NACURH stands for the National Association of College and University Residence Halls. The operating structure of NACURH is comprised of eight regional affiliates and one corporate office. Each region is responsible for all schools in their respective area. The office, known as the NACURH Corporate Office (NCO), handles 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 NACURH 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 receive one vote, with the office and executives participating in debate. For more details, please refer to the NACURH Bylaws and Policy Book.

The NACURH Links

The first link represents caring. Leaders are people who care, they are concerned about themselves and others, and they are committed to make things better. ​

The second link represents dedication. Part of a leader's commitment is the dedication to a cause, which they display. Dedication is an important part of the involvement required to be truly effective.

The third link represents participation. True leaders participate fully in their academic pursuits, their friendships, their activities, and their lives. Leaders don't sit on the sidelines, but are team players.

Together, the unbroken chain symbolizes the membership of NACURH and NRHH. As leaders, we are interconnected as caring and dedicated participants in the community of our universities.
