The Association of American Universities is comprised of 60 U.S. and two Canadian public and private research universities. The ARU-HR Institute’s formation is predicated on the recognition of the leadership, governance and management complexities related to size and scope of AAU universities.
The ARU-HR Institute is organized and operated for the purpose of:
1) Providing a forum for professional relationships among CHROs who are responsible for the nation’s most complex universities.
2) Assembling the CHROs of these universities and other academicians in the corporate, public and university sectors for advanced executive development, exposure and opportunities.
3) Elevating the human resources discourse and leadership effectiveness of the nation’s major research universities.
