CHC has, for over three decades, been a leading and highly valued higher education provider and the preferred choice for many Christian denominations and organisations. CHC is also an International Affiliate of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and hosts their Best Semester student experience program through the Australia Studies Centre.
