The Association of Adventist Colleges and Universities (AACU) exists to improve Adventist higher education and to help make the benefits known to students seeking a degree at a faith-based institution. Below you’ll learn more about AACU and the benefits it offers for students.
In 2001 and 2002, the presidents of the accredited Adventist colleges and universities in North America faced a pivotal choice to raise the bar in Adventist education. With much thought and prayer, they replaced competition with the spirit of collaboration through the creation of the Association of Adventist Colleges and Universities (AACU).
Each of the 13 colleges and universities continues its independent leadership and most recruitment efforts. The key focus of AACU is drawing the colleges together to improve Adventist higher education and to reach more students with the benefits of its holistic approach.
