Academic Partnership Program


Some departments and programs have the need to coordinate membership enrollment of large numbers of students related to such activities as student chapters or class activities. As a result, student membership registration can be complicated. The primary issues often involve university financial policies and difficulty in collecting checks and similar logistics. To facilitate this process, the society has developed the “Academic Partnership Program” to simplify larger volumes of student membership registrations and related funds management. The primary goals for this program are to help with the administrative burden at the local university and facilitate the member registration process for students to join ASEM.

How It Works

Based on a fixed fee, the program allows an academic institution to facilitate a given number of individual student memberships on a large scale with minimal paperwork. Upon joining the program, the institution or the lead faculty member is issued an access code which allows the specified number of students to go directly to the ASEM web site and register as student members. They enjoy the benefits of membership such as receiving electronic copies of the society’s publications (the Engineering Management Journal, the Practice Periodical, and eNews), and enjoying reduced conference registration, and participation in society webinars. Most important, costs can be reduced due to economies of scale and local dues can retained locally to support student activities.

Program Details

Based on the needs of programs of various sizes, three partnership levels have been developed, to allow flexibility in supporting student members.

Academic Partnership Levels:

  • Level 1 Academic Partnership: Up to 25 students           $  500
  • Level 2 Academic Partnership: Up to 50 students           $1,000
  • Level 3 Academic Partnership: Up to 250 students         $2,000

    Program Operational Steps

    • When a department or college, joins this program, the partnership runs for the next 12 months from the time of sign up, or when the partner wants it to begin. For instance, a program may pay over the summer and begin in the fall semester, running the entire academic year.
    • The academic partner is provided an access code and students go directly to the ASEM web site and register using the code. The code will be good for a 12 month period or until the specified number has joined. Student memberships last the length of the partnership.
    • When the memberships are filled, the academic partner contact will be notified. Lists of members can be furnished, as needed.
    • Each academic partnership prime contact receives a professional membership.
