USDA and American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) Leadership Group

The USDA and AIHEC Leadership Group is comprised of nine USDA Mission Area decision-makers and nine 1994 tribal land-grant college and university president members of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) .  The leadership group meets face-to-face two times yearly to ensure that USDA programs and services are accessible to the 1994 land-grant Institutions.  Further, this group meets to ensure that USDA Mission Area representatives understand the uniqueness of and issues affecting the Nation’s thirty-two Land-Grant Institutions, most of which are tribally-controlled.  The USDA and AIHEC Leadership Group meets face-to-face twice yearly.

This Memorandum of Agreement establishes a cooperative framework between USDA and the AIHEC to conduct programs and activities that will enhance the capability of American Indians/Alaska Natives to attain educational excellence and to contribute positively to the fulfillment of the USDA's mission. To obtain more information about the Memorandum of Agreement or the activities supported by the Memorandum of Agreement, contact the USDA/1994 Tribal Land-Grant Colleges and Universities Program.
