ACUA Faculty Program

The Program 

One of ACUA’s greatest assets is the number of talented speakers among its membership. ACUA’s faculty list is a terrific resource if your association or university is looking for talented speakers on topics such as risk, internal controls, auditing, compliance and fraud.

ACUA Faculty - Areas of Expertise

Invite ACUA Faculty to Speak at Your Event

Please complete the request form and email it to the ACUA Office at The Faculty members selected are responsible for negotiating travel, honoraria, etc. with those requesting their services. ACUA does not receive any funds from the use of the ACUA Faculty but does ask that organizations list presenters as ACUA Faculty in program materials.

ACUA Faculty “Training for Travel” program

The ACUA Faculty “Training for Travel” program was developed to assist member institutions with arranging for training to be provided by an ACUA Faculty member in exchange for payment of the Faculty member’s travel expenses.

Using the ACUA Faculty program, member institutions may either contact a Faculty member or the Faculty Director to discuss whether their training needs can be fulfilled by a Faculty member. Now, with mutual agreement between the requesting member institution and a Faculty member, the training can be provided in person by the Faculty member for only the cost of their travel expenses. The ACUA Faculty Training Travel Form was developed to assist with this process as long as the requesting member institution and the Faculty member are agreeable to the arrangement.

Use of the form is free, but there will be a cost of $65 per training participant if CPE is requested.

New for Faculty Use!

Please feel free to share the following materials with your speaking audience. They are intended to provide helpful information on internal auditing, higher education internal auditing, and ACUA! You may print the materials to distribute to your audience or distribute the materials electronically. In addition to brochures and half-sheet handouts, there are also a few slide options for use in PowerPoint presentations.
