Application Materials

Application materials for institutions to join AAC&U are not available online.

To receive additional information regarding AAC&U, a comprehensive summary of membership benefits, and application materials specific to your institution, please contact Dennis W. Renner, Director for Membership, at (202) 884-7435 or

Application materials will include your institution’s dues invoice and provide the opportunity for your institution to designate its AAC&U Representatives.

Application materials also provide the option to directly involve additional individuals at your institution through AAC&U’s Associates Program.  The enrollment fee is $60 per individual and can be included with your institution’s dues payment.

Strategically placed across departments and disciplines, AAC&U Representatives and Associates can expand campus dialogue, encourage collaborations, and strengthen connections between your community and the AAC&U national network.

Application Submission and Processing

To join, simply return your institution’s dues invoice, roster of designated AAC&U Representatives,  AAC&U Associates Program enrollments, if any, and payment to AAC&U.  The total remittance should include AAC&U membership dues and fees for any individuals enrolled in the Associates Program at the time of application.

Following submission, everyone within your campus community can begin to take immediate advantage of member meeting registration rates and publication discounts.

Throughout the year, each designated Representative and enrolled Associate will receive:

  • AAC&U subscription periodicals
  • Calls for proposals for meeting sessions
  • Announcements and application information for AAC&U's Summer Institutes
  • Invitations to apply for grant-funded projects and other initiatives
