NASPA’s institutional members come from all 50 states and over 20 countries around the globe. A NASPA institutional membership demonstrates commitment to the advancement of the student affairs profession. Whether you’re a community college, a 4 year institution, a graduate or professional school, or an institution outside of the U.S., membership awards your campus with access to the largest network of student affairs professionals in the world.

Institutional members receive a complimentary individual membership for their Voting Delegate, usually the most senior student affairs officer on campus. Additionally, institutional membership subsidizes individual membership to NASPA for your entire campus community.

  • For 4-year institutions, institutional dues are calculated based on your full time equivalent enrollment and annual education and general fund expenditures as reported on the US Department of Education’s IPEDS data. Joining NASPA as an institutional member sends an important message to your staff and students that you are joining together with others to ensure a vital future for student affairs.
  • For community colleges, institutional dues are calculated based on your full-time equivalent enrollment as reported to the U.S. Departmen of Education's IPEDS data.
  • For non-U.S. institutions, institutional dues are set at a flate rate.
