NACU Programs

Research

NACU conducts a variety of studies to allow its campuses to compare themselves against their peers. These include a benchmarking dashboard using IPEDS data, an enrollment benchmarking dashboard, grant-funded research, and ‘quick studies’ that respond to your immediate needs and questions. Reach out to Sean Creighton or Michelle Apuzzio with questions or ideas for collaborative studies.

To get connected to the enrollment benchmarking dashboard, please reach out to Sean or Michelle, and they will connect you to Applied Policy Research (APR) which administers the dashboard.

Student Programs

NACU offers four student-focused programs — study abroad, student exchange, online courses, and an agreement with the Washington Internship Institute.

The NACU Student Exchange, also known as domestic study away, allows students from one NACU campus to study at another NACU campus. The student pays his/her regular tuition to his/her home campus so that the financial aid package remains intact. The student pays room and board (if applicable), as well as additional program fees, to the host campus.

To expand programming for students, NACU also helps promote short- and long-term study abroad programs and/or campuses’ online courses. NACU campuses have an online course agreement which allows students within NACU to take listed courses during the fall and spring semesters at no additional cost. The student’s home campus decides how many courses the student may take and if credits will transfer.

NACU also has an agreement with the Washington Internship Institute that allows its campuses to receive a 10 percent discount on program costs for their students.

Expert Webinars

We engage in professional development by leveraging expertise within and outside of NACU. For our webinars, we feature industry leaders on a variety of topics. NACU webinars are open to all administrators, faculty, and staff on campuses.

Summer Institute

The NACU Summer Institute provides a unique opportunity for professional development, discussion of issues common to our members, and networking. The institute is a catalyst for campus teams to work collaboratively on institutional strategy and improving educational outcomes.
