AAC&U Sponsorships

AAC&U's sponsorship program provides organizations, nonprofits, companies, publishers, and others the opportunity to share, highlight, and promote their services and/or products with members of a higher education audience.

WHY AAC&U?
AAC&U is the premier association dedicated to improving the quality of undergraduate student learning.  College and university presidents and chancellors, senior academic administrators, faculty members, foundation leaders, and other important educational affairs and student affairs professionals participate in AAC&U in many different ways to explore new trends and opportunities to advance and extend the quality and breadth of undergraduate learning.

AAC&U is the only major national association focused on higher education teaching and learning that spans all Carnegie classifications—research institutions, small liberal arts colleges, community colleges, comprehensive public institutions, religiously-affiliated institutions, HBCUs, HSIs, and many affiliated organizations, both national and international.

Meetings and Conferences
AAC&U's Annual Meeting draws an audience of approximately 2,000 participants. Approximately 75%-80% are academic administrators (deans, chief academic officers, department chairs, presidents, and others); and 20-25% are faculty members and higher education professionals.

AAC&U’s Network for Academic Renewal—which offers four conferences per year, two in the autumn and two in the winter/spring—draws approximately 400-1,000 individuals per conference. The General Education and Assessment conference is the largest, with 750-1,000 participants in recent years.
