Advancing Auditing in Higher Education


Association of College & University Auditors

As the complexity of higher education intensifies, the need for internal audit, risk management, and compliance services has never been greater. Since its incorporation in 1958, ACUA has been a primary resource for higher education auditing, regulatory compliance, and risk management. This website was developed to further serve the higher education community to help enhance internal controls, risk mitigation, and compliance monitoring systems.

Volunteer Opportunity

With a time commitment of only one hour, you can have an impact on one of ACUA’s most valuable resources – the Risk Dictionary.  “How,” you ask, “can I take advantage of this fantastic opportunity?!”  Here’s how:  we are looking for “Risk Owners” of the areas included in the Risk Dictionary.  As Risk Owners, you will simply review the current information in the Risk Dictionary for your area(s), consider risks and/or controls that need to be added, and send the updated information back to us. 

To get started:  Just look through this listing and choose a few areas where you have some knowledge or recent audit experience.  Once we have identified Risk Owners, we will provide you with brief guidance on writing the risks and controls and work with you to update your section.  

For more information or to get started contact us today!
