    • The American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) is an organization of state-supported colleges and universities that offer degree programs leading to bachelor's, master's or doctoral degrees. AASCU grew out of the Association of Teacher Education Institutions that had been organized in 1951 to serve public comprehensive institutions. Most of the original member institutions began as single purpose institutions, most commonly normal schools.

      Members of AASCU work to extend higher education to all citizens, including those who have been traditionally underrepresented on college campuses. By delivering America’s promise by being stewards of education, these institutions fulfill the expectations of a public university by working for the public good through education and engagement, thereby improving the lives of people in their community, their region and their state. The American Association of State Colleges and Universities represents nearly 420 public colleges, universities and systems of higher education throughout the United States and its territories.

      AASCU's current president is Muriel A. Howard, former president of Buffalo State College and a former vice president of the University at Buffalo.
