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.
