About AHEE

Who We Are
The Association for Higher Education Effectiveness is a network of higher education professionals who lead or staff offices that intentionally integrate multiple functions (strategic planning, institutional research, assessment, accreditation, program review) to promote and support evidence-based planning and improvement.

AHEE’s Definition of Integrated Institutional Effectiveness (IIE)
IIE is the purposeful coordination and integration of functions that support institutional performance, quality, and efficiency; those functions include strategic planning, outcomes assessment, institutional research, regional/specialized accreditation, and program/unit review.

AHEE’s Vision for IIE in Higher Education
Higher education institutions rely on integrated offices led by well-prepared, qualified Cabinet level professionals who assure evidence-based planning, decision making and improvement as a means of achieving institutions’ effectiveness. These professionals are knowledgeable of global problems and solutions regarding higher education effectiveness and are routinely called upon to participate in higher education policy.

AHEE – Organizational Vision
AHEE will be widely recognized as the premier association dedicated to providing advocacy, professional development and networking opportunities for leaders in integrated institutional effectiveness. The Association will provide ongoing support to institutional personnel in leveraging evidence for improvement.  It will have a robust infrastructure that supports a variety of development opportunities for the profession. AHEE will have continually strengthening relationships with higher education institutions and organizations.

AHEE – Organizational Mission
Our mission is to support and develop leadership that educates, advocates, advises, facilitates, and improves higher education’s capacity to use evidence in decisions, policy, planning, and change for the purpose of improving postsecondary education.
