These professionals found a shared passion for their work and quickly began functioning as a team to prepare a federal grant on higher education. Over time, the team identified additional intellectual endeavors to shape the future of honors education. Each professional shares unique skills in service of the larger goals. Leadership for various initiatives transitions to those with relevant expertise and passion and is often shared among multiple people. Sustained collaborations are now recognized as a Collaborative. Members of the Collaborative trust that they are <em>simul fortior</em>--better together--in this high-functioning and reciprocally beneficial working relationship and outline the benefits others may realize in forming similar honors collaboratives.&nbsp;</p> Rebecca Bott-Knutson Joy Hart Heidi Appel Jonathan Kotinek Paul Knox William Ziegler Dan Roberts Andrea Radasanu Timothy Nichols Leigh Fine Copyright (c) 2023 Rebecca Bott-Knutson, Joy Hart, Heidi Appel, Jonathan Kotinek, Paul Knox, William Ziegler, Dan Roberts, Andrea Radasanu, Timothy Nichols, Leigh Fine http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2023-12-14 2023-12-14 6 2 10.31378/jehc.187
