AHEE President’s Welcome

Welcome to the 2022-23 AHEE year!

I am honored to step into the role of the President of the Board of Directors of the Association for Higher Education Effectiveness (AHEE), and I hope you will join me in the year ahead, as we strive to make the AHEE the strongest advocate for our disciplines and our professions.  I am equally humbled to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Jerald Henderson and the extraordinary individuals who have served on the board since its inception in 2013.

We owe a debt of gratitude to the 2021-22 Board of Directors for their dedication, service and leadership over the past year.  Our current slate of Directors are accomplished professionals from across higher education and related sectors.  Please take a moment to visit our website to get to know us better

As many of you know, AHEE is a network of higher education professionals who promote and support evidence-informed planning for institutional and student success. At AHEE, we partner with organizations that focus individually on institutional planning, institutional research, assessment, or accreditation and bring together these multiple functions under the umbrella of institutional effectiveness.

It is a very exciting time to be part of AHEE as we are focusing on the strategic direction of the association through:

  • Developing partnerships across other organizations, such as the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)
  • Recruiting additional Board members
  • Reimagining engagement and membership opportunities
  • Developing resources, services, and training for professionals

I invite you to join our listserv or re-engage with AHEE; more information on opportunities will be forthcoming.  We want YOUR input as we embark on these exciting and challenging initiatives in the upcoming year.

Thank you for your part in helping to develop the AHEE vision, and I can’t wait to see what we will achieve together in the next year.

Michael D. Bourgeois, Ph.D.
