DHE: Office of Trustee Relations

The Massachusetts Department of Higher Education (DHE) is the staff to the 13-member Board of Higher Education (BHE), responsible for executing the Board's policies and day-to-day operations.

The Board of Higher Education is the statutorily created agency in Massachusetts responsible for defining the mission of and coordinating the Commonwealth’s system of public higher education and its institutions. The Board of Higher Education works to create and maintain a system of public higher education which provides Massachusetts citizens with the opportunity to participate in academic and educational programs for their personal betterment and growth, to contribute to the area’s existing base of research and knowledge, and to contribute to the Commonwealth’s future economic growth and development.

Much of the work of the DHE, working in collaboration with all campuses of the Massachusetts Public Higher Education System, is centered on the Vision Project, an ambitious strategic plan to achieve national leadership among state systems of higher education in key educational and research outcomes.
