University faculty members describe their collaborative projects with other faculty members, rsearchers, graduate students, professional educators, and other stakeholders in the educational enterprise. Through descriptions of several collaborative projects, the chapters explore some of the less explicitly articulated aspects of collaborative ventures.

The authors use a variety of conceptual frameworks, derived from a number of disciplines including education and business, to deconstruct collaboration and to further undernstand its elements, issues, dynamics, and problematics. By confronting the challenges of building genuine and effective collaborative partnerships across institutions and cultures and by examining how the personal and the professional intertwine within the process, the book extends and deepens the dialogue about such partnerships. Collaboration is presented as a deeply personal and professionally challenging enterprise that offers satisfaction and enrichment when it is undertaken with eyes and minds wide open.
