Convening

MHEC CONVENING empowers the member states of the Compact to connect for the purpose of exchanging expertise, sharing ideas and experiences, and collaboratively pursuing efforts that help further higher education. This convening builds cooperation around important and emerging issues in higher education and leads to many initiatives and activities that produce a variety of outcomes and results ranging from the dissemination of knowledge and expertise about practical solutions, to leveraging the collective purchasing power of the region to achieve efficiencies and savings. MHEC covers the cost of these meetings, including the travel expenses of participating members, so states and institutions do not have to use travel funds to participate.
