Background & Leadership

ICLHE's origins date back to the margins of conferences in the 1990s. Discussions at these conferences led to a series of symposia culminating in a major ICLHE conference in Maastricht (Netherlands) in 2003. This conference was followed by a second one in 2006 which led to the establishment of a loose community for people with an interest in integrating content and language in higher education.

Today, we're a fully registered association that provides a platform for the exchange of opinions, initiatives and research concerning the interface between content and language in higher education

Meet the Board 2022-2024

Voting for new board members takes place at each ICLHE conference.
