Higher Education Membership
Providing you with the right tools, infrastructure, and services to help you navigate today’s challenges.
Internet2 convenes the U.S. higher education community to design and provide services to advance their academic and research missions.
Internet2 Higher Education membership is available to any not-for-profit, post-secondary degree-granting institution that is
- accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency as determined by the U.S. Secretary of Education, and
- legally organized and chartered as a higher education institution in one of the U.S. states, districts, or territories, even if its principal location or campus for conducting its academic mission is not located in one of the U.S. states, districts, or territories.
Higher Education members must establish a connection to the Internet2 Network through a regional Research and Education Network member/connector. Higher Education members are also encouraged to maintain membership over time (a collaborative community needs durable members) and to actively engage in Internet2 programs, services, and community groups.
Higher Education members pay an annual Sustaining Contribution (SC) that represents a combination of membership dues and network participation fees. A member’s SC is determined by two institutional scale factors — research expenditures and total expenditures. Members or prospective members should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about their SC and member benefits or complete the form below.
