Advancing Tribal Students and Sovereign Nations: AIHEC's Vision for the Tribal College Movement
Billy, Carrie; Goetz, Meg
Tribal College Journal of American Indian Higher Education, v28 n2 Win 2016
Through advocacy, research, and program initiatives, the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) provides leadership and influences public policy on tribal higher education and other issues that affect tribal colleges and universities (TCUs). Why do they pursue this work? AIHEC's vision statement makes it clear: to "strengthen sovereign nations through excellence in TRIBAL higher education." During their recent summer meeting, AIHEC's board of directors adopted a five-year, five-point plan that will serve as a guiding document as they continue to advocate on behalf of TCUs, their students, and their communities. The five points that come alive in the plan are: sustaining, educating, innovating, engaging, and honoring.
