Creating Campus Communities Where All Students Thrive

Upcoming Events

Occidental College will be hosting our 2024 annual end-of-year conference for staff and faculty representatives, June 26-28. More information will be available in late April — stay tuned!

Founded in 2000, as the oldest consortium of liberal arts colleges and universities in the US with a specific focus on student of color achievement, the Consortium on High Achievement and Success (CHAS) envisions a higher education landscape where institutions create and sustain the conditions for students of color to reach the highest levels of intellectual achievement, personal growth, and professional development.

Over the years, our scope has expanded — evolving into a platform for peer learning, networking, and professional development opportunities, aimed at advancing strategies to better support and retain students, faculty and staff of color at member institutions. CHAS member institutions are committed to cultivating environments that support the thriving of every member of our campus communities.

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.
