Invitation to become an associated member of Centre for Higher Education Futures

A new research centre called the Centre for Higher Education Futures (CHEF) has been established at the Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University. Everyone researching into the field of higher education within Aarhus University is hereby invited to become an associated member.

2017.06.14 | Susan Wright and Søren Bengtsen

The Centre for Higher Education Futures (CHEF) will offer vibrant conversations about national and international research on all aspects of higher education and new ways of opening up discussions with national and international policy communities. The centre is organised around three main themes:

  • The role and positioning of universities and higher education in the world.
  • The organisation and inner life of universities.
  • Building higher education futures.

The CHEF is based in Copenhagen at the Danish School of Education (DPU, AU) and works in collaboration with the Centre for Teaching Development and Digital Media (CUDiM, AU) in Aarhus. The centre was officially launched on 13 January 2017 with about 70 members and is now engaged in a programme of talks, seminars and a major conference in Aarhus in November 2017.

The CHEF offers associated members the following services:

  1. A regular newsletter with information about the CHEF’s projects, activities, collaborations and publications.
