Centre for Higher Education Governance Ghent

The Centre for Higher Education Governance Ghent (CHEGG) is a research centre established with the aim to contribute to the scholarly understanding of governance in higher education. CHEGG focuses on macro (system) and meso (institutional) levels to governance, while striving to maintain a dynamic dialogue between the field of higher education and those of (organizational) sociology, political sciences, public administration and business administration.

CHEGG is part of the Department of Sociology at the Faculty for Political and Social Sciences of Ghent University and it was established in 2013.
