The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) promotes excellence in astronomical research by providing access to information about the universe from state-of-the-art facilities, surveys, and archives. We establish, nurture, and promote public observatories and facilities (funded by NSF and NASA) that advance innovative astronomical research and are open to all based on a merit review. AURA is committed to public and educational outreach, and to diversity throughout the astronomical and scientific workforce.
