Focusing on how the AHE Liaison provides leadership, executes the AVID Campus Plan, coordinates the professional development and planning days, and completes research and assessment, this strand provides an understanding of the AHE Essential requirements and creates a professional network for effective implementation. The emphasis will be on articulating the issues confronting student success, what the research says, how institutions might turn the research into campus action plans, and how AHE can support their efforts. Returning institutions will continue to investigate and share the successes and challenges of building capacity, assuring sustainability, and enhancing support from faculty, staff, and administration. Other topics include learning community structures, the AVID cohort and control groups, and the AVID Student Center. A block of time is planned for experienced AHE liaisons to visit other strands and see their team members at work.
