Alahedo’s History

The Alabama Association of Higher Education Diversity Officers advise its members on issues, policies, and practices that affect diversity at higher education institutions in Alabama. The association proposes initiatives to ensure that higher education institutions in Alabama fairly meet the needs of its underrepresented faculty, staff and students. 

President's Message

The last year has been devoted to implementing the Alehedo’s strategic diversity plan. As we continue to welcome staff from all over the state, we are increasingly committed to ensuring our community is a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment to learn, work and serve. The Year in Review provides a glance at the work our staff performs every day to usher in the ever-changing cultural landscape at colleges and universities across this country. In the fall of 2018, ODEI launched a diversity education curriculum designed to introduce the Alehedo community to concepts centered around cultural awareness, unconscious bias, SafeZone training, bystander intervention and sexual harassment. Thousands of people across the enterprise have completed the courses and we look forward to seeing those numbers increase throughout the coming year. Our reach has also gone beyond the walls universities into the local communities and across the state of Alabama. 


NADOHE serves as the preeminent voice for diversity officers in higher education by supporting our collective
efforts to lead our institutions toward the attainment of the following goals:

  • Produce and disseminate empirical evidence through research to inform diversity initiatives
  • Identify and circulate exemplary practices
  • Provide professional development for current and aspiring diversity officers
  • Inform and influence national and local policies
  • Create and foster networking opportunities
