ACUHO-I (housing and residence life)
Association of College and University Housing Officers – International
- ACUHO-I is the Association of College and University Housing Officers -International. ACUHO-I members believe in developing exceptional residential experiences at colleges, universities, and other post-secondary institutions around the world. ACUHO-I achieves its vision by providing innovative, value-driven programs, services, research, and development as well as networking opportunities that help support and evolve the collegiate housing industry. We do this with the constant purpose of making a positive difference in the lives of members and those they serve. Our members include thousands of housing professionals from more than 900 colleges and universities in 22 different countries, who serve approximately 1.8 million students worldwide. Our membership also includes more than 200 corporate members. To meet the needs of all students, we encourage participation at all levels of the association. Despite our impressive size, ACUHO-I remains a volunteer-driven association, with hundreds of volunteers heading up 32 committees and task forces. Leadership is provided by an elected executive board whose members are responsible for determining the vision of ACUHO-I, working on the dynamic nature of our strategic plan, and monitoring its progress. Support services are provided by a central office staff, which performs many essential functions from creating educational materials, to recruiting new members, to building relationships with other professional associations.
- STARS College is a 3-day experience for undergraduate students interested in learning more about Student Affairs and the Housing profession. Blending large group presentations, interactive activities, role play situations, self-evaluation, and small mentoring groups, STARS presents the world of Housing to those interested in the field. Each participant will be asked to have an “on-campus mentor,” who will play a vital role in continued mentoring and exposure to the field after STARS.
