The University of Houston-Downtown has been a proud partner with AVID
for Higher Education since 2009.
for Higher Education was designed specifically to meet the needs of students attending a college or university. It partners with institutions of higher education to systemically address the goals of increased learning, persistence, completion and success in and beyond college. AVID assists postsecondary professionals in analyzing existing student support initiatives and data, identifying barriers and needs, and establishing and assessing student learning outcomes. By supporting faculty and administrators in their efforts to increase student engagement, AVID also supports students in their efforts to earn a college degree. When implemented with fidelity, AVID impacts the expectations and behaviors of postsecondary students, faculty, and administrators through thoughtful and ongoing professional development.”
