About ACUI Education Council areas

Ed Councils

ACUI is a knowledge-based organization that categorizes information into four Education Council areas commonly found in the college union and student activities profession:

Administration, Finance, and Management

Auxiliary Services

Campus Life and Program Management

Facilities and Operations

Education Council co-chairs

Each Education Council area has two volunteer co-chairs who help develop and direct educational content and resources for the Association. They help coordinate article submissions, educational sessions for the annual conference, and recruit individuals for ACUI’s Content Experts Database.

Regional Education Council chairs

Most ACUI Regional Leadership Teams also have regional Education Council chairs who help disseminate information about the core competencies, write articles, and categorize educational sessions for regional conferences.
