Mission, Vision and Beliefs Statements
As part of multiple efforts to continually improve its programs and services, the AIU embarked on a strategic planning process in March 2010. During this process, the AIU defined its mission and vision statements, as well as its strategic plan. Feedback committees of internal and external stakeholders were engaged through electronic surveys, focus groups, individual interviews and development teams.
We maximize educational opportunities for all learners by responding to the needs of our community with leading-edge, high-quality, cost-effective programs and services.
Educational excellence is a hallmark of our region with all learners having access to the best services, enriching their lives and enabling their contribution to a vibrant economy.
We leverage the collective expertise and experience of our partners, encourage active participation from all constituents, and strive for inclusiveness in our programs and services.
We believe that demanding anything less than excellence, internally and externally, is sacrificing the potential that all learners possess, regardless of situation or circumstance.
We strive for character, competence, integrity, professionalism, and transparency in all that we do as they are necessary for building an effective education community.
We cultivate an entrepreneurial environment that fosters creativity as this is vital to conquering the dynamic complexities of an ever-changing world.
We are driven by the needs of educators and learners in our development and delivery of programs and services.
We model a culture of excellence, inspiring effective leaders to create effective teachers and successful students.
We ensure programs and services are valuable, affordable, and of superior quality.
Continuous Quality Improvement
We are dedicated to ongoing, evidence-based improvement and challenging the status quo in order to advance education and provide rich and relevant opportunities for educators and learners.
AIU Strategic Plan
The strategic plan was approved by the AIU board in early 2011 and is currently being implemented and fulfilled.
