10.10. ARCHE (Atlanta Regional Council for Higher Education)

The Atlanta region enjoys a concentration of colleges and universities matched by few U.S. metropolitan areas. Their diversity of programs and collective resources make the Atlanta region one of America’s leading centers for higher education.

Nineteen public and private colleges and universities—including Oglethorpe—comprise the membership of the Atlanta Region Council for Higher Education (ARCHE); the membership roster also consists of five affiliated libraries and 12 corporate and nonprofit community partners. ARCHE brings these constituents together to build awareness of the campuses’ collective scope, impact and value and to help them share strengths through cooperative programs. For additional information, please visit www.atlantahighered.org/ (from which all information in this section is taken).

ARCHE works to strengthen public support for higher education, promote economic and community development, and help its members collaborate in ways that leverage their individual strengths. ARCHE offers two important cooperative programs that help its member institutions expand opportunities for students, faculty and staff.
