carolina Independent Colleges & Universities.

The average private, independent college or university is often under-served in the purchasing marketplace because its total consumption of supplies, equipment and services, as a single institution, is not sufficiently large to result in consistently competitive pricing. 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. 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.
