Our Partners

AASCU partners intensify the impact of state colleges and universities by contributing to our mission, engaging with our members, and sharing their expertise.

The 2022 Annual AASCU Conference

We advance collective impact through partnerships.

The American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) represents 350 public regional comprehensive colleges, universities, and systems. Offering more than 3 million students each year an affordable, high-quality college education—particularly students from lower-income families, first-generation college students, and/or students of color—AASCU institutions are stewards of their communities, powering economic growth and preparing graduates to be informed and engaged citizens who live by the values of a democratic society. 

AASCU gratefully acknowledges the invaluable support of its diverse thought partners. The commitment, expertise, solutions, and collaboration they bring is critical to advancing AASCU’s mission. AASCU partners play a vital role in the ecosystem by supporting our members with the tools and strategies needed to advance the social, economic, and career mobility of their students, from all backgrounds, and their communities.

“EAB has partnered with AASCU for the past 5 years and since day one of working together, I have never experienced a more genuine and supportive partnership. We have continued to grow exponentially with the AASCU community by learning more about the real challenges and needs facing the higher education industry. The dual-learning relationship we experience with AASCU is unlike any other partnership and allows EAB to explore new relationships, strengthen existing ones, and expand support for HEI leaders.”
