President King’s participation at the conference came as a result of his membership on both the Executive Committee of the International Association of University Presidents (IAUP) and the IAUP/UN Commission on Disarmament, Education, Conflict Resolution, and Peace.

Academic Impact is a global initiative that aligns institutions of higher education with the United Nations in actively supporting ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, literacy, sustainability and conflict resolution.

The goal of the initiative is to develop and enhance the relationship between the UN and the global higher education sector by offering additional opportunities for academic institutions to be actively involved with the United Nations’ mission, policies and actions. Academic Impact asks each participating college or university to actively demonstrate support of at least one of group’s ten principles each year.

“The historic UN Academic Impact Initiative (UNAI), with over 500 signatories from around the world, marks the first formal alliance between the UN and Global Higher Education,” commented Antioch University Los Angeles President King. “This powerful alliance addresses core issues of social justice, poverty alleviation, access to education, sustainability, and women's rights. It recognizes the crucial role that education plays in societal health, economic stability, and the promotion and preservation of our shared human rights.”

Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon presided over the event which welcomed higher education leaders from around the world. In his opening remarks, the Secretary-General noted that in creating Academic Impact and in formalizing a relationship between educators and the United Nations, the academic community will magnify its already positive impact upon the world. Through strong commitment, dedication, and dynamism, the Secretary-General believes that these scholars will help the UN toward achieving the Millennium Development Goals of eradicating extreme poverty and hunger and ensuring universal primary education.
