2021 California Higher Education Collaborative Virtual Conference

New Opportunities - Common Challenges

October 6 - 7, 2021
(with pre-conference workshops throughout September)

Leveraging value, innovative approaches, effective communication, and resiliency are just some of the topics being presented at the 2021 California Higher Education Collaborative (CHEC) Virtual Conference being held October 6 - 7, 2021. This conference, with a theme of New Opportunities – Common Challenges, convenes administrative leaders and professionals from the three segments of California public higher education, to encourage the exchange of ideas and practices, which can improve administrative performance, service, and outcomes. 

This year, we are proud to introduce "CHEC Thursdays" where we offer a different pre-conference workshop on four separate Thursday afternoons leading up to the conference week.
