EDUCAUSE actively engages with colleges and universities, corporations, foundations, government, and other nonprofit associations to further the mission of transforming higher education through the use of information technology. Our strategic direction is to serve as a leader for the profession, convening the community on significant technology issues facing member institutions and higher education overall.

The breadth of professionals represented, our shared mission, and our collaborative spirit reflect our strong commitment to advancing the mission of higher education and growing the IT profession. As an associate member of EDUCAUSE, your organization will stay abreast of what's happening in higher education IT.

Membership Structure

Membership is open to organizations rather than individuals. Each organization has a primary representative who is the liaison for membership. Organizations that are not accredited higher education institutions are categorized as associate members. Associate membership offers all of the benefits of regular membership, except for the ability to vote in elections for the board of directors and serve on the board of directors.

Associations, state and federal agencies, system offices, and other nonprofit organizations may join EDUCAUSE for a flat annual fee of $1,340.00. Organizations may join at any time during the year at a prorated dues amount.
