New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE)

Based in Boston, the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) is an interstate (regional) compact that was founded in 1955, by six New England governors. NEBHE was approved by New England’s six state legislatures and authorized by the U.S. Congress. NEBHE serves the six New England states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. NEBHE seeks to support innovation, engage conversation, and drive change by working with New England’s higher education stakeholders in public and private education, government and business.

NEBHE’s four policy priorities drive action across the region:

  1. Adult Learners — Enhance and expand postsecondary opportunities for adult learners through increased access, affordability, and targeted programs to promote successful completion
  2. PreK-16+ Alignment and College and Career Readiness — Advance PreK-16+ alignment to promote college and career readiness and the successful transition from PreK-12 to postsecondary opportunities and success
  3. Cost-Saving Collaboration — Develop new models for cost-saving collaboration to help institutions change business practices, lower operating costs, and contain student tuition and fees
  4. Public Value of Higher Education in New England — Promote the public value of postsecondary education to New England and its residents through expanded advocacy and outreach to key stakeholders.
