Randy Nelson, dean of Pixar University, knocked it out of the park when he defined the difference between collaboration and cooperation. They are not the same.

Pixar University is mentioned under the description of the Creative Team on Pixar’s corporate overview:
In order to attract and retain quality animators, the company founded Pixar University, which conducts three-month long courses for new and existing animators.
