About WCET

WCET is the leader in the practice, policy, & advocacy of digital learning in higher education. WCET is a member-driven organization which brings together colleges, universities, higher education organizations, and companies to collectively improve the quality and reach of technology-enhanced learning programs.

Over 30 Years of Responsive Excellence

WCET has a long and successful history in fostering collaborative projects, information sharing, and networking among some of the country's most established and innovative postsecondary institutions. WCET was founded by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) to meet a growing need to integrate distance learning and educational technology into the academic services of higher education institutions in the western region. From our western roots, the work of WCET has grown to serve members across the U.S. and Canada. We invite you to learn more about membership and consider joining.

WICHE is one of four regional U.S. interstate compacts, with a diverse portfolio of programs and priorities that help students pursue higher education affordably and conveniently, accelerate region-wide sharing of ideas and resources, provide expert research and policy guidance, and prepare universities, colleges, and communities for social, economic and technological change.
