What's New See All

AAC&U grieves with the family and friends of George Floyd over their ongoing trauma and loss. We acknowledge that the repeated incidents of anti-Black police violence did not begin or end with the killing of George Floyd. Neither will they end with the conviction of Derek Chauvin. These wrenching incidents and their aftermath point to the profound and urgent need for racial equity and healing in our communities and across our country.
AAC&U joined almost fifty other higher education organizations in signing a statement opposing efforts across the nation to suppress voting by qualified voters, including college students. We call on lawmakers to take action to ensure that civic participation in America continues to move forward, not backward.
