Coalitions provide a multi-disciplinary,
topic-oriented organizational mechanism with broad geographic
representation for continuing education; advocacy; knowledge; standards;
and professional development. They enhance channels of communication
among members with different professional backgrounds to address common
issues in college health and expand membership participation
opportunities in the association. Coalitions serve as an information and
consultative resource for ACHA members and other communities of
interest, and help create informational and educational resources,
guidelines, and/or best practices. They are available to advise the
Board of Directors on relevant policy issues and plan, solicit, or
facilitate programming at ACHA and affiliate annual meetings.
