Message from the Director

With over 10,000 members in our LinkedIn discussion forum, HETL has grown to be a widely diverse group of educators. Our discussion forum represents educators from over 130 countries and from every academic discipline, function, and level in higher education.

So, not only is HETL diverse in its racial, ethnic, and gender make-up but it is also diverse along many other factors also, including nationality, linguistics, institutional mission, academic discipline, educational philosophy, and other characteristics.

We believe in inclusivity and pluralism. HETL members consist not only of faculty, researchers, and scholars but also higher education executives, managers, and administrators, as well as higher education librarians, counselors, technologists, publishers, editors, and authors. Diversity is strength and a benefit and is all the more important in a globalized world.

Help us build an even more diverse network of educators – invite your colleagues to become a part of the HETL network.

Regards,
Patrick Blessinger,
HETL Executive Director
