Committees

MHEC brings together committees of practitioners and subject-matter experts to share knowledge and expertise on issues facing higher education while brainstorming on ways to collaboratively address these issues. MHEC relies upon these committees to continually improve and evaluate the initiatives and activities while enabling them to problem solve with similarly situated thought leaders in their field.
