The International Council for Higher Education (ICHE) was officially established in 1997 in Switzerland by concerned educators joined together on vital issues facing Christian higher education across the world. Since its founding, ICHE has addressed these wide ranging educational concerns by networking and partnering with educators, specialist agencies, and institutions worldwide. Through these relationships, established colleges and universities have been able to make significant contributions to institutions in the developing world through strategic service and program partnerships.

The International Council for Higher Education is a global body pursuing excellence in academic programs and promoting sustainable and integrated model of higher education, particularly in countries where educational opportunities are restricted or are in need of development for nation building.
