The AHA’s associate director, Dana Schaffer, has recently been invited to serve on the advisory council for National History Day (NHD), a nationwide academic program and contest for secondary school students. Given her work on K-12 initiatives at the AHA, and as a former coordinator for the NHD contest in New Haven, Connecticut, and judge at the national competition, Dana is thrilled to join the advisory council to assist with NHD programming.

This year AHA executive director Jim Grossman joined the board of directors of the Association of American Colleges and Universities, the leading national association focused on the quality, vitality, and public standing of undergraduate liberal education. AAC&U functions as a catalyst and facilitator, forging links among presidents, administrators, and faculty members who are engaged in institutional and curricular planning. Its more than 1,300 member institutions include accredited public and private colleges, community colleges, research universities, and comprehensive universities of every type and size.

Julia Brookins, the AHA’s special projects coordinator, has accepted an invitation from the Institute for Evidence-Based Change (IEBC) to join its Tuning Advisory Board. IEBC is the primary consulting resource for Tuning projects across the country, and the Institute’s staff are eager to draw on Julia’s experience directing the AHA’s Tuning initiative.
