Who We Are

Founded in 1928

The Southern Association of College and University Business Officers (SACUBO) was founded in 1928 to inform higher education institutions in the southern region of the United States about issues affecting higher education.


SACUBO’s mission is to contribute to superior higher education financial and administrative services by providing relevant professional development, thought leadership, and issue advocacy.


SACUBO, a volunteer-led organization, is committed to delivering professional development opportunities and providing information to help members improve or develop their capabilities in higher education business management, to promoting improved principles and efficient practices in the business and financial management of colleges and universities, and to educating members regarding professional standards and ethical conduct in the performance of their duties and responsibilities.


SACUBO’s current membership is comprised of approximately 700 institutions and organizations primarily from the southeastern region of the United States. These institutions are predominantly colleges and universities but also include business partners and other affiliates. SACUBO serves as a conduit to foster the exchange of information and resources among its constituency.

SACUBO is one of four regional associations that constitute the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO).

NACUBO is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and represents more than 2,100 colleges and universities across the country.

NACUBO specifically represents chief business and financial officers through advocacy efforts, community service, and professional development activities. The association's mission is to advance the economic vitality, business practices, and support of higher education institutions in pursuit of their missions.
