About Us

Established in 1967 by college and university presidents, AICUM consists of 60 degree-granting, accredited independent, or private, colleges and universities in the Commonwealth. AICUM is the leading voice on public policy matters relating to independent higher education in Massachusetts.

AICUM works closely with its member institutions to preserve and strengthen higher education; provide advocacy for need-based financial aid for Massachusetts students; help create a climate in the state in which the resources of privately supported higher education are fully leveraged; address state and Federal legislative and regulatory issues; and bring about a greater understanding of the impact and contributions of the independent colleges and universities in the Commonwealth.
