What's New See All

In a new statement, AAC&U and the TRHT Campus Center at Hamline University call on higher education to play a leadership role in addressing racism and white supremacy, the issues at the center of protests across the country and around the world demanding justice for George Floyd.
AAC&U is now accepting proposals for the 2021 annual meeting, which will be held January 20–23 in Seattle. Titled “Revolutionizing Higher Education after COVID-19,” the meeting will bring together campus leaders at all levels and from institutions of all types to explore what undergraduate education will look like in a post-pandemic future. Proposals are due July 20.
AAC&U joined the American Council on Education (ACE) and more than eighty other higher education organizations in asking the Senate for additional support for higher education institutions beyond the $14 billion included in the CARES Act. In April, a group of higher education organizations including ACE and AAC&U had requested $46.6 billion in aid for higher education. “As we look to summer and the 2020–21 school year, we expect even greater losses,” the associations write.
