WICHE (Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education) is a regional, nonprofit organization. Membership includes the 15 western states and the U.S. Pacific Territories and Freely Associated States. WICHE and its 15 member states work to improve access to higher education and ensure student success. Our student exchange programs, regional initiatives, and our research and policy work allow us to assist constituents throughout the West and beyond.
The number of Ohio high school grads is expected to decline by more than 13,000 by 2032, according to a report released in December by WICHE.
