The Washington Higher Education Policy Center [WHEPC] is a non-profit [IRS 501c (3)] research organization based in Olympia, Washington. The WHEPC was established in 1996 to study higher education issues in Washington from the perspective of an independent entity, i.e., an organization not directly associated with the higher education institutions or the government.

Its purposes are based on a presumption that while the broad goals of public higher education, including who should be served and how it should be organized, financed, and evaluated, are necessarily political and economic matters, they also are public issues. Responses to such issues should involve public judgment rather than opinion, and this requires information and understanding.

A privately maintained and operated non-profit policy center in this case, the Washington Higher Education Policy Center, free of direct governmental and political control and independent of institutional interests, can serve as a third party to help frame the issues and involve the leaders and citizens of the state in searches for lasting solutions. Thus, the WHEPC exists to help stimulate, inform, and objectively define issues, options, and alternatives.

Its research services are also available on a cost recovery basis for parties who seek reliable data, insightful interpretation, and objective analysis. Accompanying its interest in the basic issues of public concern--higher education access, equity, cost, effectiveness, and responsiveness are WHEPC concentrations in strategic planning, need analysis, role and mission clarification and realignment, student financial assistance, and program and policy evaluation.

In addition to its IRS recognition as a non-profit organization, the WHEPC is chartered as a Washington state nonprofit corporation with the Secretary of State. William Chance serves as the Executive Director.
