Welcome to AFIT

The Alliance for Innovation & Transformation (AFIT) is an association of innovative higher ed CEOs who are committed to transforming their organizations in the face of unprecedented challenges and change. AFIT supports this work by exposing our members to world-class innovators and "next" practices, fostering a collaborative team learning environment, and offering exclusive CEO networking opportunities.

Our mission would not be possible without our sponsors
