MHEC research is meant to inform institutional and state efforts in improving postsecondary policies, practices, and outcomes. Through its efforts MHEC seeks to provide policy guidance, showcase best practices, and convene thought leaders on important higher education issues facing MHEC member states and the region. To help its efforts, MHEC has established a higher education research review panel for state policy and performance evaluation to help guide it in its policy research work.
MHEC produces timely briefs, reports, and technical papers that assist in the evaluation of postsecondary performance, the analysis of state policies, and the identification of effective institutional practices. The intended audience for MHEC’s research includes commissioners, state legislators and agency staff, institutional and system leaders, and the broader community of higher education researchers.
