AIU Mission, Vision, Strategic Plan

  • At the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, the AIU’s Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team determined that a new strategic plan was needed to continue the organization’s growth and its tradition of providing premier educational services. The administration developed an internal facilitation process and identified key stakeholder groups that would collaborate to create a comprehensive plan.

    In early 2021, the AIU invited 1,980 internal and external stakeholders to provide feedback on several key strategic concepts embedded within the plan. This feedback was incorporated into new mission, vision and belief statements. The committee also developed strategic goals and objectives which will guide the organization’s activities over the next five years.

    Our Mission

    We are an educational community that advocates and advances equitable opportunities for every learner.

    Our Vision

    Through equitable access, all learners achieve their full potential.

    Strategic Plan

    The final strategic plan was approved by the AIU’s Board of Directors on June 28, 2021 and has become an important foundational document for the agency. The plan provides a transparent overview of where the organization is going as well as direction for board members, employees and external stakeholders. 

    For your convenience, the AIU created two versions of the document:
