The American Research Universities – HR Institute’s formation is predicated on the recognition of the leadership and management complexities related to the size and scope of its affiliated universities. Membership is conferred automatically and exclusively to the Chief Human Resource Officer of each university designated as a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU).

The ARU-HR Institute is organized and operated for the purpose of:  

1) Providing a forum for professional relationships among CHROs who are responsible for the nation’s most complex universities.

2) Assembling the CHROs of these universities and other academicians in the corporate, public and university sectors for advanced executive development, exposure and opportunities.

3) Elevating the human resources discourse and leadership effectiveness of the nation’s major research universities.
