This essay presents a framework for developing technology‐mediated inter‐institutional relationships for collaborative telelearning. This framework highlights the issues and implications of developing and maintaining partnering relationships among universities. The development of this framework is an outgrowth of two inter‐institutional relationships among three large state universities: between the University of Maryland at College Park and Indiana University, and between the University of Maryland at College Park and the University of Arizona. The essay provides a description of both inter‐institutional relationships, focusing specifically on inception, execution, and ongoing evaluation experiences. These experiences are subsequently used to illustrate how a framework for developing inter‐institutional relationships can be used to both guide the design of new and the assessment of existing relationships. The essay concludes by discussing costs and benefits of inter‐institutional relationships at the individual champion and the institutional levels.
