The Centre for HIgher Education Research and Practice (CHERP) functions as a facilitating and enabling arm of Learning and Teaching, with its primary role to progress the implementation of aspects of the Learning and Teaching Strategy (2013/14 - 2017/18) in collaboration with other key players within the institution.

Its key aim is to promote a learning experience that is enriching, distinctive, challenging and addresses the needs and aspirations of students and staff at Ulster University.
