CHEC Forms Cooperative Relationships for Professional Development


Dundas, Ont. -- In order to better serve leaders on CHEC campuses, CHEC has signed cooperative agreements with two Christian professional groups: ABACC (Association of Business Administrators at Christian Colleges); and CACSD (Canadian Association of Christians in Student Development). We are also in discussion with NACCAP (North American Council of Christian Admissions Personnel) for this same purpose. CHEC is also working to form professional networks for academic deans and campus leaders in advancement, enrolment and marketing.

CHEC also maintains a close working relationship with the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, and its Centre for Research on Canadian Evangelicalism, and with ABHE, the Association for Biblical Higher Education, which recently appointed CHEC's Executive Director, Dr Justin Cooper, as an ex officio member of its board.
