CHE Centre for Higher Education

The not-for-profit CHE Centre for Higher Education was founded in 1994 on the initiative of Reinhard Mohn and Professor Dr. Hans-Uwe Erichsen, former president of the German Rectors' Conference. Since then the CHE shareholders have been the Bertelsmann Foundation and the German Rectors' Conference Foundation. Long-standing managing director Professor Dr. Detlef Müller-Böling handed over management of the CHE to Dr. Jörg Dräger and Professor Dr. Frank Ziegele in August 2008.

The CHE decides about its areas of specialisation and projects independently and without instruction. It has a total annual budget of around 4.5 million euros, one third of which is financed by the Bertelsmann Foundation.

CHE is committed to achieving a highly effective higher education system that is fair for all. In view of the unstoppable tendency of higher education being normality, CHE is particularly dedicated to ensuring that higher education institutions are in a position to cope with the growing student population as well as with the increasing diversity of their students. Higher education and research institutions should use and shape their autonomy, develop and implement diverse profiles, and assume their social responsibility.
