Incorporated in August of 1991, The Associated Colleges of the South is a consortium through which our member colleges and universities can create and build programs not possible on an individual basis. By sharing resources, our members can increase the efficiency of their own operations. Our hope is that the ultimate beneficiary is the student.
The ACS is comprised of sixteen distinguished liberal arts colleges and universities. They are nationally recognized institutions located in the South, encompassing twelve states. They share a commitment to excellence in all their programs, offering rigorous academic programs and focusing on the growth and development of each student. They are also determined to be even better, using the ACS as a vehicle for improvement.
