There are two types of CLAC membership: institutional and individual.
Institutional members may include: institutions of higher education, primary and secondary educational institutions, educational non-profit organizations, international education providers. Institutional members will have a formal CLAC program on their campus or will be in the process of developing a program.
One becomes an institutional member by indicating the desire to become a member to the CLAC officers. Also, institutional member representatives are expected to be active participants in CLAC conferences and other activities.
Individual members include those who: support the basic goals of CLAC (i.e. international education professionals, higher education faculty and staff, graduate and undergraduate students, k-12 educators, policy makers, representatives of governmental and non-governmental organizations, business professionals, etc.)
One becomes an individual member by attending a CLAC conference or by requesting to become a member. In accordance with CLAC By-Laws, the membership roster will be monitored and periodically updated to remove non-active individual members. Non-active institutional members will be contacted prior to being removed from the membership roster.
Please address membership requests to CLAC Interim Consortium Chair, JY Zhou (Jiangyuan.Zhou@stockton.edu) or Interim Vice-Chair Bernd Estabrook (email@example.com).
