The Consortium on High Achievement and Success (CHAS) is comprised of liberal arts colleges and small universities committed to cultivating environments that support the thriving of every member of our campus communities. Founded in 2000, CHAS is the oldest and largest consortium of selective higher education institutions in this nation with a mission specifically focused on student of color achievement. Over the years, the scope of CHAS has expanded — evolving into a platform for peer learning, networking, and professional development opportunities aimed at advancing strategies to better support students, faculty and staff of color at member institutions.

CHAS is financially supported by member institutions and generously hosted by Trinity College, in Hartford, Connecticut. If your institution is interested in joining CHAS, please contact us.
