Full Institutional Membership

The membership fee structure has changed in part to reflect fairness to schools of differing student enrollments but also to innovate new leadership programming, and to offer more inclusive leadership year-long ‘conversations’… from ‘workinars’ to online learning, all at no additional cost. And if that isn’t compelling enough, members receive a discounted rate for participating at the Annual AAIE Leadership Learning Conversation.
