The CHE is mandated to ‘provide relevant, timely and independent advice on matters concerning the condition and development of higher education’ in order to assess the health of the system. In order to fulfil its mandate the CHE focuses on regular monitoring of the higher education sector and analysis of achievements and challenges within the sector. To complement on-going monitoring, the CHE also engages in more in-depth research projects focused on specific areas of concern.
For more information on current activities, refer to the discussion of the specific monitoring projects.
Monitoring information is also used to support the work being undertaken in other directorates.
