Message from the Consortium President
On behalf of our member institutions, I am delighted to introduce you to the American Consortium of Universities website. The website provides a general overview of the Consortium and lists specific programs offered by each member institution. It is designed as a convenient reference for educational advisors, placement counselors, sponsors, parents, and students. This website showcases a select group of universities committed to meeting the diverse educational needs of international students interested in higher education in the U.S.
The American Consortium of Universities (ACU) is a group of accredited institutions of higher education with superior programs and features. Its members serve the educational needs of thousands of international students from around the world. The scope of ACU’s offerings is varied, and far-reaching, ranging from associate degrees to doctoral programs in numerous fields, including advanced science, engineering and technology, and programs as diverse as accounting, engineering, law, business administration, textiles, nutrition and sports medicine.
ACU is not just about strong academic programs. International students flourish in institutions committed to international education, as evidenced by the resources — people, facilities, support services, etc.– they devote to it. That commitment stems from a mission, not only to help international students excel educationally, but to enlist their contributions to enrich academic and learning environments for American students. It also comes from ACU institutional programs to send American students to other countries to study; their cultural learning leads them to be better global citizens and fellow students with international students when they return.
Thank you for your interest in our ACU programs and institutions. We hope that this website will familiarize you with our offerings, answer some of your initial questions, and assist you in the selection of a school for yourself or for students you are counseling. We look forward to your inquiries and to serving your students’ educational needs on our campuses.
