Southwestern Ohio Council for Higher Education (SOCHE) was formed in 1967. SOCHE is a regional consortium of colleges, universities, and businesses advancing higher education through academic collaboration, corporate and community partnerships, and student success.


In January 1967, ten presidents of institutions in the Dayton/Miami Valley area met to discuss collaborative efforts in education and research. Those institutions involved became the founding members of the Dayton-Miami Valley Consortium.In March 1967, the presidents received a federal grant of $50,000 to develop the Consortium. In November 1967, the Dayton-Miami Valley Consortium was officially incorporated by the State of Ohio.In 1984, the Board of Trustees officially changed the name from Dayton-Miami Valley Consortium to the Southwestern Ohio Council for Higher Education. The motivation for this change was the intention to invite members to join the Consortium from a wider region. SOCHE is a consortium of twenty-one colleges and universities to date.
