Office of the Provost
The University is a member of three higher education consortiums, enabling us to share data with, and collect information from, a variety of sources.
Association of American Universities (AAU)
Rochester is one of 59 U.S. and two Canadian members of this nonprofit association of preeminent public and private research universities. AAU focuses on national and institutional issues that are important to research-intensive universities, including funding for research, research and education policy, and graduate and undergraduate education.
Association of American Universities Data Exchange (AAUDE)
AAUDE’s primary purpose is to facilitate the annual exchange of information of common interest by agreement of institutional representatives. AAUDE has no formal connection to the Association of American Universities (AAU).
Consortium On Financing Higher Education (COFHE)
Rochester is among 31 members of this consortium of highly selective, private liberal arts colleges and universities. COFHE’s data collection, research, and policy analysis focus on matters pertaining to access, affordability, and assessment, particularly as they relate to undergraduate education, admissions, financial aid, and the financing of higher education.
Questions about consortia membership and data sharing should be directed to Vini Falciano.
