AAC&U Representatives

AAC&U member institutions designate AAC&U Representatives who serve as direct liaisons to AAC&U throughout the year.

AAC&U Representatives receive subscriptions at no additional cost to all AAC&U print and electronic periodicals – Liberal Education, Peer Review, Diversity & Democracy, and AAC&U News.

AAC&U Representatives also receive other value-added benefits that include invitations to apply for grant-funded projects and calls for proposals for institutes and meetings.

Reduced Meeting Registration Rates

Administrators, faculty, staff, and students alike can take advantage of member rates when registering for AAC&U’s Annual Meeting or Network for Academic Renewal Meetings throughout the year.

AAC&U members accepted to participate in the AAC&U Summer Institutes qualify for substantially lower team registration rates as well. See upcoming AAC&U events.

Publication Discounts

Everyone within your institution can take advantage of member discounts on all AAC&U publications.

AAC&U members can copy and distribute articles and excerpts from select AAC&U publications at no additional charge for faculty development and other internal campus activities (see AAC&U Permission Policies).

AAC&U’s Associates Program

AAC&U’s Associates Program allows other individuals within your institution to receive the same value-added benefits as AAC&U Representatives.  The annual enrollment fee ($70) is deliberately modest to encourage participation.

This opportunity builds campus networks and strategically places liaisons to share AAC&U resources and opportunities across campus offices, departments and disciplines.
