Association of University Administrators - University of Portsmouth Branch

The AUA is the professional body for managers and administrators working in HE in the UK and Ireland. It was formed from a merger of CUA and APA (Conference of University Administrators and Association of Polytechnic Administrators) when the Polytechnics acquired university status, so has a history dating back to the 1960s and 70s.

Its aim is to promote excellence in HE management and administration and it is committed to raising the profile of management and administration in HE as a profession, developing best practice and high standards in the area.
