Arden joins ACU

Arden University has recently received membership to the Association of Commonwealth Universities.

As one of the few private universities to have been accepted for membership, Arden's inclusion within the ACU places it among 500 institutions dispersed across over 50 countries. 

As the world's first and oldest international university network, the ACU has been bringing universities together from across the Commonwealth for more than 100 years.

Established in 1913, the ACU is a global network of universities with a shared commitment to building a better world through international collaboration in higher education.

Membership will provide Arden with access to share and hear about good practice, the opportunity for colleagues and students to apply for funding, and introductions for strategic partnerships to work on developing approaches that address key challenges such as access and inclusion; supporting research; and strengthening universities.

The ACU’s accredited status also provides a platform from which to influence policy agendas at the highest levels.

‘I'm pleased to announce that Arden University has been accepted as a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities,’ said Carl Lygo, Arden University’s Vice Chancellor & Chief Executive Officer. 

‘This milestone signifies our commitment to international collaboration, innovative research, and inclusive approach to education. We look forward to fostering academic connections and engaging with other membership institutions.'
