The Center For Higher Education Leadership

The Center for Higher Education Leadership (CHEL) was formed by Terri E. Givens to provide academic leaders with information and a supportive community for improving management and leadership skills in an environment of changing demographics, financial challenges, and advances in educational technology. CHEL was born of Terri’s experiences navigating these fields and learning along her journey through academe, from professor to vice-provost and provost at universities in Texas and California.


Shelley Seale came on-board as co-founder and the director of content, to oversee the newsletters, guides, and other original content from our exceptional team of contributors for the CHEL community.
