Mission Statement

The American Council on Education (ACE) is the major coordinating body for all the nation's higher education institutions. ACE seeks to provide leadership and a unifying voice on key higher education issues and to influence public policy through advocacy, research, and program initiatives. Counted among its members are approximately 1,800 accredited, degree-granting colleges and universities and higher education-related associations, organizations, and corporations. Founded in 1918, ACE aims to foster greater collaboration and new partnerships within and outside the higher education community to help colleges and universities anticipate and address the challenges of the 21st century and contribute to a stronger nation and a better world. Three key strategic priorities drive ACE's activities: representation as advocate and voice for all of higher education, leadership development to enhance the diversity and capacity of American higher education leaders, and service to colleges, universities, and other higher education and adult learner organizations. ACE's areas of focus include access, success, equity, and diversity; institutional effectiveness; lifelong learning; and internationalization.
