The American Universities’ China Association (AUCA) is an association of professionals representing international higher education institutions in China. Founded in 2014 by three American university representatives, AUCA members are professionals working for oversea universities in China. Up to now, over 100 representatives from more than 70 U.S. universities have joined AUCA.

The association is dedicated to promoting educational, academic, and cultural exchanges and partnerships between international higher education institutions and Chinese universities. AUCA encourages networking among professionals, convenes conferences and collaborative dialogues, and promotes research and knowledge creation to strengthen and serve the field. We lead the way in advocating for a better world through international education.

The governing body of AUCA is composed of the Steering Committee, with four working committees underneath it: Student Career Services Committee, Student Recruitment Committee, Alumni Engagement Committee, and Academic Partnership Committee. AUCA hosts two conferences every year for its members to discuss topics in international education. AUCA members also jointly organize career fairs, career development forums, college fairs, and alumni saloons every year.
