The 2020 California Higher Education Collaborative (CHEC) Conference will be held September 29 – October 1, 2020, in Indian Wells, CA. This year’s theme is “New Opportunities – Common Challenges.”
This annual conference convenes administrative leaders and professionals from the three segments of California public higher education – UC, Cal State University (CSU), and the California Community Colleges (CCC) – to encourage the exchange of ideas and practices that can improve administrative performance, service, and outcomes.
