About Us

We research the governance of higher education

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, both on macro (system) and meso (institutional) levels.

The understanding is expected to improve primarily through in-depth, theory-based investigations of aspects of governance, but also through focusing on practical aspects and improving policy and institutional practice. CHEGG seeks both to strengthen the idea of higher education as a distinct field of study and 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.
