Rex Taylor @ Skelleftea

[Rex Taylor](http://www.cc.gla.ac.uk/newstaff/r_taylor.htm) talked about multi-institutional campuses (campi?).

The University of South Scotland started in 1994 with a grassroots political campaign. The local government set up a campus and invited existing institutions to locate there. Glasgow and Paisley universities joined, as did Bell College and Dumfries and Gallloway College.

This was a bit more foreign as a topic to me, though I certainly appreciate the idea of sharing not only content and tools, but also campus infrastructure!

I liked the view that there were “centrifugal” and “centripetal” forces that strengthen or weaken collaboration.
