AASCU's 400 public college and university members are found throughout the United States, and in Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
We range in size from 1,000 students to 44,000. We are found in the inner city, in suburbs, towns and cities, and in remote rural America. We include campuses with extensive offerings in law, medicine and doctoral education—as well as campuses offering associate degrees to complement baccalaureate studies. We are both residential and commuter, and with on-line degrees as well. Yet common to virtually every member institution are three qualities that define its work and characterize our common commitments: access and opportunity, student-centered, and stewards of place.
