Mission Statement:

The American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) is a global membership organization dedicated to advancing the vitality and democratic purposes of undergraduate liberal education. Through our programs and events, publications and research, public advocacy and campus-based projects, AAC&U serves as a catalyst and facilitator for innovations that improve educational quality and equity and that support the success of all students. In addition to accredited public and private, two-year and four-year colleges and universities and state higher education systems and agencies throughout the United States, our membership includes degree-granting higher education institutions in more than twenty-five countries as well as other organizations and individuals. To learn more, visit www.aacu.org.

What we do:

AAC&U supports the development and implementation of virtual exchange and collaborative online international learning programs and partnerships that help ensure equitable access to learning experiences that develop students’ global competencies.

These are the services we provide to the field:

Integrated into collaborative projects with global experts and partners, AAC&U’s VE/COIL Institute helps higher education institutions

  • transform to deliver forward-thinking capabilities like VE/COIL at scale;
  • increase investment and support for cutting-edge global education strategies;
  • strengthen their global partnerships and networks;
  • ensure equitable access to digital forms of global learning.


It is important to convey the scale and scope of your organization’s work. Please share with our members relevant data about the past year. You can indicate either the number of courses you supported, the number of instructors you trained, the number of students you worked with, the number of institutions you engaged or the number of your members, if you are a membership organization.

Scope of Work

Over the past year our organization has supported/engaged 100 institutions.

Collaboration is at the heart of VE/COIL. AAC&U works with a diverse range of partners and sponsors to co-develop and co-implement innovative VE/COIL projects and programs that serve the global higher education community.


Discussion of Costs and Fees

There is no cost to participate. However, institutions must apply to an initiative project to be considered. Campuses are encouraged to consider a diverse range of possible team members who represent important stakeholders for scaling and sustaining VE/COIL programs. Participating institutions will be required to establish the following designated roles:

  • One teaching faculty/professor/instructor
  • One instructional designer, COIL coordinator, or similar individual who will provide pedagogical support to instructors
  • One international education administrator or similar individual who will support the proposed faculty partnership as well as develop a framework for introducing and scaling VE/COIL at the institutional level


Unique VE programs our organization has developed

Through institutional self-assessment, campus visits, peer networking, and mentored support, the AAC&U Institute on Virtual Exchange/Collaborative Online International Learning (VE/COIL) helps higher education institutions develop the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to pursue sustainable VE/COIL partnerships.


The Institute on VE/COIL is integrated into a broader initiative through which AAC&U collaborates with partners and sponsors to co-develop and co-implement innovative VE/COIL projects and programs that serve the global higher education community.
