Academic Department Membership

Ensure That Your Entire Faculty Are Members of ACM

The ACM Academic Department Membership option allows universities and colleges to provide ACM Professional Membership to their faculty at a greatly reduced collective cost.

ACM offers a membership for academic department faculty at the cost of $49 per person. This is more than half off our standard professional membership fee of $99 per year. To qualify for this rate, all tenure-track faculty members must be included, although other department members may also be added. ACM will send a single invoice for your academic department membership.  

Through this program, each faculty member will receive all the benefits of individual professional ACM membership, including Communications of the ACM, member rates to ACM Special Interest Group conferences, member subscription rates to ACM journals, and much more.

This offer benefits the computing community as a whole by allowing more faculty to participate in their professional communities and to receive ACM member benefits.

To get started, simply provide a list of faculty names and email addresses. We'll contact your faculty to request mailing addresses for Communications of the ACM print editions. We'll handle the mechanics of annual billing, and adding and removing faculty dynamically as they join your department or leave.
