NCHE represents higher educators within the NEA. Its purpose is to make NEA higher education voices heard in a big, powerful, important organization in which we are a smaller but critical element of the broader membership. NCHE advocates for higher education services and programs that connects with NEA’s mission and vision within our national organization.

NCHE Elections, Endorsements, and Credentials Committee Chair Alec Thomson announced the following NCHE election results for 2020*:

  • Marcia Mackey, Secretary
  • Nandi Riley, Treasurer
  • Andy Sako, Membership Chair
  • Suzanne Sublette, 3-year At-Large
  • Philippe Abraham, 2-year At-Large
  • Deborah Williams, 2-year At-Large
  • Vivian Zimmerman, 2-year At-Large Contingent Faculty

*As noted after the NCHE balloting this summer, no contingent faculty member was elected to the NCHE Executive Committee, nor was any such member currently on the committee.  To ensure effective representation of this essential part of our membership, the NCHE Constitution requires that, if a contingent faculty member is not elected, an additional seat shall be added to the Executive Committee and another election shall be held to fill that seat.  One nomination was received and therefore, by acclamation, NCHE was happy to welcome Vivian Zimmerman back to the NCHE Executive Committee in this critical capacity.
