Mission (purpose, niche) Christian Adult Higher Education Association (CAHEA), founded in 1994, began with a group of adult degree program administrators from Christian colleges to discuss issues and problems unique to Christian non-traditional higher education programs. The mission of CAHEA is to advance the cause of Christ by promoting, supporting, and nurturing alternative delivery methods for offering distinctively Christian post-secondary education designed for adult learners.

The CAHEA goals are to:

  • Promote increased awareness of issues, standards of good practice, trends, models, research, and techniques relevant to Christian adult higher education among professionals in the field.
  • Foster networking of professionals in the field of Christian adult higher education.
  • Collect data, supply information, and serve as a point of reference for members and the wider higher education community.
