Welcome to ACHE West


‚ÄčThe Association for Continuing Higher Education (ACHE) West Region is a region with ACHE. We are continuing higher education professionals who represent a large portion of the Western United States, Canada, Asia, and Mexico.

ACHE West is the premier provider of professional development for continuing higher education professionals.

Comprised of experts in the field, our membership prides itself upon connecting theory to practice, fostering an environment that supports sharing and learning, and focusing on the training, development and advocacy needs of the West Region.

ACHE West believes continuing higher education has a responsibility to meet the access and needs of our communities. We strive to understand and embrace the history and culture of our communities, and how this impacts experiences, approaches and access to education. We pledge to create a culture of belonging and community that values, recognizes, and honors differences so everyone feels welcome and empowered to be their authentic self.
