History of AUREO

In 1983, Frank Morrow of Stanford University and Jack Schappel of the University of California, along with and at the behest of Ira Fink, hosted the first "organizing" meeting.  Approximately 24 institutions attended.  (Additional information including a list of attendees is shown below in the link to that Conference.)  

Everyone agreed to a second meeting in six months. Alice Gerow of the University of Virginia was named chair, and John Craddock of the University of North Carolina and Neal Lessenger of the University of Washington conducted the program at Chapel Hill. The name of the organization, the constitution and the bylaws all were adopted at this meeting in Chapel Hill.

Each member of the group advocated for the small, informal, unincorporated organization that resulted. 

AUREO's member institutions now represent most major universities in the United States and Canada.
