CAUA: Helping American Education Illuminate The World
Thank you for visiting web site of The Council for American Universities Abroad (CAUA).
Throughout the world, the footprint of America's universities has forged paths to hope, opportunity and empowerment for people of all races, cultures and religions. American universities operating campuses and degree programs abroad have benefited as well, enriching their culture and curriculum, and enhancing their international prestige.
But the reciprocal value enjoyed between American universities abroad and their host communities transcends the interests of their relationship. Each new campus and degree program abroad represents an enduring gain of cross-culture public diplomacy between America and a valued partner nation.
The Council for American Universities Abroad (CAUA) is a U.S. non-profit organization created to support existing American universities and university programs abroad, as well as foster the creation of new ones. With expertise drawn from all facets of the complex task involved in extending the presence and curriculum of an American university overseas, CAUA is committed to maintaining the invaluable role American higher education serves throughout the world.
