Friends Association for Higher Education

Friends Association for Higher Education is an organization of Quaker colleges and educators who seek to maintain and strengthen the Quaker heritage of Quaker founded colleges and universities, provide support for staff, students, and faculty in those organizations, and encourage Quaker scholarship.

Friends Association for Higher Education (FAHE) issued a request for proposals for papers, panel discussions, and workshops for its June 2020 conference at Earlham College and Earlham School of Religion on the theme of “Peacemaking and the Liberal Arts.” This is also the topic of the next volume in FAHE’s book series on Quakers in the scholarly disciplines.

In September, FAHE welcomed a new associate member institution, Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio.

Also in September, FAHE hosted the Quaker College Fair at Friends Center in Philadelphia, Pa., co‐sponsored with Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. Quaker and other high school students and their families attended a panel discussion with Quaker college faculty and admissions staff, Friends school college counselors, and recent Quaker college alumni, who discussed the college selection and application process. After the panel, attendees visited with representatives from Quaker and historically Quaker colleges.
