Association of Atlantic Universities

Atlantic Canada's universities are vital to the social, cultural and economic life of the region.

The Association of Atlantic Universities (AAU) represents the university community and pursues issues of common interest to our members. We provide a forum where university executives reflect, consult and collaborate; define common objectives and positions; develop strategies to promote, collectively and cooperatively, the highest ideals of post secondary education; and exercise leadership to promote objectives.
 
One of AAU’s primary roles is to create greater awareness and understanding of the important contribution of universities to the social and economic development of Atlantic Canada.
