The Centre for Higher Education Research, Policy and Practice (CHERPP) is an international collaborative project hosted by the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), Durham College, and the Technological University for Dublin Alliance (TU4D). The TU4D Alliance is a group of three Irish higher education institutions, the Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown, the Institute of Technology, Tallaght, and the Dublin Institute of Technology, that are going through the process of merging to form a Technological University. A Memorandum of Understanding to establish CHERPP was signed by all five institutions on November 2, 2016. Association with CHERPP is open to all researchers and practitioners in higher education.
CHERPP facilitates the Higher Education in Transformation Symposia (HEIT). The first HEIT was held in Dublin in March 2015, while HEIT 2016 was held in Oshawa in November 2016. A third HEIT symposium is being held in Dublin in November 2018 concurrently with the European Conference on Universal Design. The fourth HEIT symposium is planned to return to Canada in November 2020.
