We understand that not all institutions use the same language to define their units. These departmental memberships are designed to give individual units an opportunity to engage with the a2ru network as they build connections across their university that would allow them to reach the threshold to sustain an institutional membership. If your unit is made up of multiple disciplines and will draw from multiple budgets to pay for your membership, please select an interdepartmental membership, or consider our 1-year Affiliate institutional membership level.

 

One invoice will be issued for interdepartmental memberships; all departments must pay together in a single payment.
