Higher Education Personnel
SOCHE provides a variety of resources to support the professional development of higher education personnel. We offer collaborative opportunities via our councils and committees program, plus extensive offerings in the form of virtual and in-person events, conference, and workshops. You also can choose what to learn (and when) via our online webinar library.
Councils & Committees
SOCHE is dedicated to advancing higher education through active collaboration, resource and knowledge building, and effective professional development programs. To accomplish this, SOCHE administers 18 active Councils and Committees. The purpose of a SOCHE Council or Committee is to provide an opportunity for representatives from higher education to be a resource for one another, share information and best practices, identify common challenges, and, ultimately, broaden awareness of the resources, services, and activities in higher education. SOCHE is also dependent upon the Councils and Committees for substantial input on annual professional development programs.
SOCHE EVENTS & training
Each year SOCHE organizes workshops, training, and conferences that provide timely educational resources to collegiate faculty, staff and students. SOCHE events are the result of ideation and collaboration among our councils and committees, as well as partners who contribute to the dialogue on student success.
SOCHE WEBINAR LIBRARY
SOCHE partners with the Boulder-based company, Innovative Educators, to provide our members access to over 500 live and on-demand professional development training courses via our online webinar library. Innovative Educators are experts in providing online training for educators with a wide range of programming available for faculty, administrators, and staff. More so, the live webinars cover the most pressing topics in higher education.
As a result of our partnership, this valuable resource is available at NO COST to SOCHE members. All SOCHE members will have access to SOCHE Webinars upon registration.
