AACRAO engages public policy issues affecting our members, the students they serve, and higher education as a whole. The association serves as a valued resource by keeping members abreast of emerging federal relations and policy initiatives, development, interpretation and implementation. AACRAO also provides members with compliance information on federal reporting and disclosure requirements, as well as related administrative and record-keeping issues. 

The association’s advocacy efforts are guided by its Public Policy and Education Agenda, which lays out guiding principles and outlines policy positions.

 An involved and active membership keeps AACRAO engaged with relevant issues.
