The St Andrews Centre for Higher Education Research currently consists of staff across 17 Schools and six central University units. The Centre aims to facilitate cross-departmental collaboration in higher education research. CHER brings together staff interested in conducting evidence-based higher education research to inform local, national and international policy and practice, and to promote a reflective, analytical view of Higher Education activities.
