AIHEC, established and governed by the nation’s Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), provides support and advocacy services to its membership—particularly in partnership with federal agencies and national organizations and programs—to provide the programmatic needs of TCUs.
The AIHEC AIMS project was initiated in 2004 by the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC). The major goal of the AIHEC AIMS project is to define relevant quantitative and qualitative indicator data for American Indian success as determined by the Tribal Colleges, and to develop and implement a strategy for collecting, analyzing, and presenting annually the success indicators.
AIHEC has implemented several project related collaboration sites using the Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server system. These sites provide a secure respository for the storage, development and distribution of project related documents, contacts, Internet links, calendars, databases and other related materials. Access to some of these sites is provided for authenticated users only.
