The Association of American Universities (AAU) is an organization of leading research universities devoted to maintaining a strong system of academic research and education. It consists of sixty universities in the United States (both public and private) and two universities in Canada.

[edit] Organization

AAU was founded in 1900 by a group of fourteen Ph.D.-granting universities in the United States to strengthen and standardize American doctoral programs. Today, the primary purpose of the AAU is to provide a forum for the development and implementation of institutional and national policies, in order to promote strong programs in academic research and scholarship and undergraduate, graduate, and professional education. The AAU holds two annual meetings. The fall meeting is conducted on a member campus while the spring meeting is held in the headquarters city of Washington, D.C.

[edit] Membership

[edit] Admission

AAU membership is by invitation only, which requires an affirmative vote of three-fourths of current members. Invitations are considered every three years, and are only extended to those universities who are deemed by the AAU to have exceptional quality in their research and graduate education programs. Year of admission is shown in parentheses.

[edit] Comparison with the American Association of State Colleges and Universities

Unlike the AAU, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) is an organization whose membership is restricted to state-supported colleges and universities in the United States that offer degree programs leading to bachelor's, master's or doctoral degrees. As of 2006, the AASCU represents more than four hundred public colleges, universities and systems of higher education throughout the United States of America and its territories. A few institutions are members of both the AAU and the AASCU.
