The Alliance

The Alliance for Equity in Higher Education, a program managed by IHEP, was established in 1999 by the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC), the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU), and the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO) to represent the shared interests of American Indian Tribal Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and Historically and Predominantly Black Colleges and Universities. Together, AIHEC, HACU and NAFEO represent more than 350 minority-serving institutions (MSIs) that educate more than one-third of the nation’s students of color. In addition to providing quality higher education opportunities, our institutions are well known for their unique ability to foster cultural values and traditions, promote civic and community responsibility, and produce citizens who are exceptionally attuned to the increasingly diverse country in which we live. The Alliance unites our diverse communities and institutions to enhance the nation’s economic competitiveness, social stability, and cultural richness.
