Association of American Colleges and Universities


The Association of American Colleges and Universities is the leading national association concerned with the quality, vitality and public standing of undergraduate liberal education.

Founded in 1915 by college presidents, AAC&U now represents the entire spectrum of American colleges and universities: large and small, public and private, two-year and four-year.

There are more than 900 accredited member institutions, drawn in approximately equal percentages from research universities, masters institutions and liberal arts colleges. Twelve percent of the members are two-year campuses.
