DET/CHE is a dynamic organization committed to providing professional growth for its membership. Since its organization in 1985, DET/CHE has emerged as a major force in bringing together various sectors of higher education from both public and private colleges and universities.

The network created among Directors of Educational Technology is an invaluable resource for sharing ideas and advancing the fields of instructional technology, multimedia, online learning, and other forms of education that apply leading-edge technologies and pedagogies.


DET/CHE was founded in 1985 by media directors who felt a need to discuss shared work interests and problems which were not being addressed by the current professional media organizations. Today, DET/CHE is comprised of a membership cutting across all segments of California higher education - Private Colleges and Universities, the University of California, California State University and California Community Colleges.

The association of the Directors of Educational Technology provides a unique forum for focusing on common management concerns within media services across all levels of higher education.


  • To provide an organization and identity for managers of campus-wide educational technology services. 
  • To provide for an exchange among members of ideas and information relating to educational technology.
  • To provide professional growth among members.
