AABHE is an outgrowth of the Black Caucus, which was a component of the former American Association of Higher Education (AAHE).

Over the years, AABHE has been involved in numerous initiatives such as addressing the pipeline of Black faculty and staff in higher education, bringing issues pertinent to Black faculty and staff to the attention of the larger academic community and recognizing African American achievements and accomplishments to higher education.
