AASCU: The First Ten Years. A Brief History of the First Decade of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities.
Hager, Walter E.
The American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) is an outgrowth of the Association of Teacher Education Institutions and the American Association of Teachers Colleges. The major purposes of the new organization founded in 1961 were: (1) to enable the members to make their influence felt in connection with national affairs; (2) to present the strengths and services of state colleges and universities effectively to the public and to agencies and individuals from which grants of funds might be available; (3) to represent the members of the Association in the National Commission on Accrediting; and (4) to conduct studies of educational problems of common interest to the members. As evidence of the strong and influential national position of the organization, the report cites the major endeavors of the Association. (JMF)
