AAU Fact Sheet

The Association of American Universities (AAU) is an organization of research universities devoted to maintaining a strong system of academic research and education. It consists of sixty U.S. universities and two Canadian universities.

AAU was founded in 1900 by a group of fourteen Ph.D.-granting universities in the U.S. to strengthen and standardize U.S. doctoral programs. Today, the primary purpose of the AAU is to provide a forum for the development and implementation of institutional and national policies promoting strong programs in academic research and scholarship and undergraduate, graduate, and professional education.

I would ask the governments to stop subsidizing these schools.
