Regional Groups of ECEDHA

ECEDHA's regional groups are very important to the overall strength of the organization and to each of its member universities. The regions convene independently throughout the year to focus on state and local funding, technology stimulus and development, regional economic initiatives, and other issues pertinent to their region. Members are encouraged to participate at both a national and regional level.
