Independent Affiliates Program Application
We warmly invite individuals who share our commitment to liberal education, quality, and equity in undergraduate learning to join forces and become part of the AAC&U community.
The Independent Affiliates Program is open to:
- Faculty of all ranks and types at nonmember institutions*
- Undergraduate and graduate students at nonmember institutions*
- Professional staff at nonmember institutions*
- Independent scholars
- Retired faculty and administrators
- Alumni leaders
- Business and community leaders
* Faculty, students, and professional staff at AAC&U member institutions are not eligible to enroll in the Independent Affiliates Program. Instead, these colleagues are encouraged to join the Associates Program—also available at $70 per year—to deepen their engagement with AAC&U.
Please direct questions you may have regarding eligibility or requests for additional information to our Membership Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
