American Association of University Administrators (AAUA)

American Association of University Administrators is a non-profit professional organization for higher education leaders and administrative personnel. It is the only professional association for individuals who are interested in the entire range of higher education management (from department chair/unit director through president) in the entire diverse set of American colleges and universities (two- and four-year; public, private non-profit, private for-profit; comprehensive, research-focused, special mission).

The stated mission of AAUA is to develop and advance superior standards and practices for the profession of higher education administration, particularly emphasizing the responsibility of administrators, at all levels, to demonstrate moral and ethical leadership in the exercise of all their duties. Our association works actively to:

Promote the professional development of individuals engaged in the administration of higher education.
Promulgate ethical and professional standards for administrators and institutions of higher education.
Cultivate the mutuality of interests of those engaged in or concerned with the administration of higher education.
Membership in AAUA helps support the association's mission. In addition, membership provides—for those members who have an interest—opportunities for professional networking and leadership. In addition to enrolling and serving a significant complement of administrators at the most senior levels, the association is also interested in assisting early-career practitioner administrators build/enhance their leadership portfolios by providing leadership opportunities through service on association committees, boards, and taskforces. Opportunities to collaborate on offering professional development services are available as well.
