ACHE is a dynamic network of diverse professionals who are dedicated to promoting excellence in continuing higher education and to sharing their expertise and experience with one another.
Begun as the Association of University Evening Colleges (AUEC) in 1939 and transitioning to the Association for Continuing Higher Education in 1973, ACHE has become an organization dedicated to serving the entire spectrum of continuing higher education.
As AUEC, the association's mission focused on professional development, colleagueship, and personal service for administrators and faculty in evening colleges.
Belief in the values of professional development, collegiality, and service continues to guide the mission of the Association for Continuing Higher Education.
ACHE South is one of the eight regions within the ACHE Association and conducts one or more meetings each year.
ACHE South is comprised of the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Caribbean, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico.
