The SERU Consortium includes major American research universities, all of which are members of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU). Each SERU-AAU Consortium campus administers a customized, on-line census SERU Survey, collaborates in further development of survey topics and questions, shares best practices and data under agreed protocols, collaborates in policy symposiums, and engages in collective research on major challenges facing research universities.

In collaboration with the Center for Studies in Higher Education at the UC Berkeley, the SERU AAU Survey administration and project management is conducted by the University of Minnesota.
