Associated Colleges of the Midwest

The 14 colleges are located in five states (Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Colorado). The ACM was established in 1958 and is headquartered in Chicago. The consortium's current president is Chris Welna.

One of the ACM's largest initiatives is coordination of several off-campus study programs, which are available to students at any college or university, though many participants come from the ACM member institutions. Study programs include both domestic programs and international programs (study abroad). ACM off-campus study programs have been offered since 1960. Many programs emphasize off-campus study with a liberal arts perspective.

The following programs are currently offered:

  • Chicago Program: Arts, Entrepreneurship, & Urban Studies
  • Newberry Seminar: Research in the Humanities
