Michigan Association of State Universities
MASU serves as an advocate in the state capitol by monitoring and providing analysis on public policy issues and legislation affecting Michigan’s 15 public universities. In cooperation with policymakers, trustees, students, faculty and campus administrators, the Association plays an active role in developing and proposing state higher education policy to better serve Michigan’s citizens and the public good.
Serving as a primary information resource for its member institutions, MASU provides analysis of higher educational policy issues such as college accessibility and affordability. The Association further serves as a forum to develop a shared body of opinion on the needs of the 15 universities and their contributions to the state of Michigan, conducting conferences and meetings that involve all higher education stakeholder groups.
