As the new president of this venerable organization, I decided the best way I could fully understand the challenges and unique strengths of the schools we serve was to go out and see the institutions for myself, talk to their leaders, and even visit with some of their students. It’s a chance for me to learn about the extraordinary work going on at colleges and universities across New England and with our international institutions during these extraordinary times when we are all so deeply impacted by the pandemic. It’s also an opportunity to reach out to our members and share some of my early thoughts about where accreditation is going. And quite frankly, after months of working remotely (our tirelessly devoted staff is now working two days a week in the office for the foreseeable future), I’m eager to develop the helpful, supportive personal relationships that have always characterized the NECHE organization. In addition to this blog, I will also be doing a podcast of my interviews so you can access those as well.
Thanks for joining us on our journey. I hope you enjoy the trip!
It’s a movement!
NECHE on the Road is the brainchild of its new president, Lawrence Schall, as a pathway to forge close personal and professional relationships with leaders in the higher education community that NECHE serves. There will also be a podcast of Larry’s interviews with the institutional leaders linked to each post. Buckle up and come along!
