    History

    The Coordinating Council for Higher Education (CCHE) was created to review various aspects of higher education in California. It was composed of representatives of the University of California, the California State College system, the public junior colleges, private college and universities, and the general public. CCHE was established as an advisory body. Principle functions of the Council included review of the annual budget and capital outlay requests of the University and State College system; delineation of the different functions of higher education and counsel as to programs appropriate to each segment; and development of plans for growth and recommendations on the need for and location of new facilities and programs. In 1973 the functions and duties of CCHE were transferred to the California Postsecondary Education Commission although CCHE continued in existence until March 30, 1974.
