Sponsorship at AAC&U
The Association of American Colleges and Universities connects your company or organization with decision makers and thought leaders across the higher education spectrum.
AAC&U is the premier association for improving the quality of student learning throughout all sectors of higher education with membership comprising a wide variety of institutions (large and small, public and private, two-year and four-year, domestic and international, secular and faith-based, liberal arts and STEM-focused); tribal colleges, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities; and entire state systems.
AAC&U gives you direct access to presidents, chancellors, senior academic officers, faculty, and foundation leaders. AAC&U serves over 65,000 higher education leaders and more than 1,400 member institutions.
AACU’s meetings and conferences are some of the largest annual gatherings of university presidents and institutional leaders in the United States.

In addition to the Annual Meeting, AAC&U hosts a series of leadership institutes, annual conferences, publications, webinars, and additional events across four programmatic areas:
- Diversity, Equity, and Student Success
- Global Engagement
- Transforming STEM Higher Education
- General Education, Assessment, and Workforce Alignment
Some sponsorship levels include the option for promotion at events and in publications in one or more of these programmatic areas.
AAC&U reaches a vast network of academic leaders and faculty members across higher education through publications including highly regarded and respected journals—Peer Review, Liberal Education, and Diversity & Democracy—and the AAC&U News e-newsletter.
AAC&U gives you a wide range of sponsorship and partnership opportunities to increase visibility, raise awareness, and broaden your audience.
All Annual Meeting sponsors will be listed, by sponsorship level, on AAC&U’s website and will be included in the Preliminary Program (mailed to 20,000+), electronic campaign materials (emailed to 65,000+), and Final Programs (distributed to 2,000+).
