CAS Standards respond to student needs, the requirements of sound pedagogy, and the effective management of 47 functional areas and 3 cross-functional areas. Individuals and institutions from over 40 CAS member organizations comprise a constituency of over 115,000 professionals. Representing a significant majority of higher education practitioners in student programs and services throughout the country and beyond, CAS provides tools to higher education leaders assessing institutional effectiveness, student learning, and outcomes.
On the 40th anniversary of our founding, CAS is pleased to announce the publication of the 10th Edition of CAS Professional Standards for Higher Education, a publication that has become a staple for higher education leaders and practitioners.
