ACAD is proud to work with a variety of organizations serving the needs of those working in academic administration and Higher Education. Together we are developing programming, networking opportunities and resources that benefit us all.

Association of American Colleges & Universities

AAC&U logoAAC&U is the leading national association committed to making liberal education and inclusive excellence the foundation for institutional purpose and educational practice in higher education. ACAD and AAC&U enjoy an historic affiliation through our mutual commitment to fostering liberal education. The two organizations work collaboratively on the co-sponsorship of the Annual Meeting and other programming efforts.

Council of Colleges of Arts & Sciences

CCAS logoCCAS is a national professional association that provides state-of-the-art professional development, managerial resources, and leadership opportunities for Arts and Sciences deans, chairs, and staff that: shape national conversations and policy relevant to arts and sciences education at all levels; leverage existing and emergent partnerships with other organizations; and utilize a diverse set of delivery systems. ACAD and CCAS are currently partnering on new programming specifically for assistant/associate deans. The new programming is available at each organizations’ annual meeting with plans to develop a stand-alone event in the future.

Phi Beta Kappa keyThe Phi Beta Kappa Society

Phi Beta Kappa celebrates and advocates excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. Its campus chapters invite for induction the most outstanding arts and sciences students at America’s leading colleges and universities. The Society sponsors activities to advance these studies — the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences — in higher education and in society at large. For more than 15 years, ACAD and PBK partnered on a biennial conference as well as jointly hosting a reception at the ACAD Annual Meeting.

POD Network

POD Network logoThe Professional and Organizational Development Network in Higher Education (POD) was officially founded in March, 1976, at the spring conference of the American Association for Higher Education (AAHE). Since then, POD has held national conferences every year, and is the largest and oldest faculty development organization in the world. It has remained committed to outreach throughout its history, and as a global leader has contributed to the development of national and regional faculty development organizations around the world.

ACAD is always interested in collaborating with others in the field to develop programming, resources and networking opportunities. If you are interested in working with ACAD please email us at and include Partnership Interest in the subject line.
