Innovation begins with ideas, trial and error, and new functions and processes. Your contributions to this development model will shape how we grow as a community her at AEFIS Academy.

Features & Roadmap

Launch of Academy 1.0

In May, when our colleagues at AALHE looked to us for support as they quickly transitioned their in-person conference online, we accelerated our vision of a community service site we planned in response to COVID-19. Following rapid development during May, AEFIS Academy 1.0 was born in time for the AALHE Annual Conference On-Line.
