Aligning Resource Development Strategies
The focus of Activity Two is on implementing structural changes to coordinate and integrate the college’s multiple
resource development components. This involves all resources – money, facilities,
people, goods, and services. A comprehensive Total Resource Development strategy will
heighten the college’s visibility and build bridges between the college, K-12, the
community, donors, business/industry, and government. It will not only develop resources
to reduce barriers to students’ success, it will also increase the institution’s resource
development capacity for the long run.
Summary of Goals for Activity Two
The AIM Fund has been established at the AHC Foundation to support the needs of basic
skills and ESL noncredit students transferring to credit courses. Many of these students
are ineligible for financial aid, scholarships, and other forms of financial assistance
and are considered out-of-state residents. It costs a student $2,376 in out-of-state
tuition alone to complete 12 units in a semester, or nearly five times the cost of
in-state tuition. A committee will review applications in November and May each year.
The maximum award amount is $1,000 per student each semester with a total award maximum
of $2,000 per student for all semesters at AHC.
