Home > About IAU


The International Universities Bureau is IAU’s permanent Secretariat and its major instrument of program implementation, along with the Administrative Board, various Committees and Working Groups. Created by UNESCO in 1949, the Bureau was instrumental in preparing the International University Conference in Nice, 1950, at which the IAU was founded. Today, under the authority of the IAU and as a partner organization of UNESCO, its mission includes:

  • Monitoring and analysing trends in higher education and research at global level,
  • Collecting and sharing information,
  • Developing IAU positions and advocacy
