The South Atlantic Affiliate is the largest affiliate of NACURH, and is comprised of the nine most southeastern states in North America. These states include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. The South Atlantic Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (SAACURH) was formed in 1964 to advocate on behalf of all affiliated schools. While most affiliates of NACURH have a Regional Board of Directors, SAACURH has the SAACURH Executive Committee that is charged with the daily functions of the region and serve as a resource to our affiliated institutions. Also unlike other affiliates, SAACURH is home to nine independent state associations! To learn more about our state associations, click here.
About NACURH, Inc.
NACURH stands for the National Association of College and University Residence Halls. The operating structure of NACURH is comprised of eight regional affiliates and two corporate offices. Each region is responsible for all schools in their respective area. The two offices, the NACURH Information Center (NIC), and NACURH Services and Recognition Office (NSRO), each handle various association-wide responsibilities.
On the regional level, each region is led by a Regional Board of Directors (RBD) elected by the school representatives from that region. Each Regional Director and the Finance Officer also sit on the NACURH Board of Directors (NBD).
The NBD is comprised of the Regional Director and Finance Officer from each region and Corporate Office, as well as three national executives elected by the NBD from their own ranks. These executives are the NACURH Chairperson, The NACURH Associate for Finance, and The NACURH Associate for Administration. In addition, the NBD Liaison from the NACURH annual conference staff, the Conference Resource Consultant, and the NACURH Advisor also sit on the board.
In most circumstances, each of the eight regions receives one vote, with the offices and national executives participating in debate. For more details, please refer to the NACURH Constitution and Policy Book.
The National Association of College and University Residence Halls, NACURH Incorporated, seeks to create a network of engaged citizens sharing common experiences through residential leadership opportunities.
