Creating CHEA: Building a New National Organization on Accrediting.
Bloland, Harland G.
Journal of Higher Education, v70 n4 p357-88 Jul-Aug 1999
Describes the process by which the higher education community, working through national higher education association presidents, regional accreditation commission directors, and college/university presidents, created the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), a new national organization on accrediting. The process illustrates the precariousness and uncertainty of creating an organization in higher education's rapidly changing political, social, and technical environment. (Author/MSE)
