AICUP is dedicated to advancing state and federal policies and legislation that will ensure the continued success of Pennsylvania’s independent, nonprofit colleges and universities.

Take Action

It is important that policymakers hear from AICUP schools, staff and students. Please take the time to get involved and share your stories about unique things your school is doing or how your school has impacted your life.

Join Us for Student Advocacy Week

AICUP’s Student Advocacy Week is the chance for students of independent, nonprofit colleges and universities to have their voices heard on issues that are important to their education and their future. Every year, our student advocates meet with their elected officials, which helps inform vital public policy.
