NACU offers opportunities for both faculty and students. Stay up-to-date by joining our mailing list.
Many campuses also have a Faculty Ambassador (or sometimes two Ambassadors) whose objectives are to communicate NACU opportunities to others, especially faculty, on their campuses and to help facilitate collaboration among faculty at NACU campuses. Be on the lookout for NACU-related news from your campus’ Faculty Ambassador.
NACU has four programs that provide additional opportunities to your students.
The NACU Student Exchange, also known as domestic study away, allows students from one NACU campus to study at another NACU campus. Some campuses offer specific programs known as Signature Experiences that take advantage of their locations or unique expertise.
NACU offers three other student-focused programs, two of which enable campuses to fill programs that might otherwise go unused. NACU can help promote your short- and long-term study abroad programs and/or your 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.
NACU’s Peer External Program Review program connects you with faculty or an administrator at another NACU campus to provide an external review of a program, department, or college. By working with like-minded peers, both campuses benefit from this learning engagement.
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.
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.
