Our distinctive research and policy studies are focused on advancing higher education.
We provide policy analysis and research to education leaders, policymakers, and researchers to strengthen connections between segments of the enterprise in an effort to increase and reclaim college access for all.
We help college and university leaders, researchers, and policymakers recast their thinking to formulate creative, enterprising ideas about how to reverse current trends and restore college affordability.
We identify ways for today’s higher education enterprise to meet employer expectations and societal needs—while fostering a sense of common concern for the world’s most pressing issues. Reframing engagement matters.
We apply collaborative research and policy to improve the ever-evolving quality of the education experience for faculty, staff, students, and the communities in which we live and work.
The Ohio State University’s Center for Higher Education Enterprise (CHEE) strives to make change.
