Council on Higher Education, Louisville, KY.
The Council on Higher Education (CHE) is an independent statutory body established by South Africa's Higher Education Act of 1997. Its mandate is to advise the Minister of Education on all matters related to higher education so that the system is characterized by equity, quality, responsiveness, and effective and efficient provision and management. In the period from November 2001 to October 2002, the CHE has conducted a range of activities related to the advisory and general higher education development mandate of the CHE and has taken important steps toward building a national quality assurance system for higher education. The report also details the activities of the Higher Education Quality Committee, a permanent committee of the CHE. The report concludes with 23 recommendations designed to improve higher education in South Africa. Many of these involve strengthening the role of the CHE and improving the ways members are selected.
