About The Journal

The College and University Auditor Journal is an official publication of the Association of College and University Auditors.  Published three times a year, the College and University Auditor is written and edited specifically for college and university internal auditors.

Articles published cover a wide variety of topics related to internal auditing in higher education including: accounting, auditing, risk assessment and management, computer security and information systems, fraud, legislation and regulatory issues, and international higher education issues.  Most of the articles are written by internal auditors working in higher education who share their unique perspectives, experience, and expertise.

The volunteer staff of the College and University Auditor strive to publish a timely, recognized, professional journal that informs, connects, and supports higher education internal audit, assurance, and consulting professionals.
