Name of creator
The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) was formed in 1911 and assumed its present name in 1965. Its members are Canada's public and private, not-for-profit universities and university-degree level colleges. Four provincial and regional associations of universities and some 20 national organizations representing specific academic or administrative interests are also members. A voluntary organization based in Ottawa, the AUCC promotes and facilitates co-operation and sharing among its members, and administers under contract scholarships and international programs. The AUCC also publishes a magazine, University Affairs, and an annual Directory of Canadian Universities.
