Consortia in higher education look very different from one another but at their core they aim to accomplish two goals for their member colleges and universities:

  •  Improve the excellence of individual institutions by doing something together that cannot be done as well – or at all – by a college or university on its own.
  • Reduce expenses at individual institutions through shared activities.


In other words, collaborations create opportunities and enable efficiencies. ACL provides members extensive resources, insights, and shared experiences for achieving high quality higher education collaboration. You can see some examples of the range of higher education collaborative activity in ACL's resource, Deep Academic and Administrative Collaborations.


Any organization, formal or informal, that is engaged in the coordination of collaborative endeavors by colleges and universities is eligible for membership. 


ACL Membership is based on your organization's current operating budget:


operating budget less than $100,000 = annual dues of $260.00

operating budget between $100,000 and $499,999 = annual dues of $520.00

operating budget between $500,000 and $999,999 = annual dues of $780.00.

operating budget is between $1,000,000 and $1,999,999, annual dues of $1,040.00

operating budget $2,000,000 or more = annual dues of $1,560.00


Individual Membership is available to those who are not affiliated with or employed by an ACL-eligible member organization but have demonstrated a sustained interest in the activities of ACL. If you work for a consortium, collaborative, center or other similar organization, you are ineligible for Individual Membership. Your organization will need to join ACL based on the chart above in order for you to enjoy the benefits of membership.  Annual dues are $78.00.


Associate Membership is a limited membership category, extended to specific higher ed organizations by invitation only.
