Utilizing its Corporate Charter and By-Laws as a foundation, the Associated Universities, Inc. (AUI) Organization and Policy Manual identifies the broad organizational and operational principles under which AUI operates, including its Board of Trustees, Corporate Office and Research Centers.

In recognition of the need to maintain flexibility and allow for unique requirements, AUI Research Centers develop their own written policies, procedures, and detailed processes. Such Research Center policies and procedures shall be consistent with the high-level policies set forth in this Manual, but will reflect the varying needs and dynamic character of each Center, including any specific contractual requirements.
