Associated Colleges of the Chicago Area is a consortium of 15 private liberal arts colleges that was formed in 1966, governed by a Board of Directors composed of the academic deans and/or chief academic officers of the member institutions. ACCA’s primary objective is to promote collegiate education in biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, psychology, sociology/anthropology, and business/economics by stimulating and regularizing cooperative arrangements between the member colleges and universities and government laboratories and other educational institutions in the use of staff and facilities.
