About us

We believe that international collaboration is central to achieving our mission of building a better world through higher education.

By bringing universities together from around the world – and crucially the people who study and work within them ‒ we help to advance knowledge, promote understanding, broaden minds, and improve lives.

We champion higher education as a cornerstone of stronger societies, supporting our members, partners, and stakeholders as they adapt to a changing world.

We are: 

  • A catalyst for positive change
  • A platform for collaboration
  • A champion of higher education
