The Center for Excellence in Higher Education (CEHE) was established in 2006 by a small group of philanthropists who have donated millions of dollars to U.S. colleges and universities and were concerned about the growing challenges facing higher education in America. Its original purpose was to educate the public about the state of higher education in America and help donors promote excellence in higher education through philanthropy.
From 2007 to 2012, CEHE a 501(c)(3) organization operated as a public charity. It conducted a series of research programs and supported faculty interested in improving higher education at universities around the country and internationally. CEHE also engaged in several important research projects, acting in the background to help philanthropists who wanted to promote structural reform of higher education more generally.
In 2012, I merged my colleges, CollegeAmerica, Stevens-Henager College, and California College San Diego, into a 501(c)(3) education organization, CEHE.
CEHE continues to work to make improvements in delivery methods and content in higher education, but rather than focusing that work simply on advocating for change, CEHE, through its colleges, is actively involved in providing educational opportunities to the thousands of students it now serves.
