Mission Statement

The American Association of Blacks in Higher Education (AABHE) pursues the educational and professional needs of Blacks in higher education with a focus on leadership, access and vital issues impacting students, faculty, staff, and administrators. AABHE also facilitates and provides opportunities for collaborating and networking among individuals, institutions, groups and agencies in higher education in the United States and Internationally.

Description

The American Association of Blacks in Higher Education (AABHE) is an outgrowth of the Black Caucus, which was a component of the former American Association of Higher Education (AAHE). As such, AABHE has rich history of representing blacks in higher education on a national level. The Black Caucus created the Summit for Blacks in Higher Education.

Over the years, AABHE has been involved in numerous initiatives such as addressing the pipeline of Black faculty and staff in higher education, bringing issues pertinent to Black faculty and staff to the attention of the larger academic community and recognizing African American achievements and accomplishments to higher education.

AABHE will continue to be the voice for Blacks in higher education. While AABHE evolved from the AAHE Black Caucus, the direction has not changed course. AABHE is an individual and institutional member-based organization with sponsorships from colleges and universities throughout the country. It is also sponsored by corporations that support the mission and vision of AABHE.
