International Association of University Presidents
The International Association of University Presidents (IAUP) is an association of university chief executives from higher education institutions around the world.[1] The IAUP was founded in 1964 in Oxford.[2] Membership is limited to those individuals who serve as presidents, rectors or vice-chancellors at regionally accredited colleges or universities.[1]
The primary purpose is to strengthen the international mission and quality of education of higher education institutions around the world.[3]
It is a non-governmental organization holding the highest (ECOSOC) consultation rights at the United Nations and formal consultation rights with UNESCO.[1] It is headquartered in the United Nations Plaza in New York City.[4] IAUP counts about 120 universities' representatives from 21 countries.[5]
IAUP is a founding member of the World University Consortium, a major initiative of the World Academy of Art and Science to design a global system of higher education attuned to emerging opportunities and challenges.
The association hosts a gathering of chief executive officers from universities around the world every three years.[6]
The IAUP was founded in 1964 by university leaders from the United States, South Korea, Puerto Rico, the Philippines and Liberia.[1][7][8][9][10] The inaugural conference took place in June 1965 in Oxford, England.[7]
IAUP's mission includes providing a worldwide vision of higher education, sponsoring effective networking between university leaders, and promoting peace and international understanding through education.[11]
