Founded in 1915 by college presidents, the Association of American Colleges and Universities is "the leading national association concerned with the quality, vitality and public standing of undergraduate liberal education." The Association currently has over 850 accredited member institutions, which include research universities, masters institutions, and traditional liberal arts colleges. The Association sponsors a multitude of conferences and a number of timely publications, and there is a great deal of material about both to be found on their site. Visitors that may be unfamiliar with the nature of the Association may do well to first examine the About AAC&U section of the site to learn more about its mission, strategic plan, partnerships, and board of directors. The Publications section is also quite valuable, as visitors can read selected articles from two major quarterly publications published by the Association, "Liberal Education" and "Peer Review." Visitors will also want to take a look at the Association's major initiatives, which include Liberal Arts Colleges and Global Learning, Journey Towards Democracy, and Integrative Learning: Opportunities to Connect.
