International Association of Universities (IAU)

Make a Difference! Support the IAU - the Global Voice of Higher Education!

The International Association of Universities (IAU) is convinced that higher education is a significant force of transformation, human development and peace and advocates for collaborative, multi-dimensional, equitable and fair cooperation among HEIs and stakeholders across the world, with a focus on sustainability and an increase in quality for the good of humanity. The world is facing a variety of challenges – health and environmental hazards, economic uncertainty, international insecurity, and disruptive new technologies, to name a few. It is through higher education that future leaders, experts, and change makers become empowered to overcome these challenges - it is the IAU’s task to maximize opportunities to do so.

Thank you for supporting IAU’s wide range of programmes and activities in the interest of higher education.

Especially the four priorities: Internationalization of Higher Education, Technology in HE, and Sustainable Development in Higher Education.

IAU is celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year with a launch on 9 December 2020 - the historical date of the signing of the IAU Constitution! Ever since its foundation under the auspices of UNESCO in 1950, the IAU has developed its capacity to act as the Global Voice of Higher Education. While we proudly look back at our past, we continue to strive for the advancement of higher education today and in the future. Support our [email protected] Anniversary Festivities!

>> Support the Academic Values Fund

Support the IAU advocacy activities and make sure that fundamental academic values are safeguarded and strengthened. In an ever-changing world, academic freedom, institutional autonomy, scientific integrity and all the other shared values which marks and binds universities together as institutions of independent critical thinking are increasingly compromised by market pressures and political interference. Support the IAU in its values-led initiatives such as the IAU Webinar Series 'The Future of Higher Education', publications, leadership programme and campaigns.

>> Support the University Leaders Solidarity Fund

Supporting university leaders and researchers from least-developed countries to attend the IAU Conference is a cost-effective, yet highly impactful way to enable university leaders from least-developed countries to take part in the global higher education debates. The beneficiaries enlarge their network, engage with what IAU stands for, and contribute to the debate on key themes in higher education for their own and everyone else’s benefit. Enable more upcoming leaders from least developed countries to access resources and insights that can bolster their institution.

>> Support the Membership Solidarity Fund

Show your solidarity with universities that are struggling financially to become or retain their IAU Membership. Enable them to avail of the international network the IAU provides and make their voice be heard. Your contribution would support the way towards more inclusive and equitable higher education.
