States and Consortia Initiative

Providing a collaborative bridge

AAC&U’s States and Consortia Initiative unifies institutions regionally and across common goals in advocating for quality, equity, and affordability in higher education. The initiative provides a national platform for its members to highlight best practices, innovate at scale, and share evidence from multi-institutional alignment efforts, including transfer.

Programming is available to all AAC&U states and consortia members, enabling their leaders to collaborate on common and self-defined objectives. Through their membership, organizing agents have opportunities to advance and accelerate transformational policy change as well as educational quality, equity, and assessment. AAC&U supports members by coordinating and facilitating interinstitutional and interstate connections, providing practical assistance, and offering relevant materials for advancing multi-institutional objectives.

In addition, members receive access to various communications platforms and insights directly from AAC&U and other national leadership during monthly meetings designed to accelerate project development and pursue funding opportunities.
