What is AAC&U?

The mission of the Association of American Colleges and Universities is to make a liberal education and inclusive excellence the foundation for institutional purpose and educational practice in higher education.

Through over 30 years of intense attention to GE, AAC&U GE initiatives continue to be designed to allow every undergraduate student to experience a relevant and rigorous GE curriculum. In addition to working with individual campuses to improve their GE programs, AAC&U aims to strengthen GE for transfer students, ensuring the curricula maintain high expectations and meaningful assessment of learning, and GE is seen as essential for enhancing curricula and pedagogy.
