Midwestern University President and Chief Executive Officer Kathleen H. Goeppinger, Ph.D., was recently appointed as a commissioner for the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE), a Federal interstate compact of 16 Western states and territories that work collaboratively to expand educational access and excellence for all citizens of the West.
Appointed to four-year terms by the governors of their respective states, commissioners serve on a 48-member commission that provides strategic direction for WICHE and oversees its robust and diverse portfolio of higher education programs, research, and policy work.
About WICHE: Established by Congress in 1953, WICHE is one of four U.S. higher education regional compacts. WICHE's programs and efforts help students pursue higher education affordably and conveniently, accelerate regionwide sharing of ideas and resources, provide expert research and policy guidance, and help higher education stakeholders thrive amidst rapid change. WICHE is funded by its members-who reap strong returns on investment from WICHE programs-and by grantmakers and others who share our desire to overcome the education and workforce challenges of tomorrow.
