The American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) will lead a national effort that has the potential for transforming Native student success and completion at 35 accredited tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) over the next five years. As part of a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation initiative which seeks to close disparities in student outcomes by catalyzing commitments, prioritizing components and approaches, and supporting institutions through communities of practice, AIHEC will join five other higher education nonprofit organizations as “intermediaries for scale” (IfS). A key aspect of the new initiative for AIHEC will be to adapt, deploy, and continuously improve solutions and capacities at TCUs that have demonstrated success in helping some institutions transform student outcomes.
