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.
