Welcome to Alabama Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (AAICU)

The purpose of the Alabama Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (AAICU) is to promote and protect the interests of independent higher education in Alabama and oversee scholarship fundraising efforts for students attending each of its fourteen member schools. AAICU was first founded in 1956 to benefit both students and member institutions through various fundraising activites.   

Our member colleges possess excellence in teaching and technology, low faculty- student ratios, high retention of students, and a unique, personal approach to education. These institutions teach students to master critical thinking skills, communicate effectively, gain an appreciation for the arts and humanities and a commitment to community service.
