Connect the dots. Invite the whole team.
The use of data and analytics can be a catalyst to solve institutional problems, but not when silos stand in the way. Organizational membership gives all staff and faculty at your institution access to AIR’s professional education, training, networking, resources, and member pricing.
Why organizational membership?
Organizational membership helps empower all higher education professionals to use data, information, and analytics in ways that are effective, ethical, and equitable and to support better decisions.
Organizational membership provides:
- Increased access to AIR training and education opportunities on effective and ethical data use.
- Increased understanding of the critical and strategic role of IR in data strategy and governance.
- Expanded professional networks and opportunities for collaboration around data-informed decisions and actions.
Plus, joining AIR clearly conveys your leadership’s commitment to organization-wide data-informed decision making for the benefit of students and higher education.
“AIR organizational membership helps our colleagues in the Registrar, HR, Faculty Affairs, Financial Aid, Libraries, and Finance offices all speak the same language, since we all have the same access to the incredible tools and trainings offered by AIR.”
— Justin Shepherd, Emory University
Organizational Membership: Types and Dues
The dues for an organizational membership are calculated based on the type of organization.
U.S. Institutions of Higher Education
With nearly 90% of current AIR members working at U.S. college and universities, organizational membership dues at U.S. higher education institutions were carefully designed to be affordable, with the different levels reflecting the size and resources of higher education institutions. Dues are calculated annually based on student full-time enrollment (FTE) and total institutional expenditures, as reported through IPEDS. (Note: For multicampus institutions, each institution with a unique IPEDS ID number will be treated as a separate organization.)
Organizations that are not U.S. higher education institutions can join for a modest flat fee that extends benefits to all their employees. This includes associations, companies, agencies, nonprofits, and international higher education institutions and organizations.
With organizational membership, your staff and faculty have access to all membership benefits, including professional development opportunities, networking, and resources.
