About The Coalition for College Cost Savings
The Coalition for College Cost Savings (www.thecoalition.us) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, established in 2006. 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. From the earliest conceptual discussions of its structure in 2004, the Coalition has grown to 34 member organizations in 30 states that collectively serve nearly 900 private colleges and over three million students.
