Membership applications will be evaluated based on the ability of the applicant to meet or exceed the criteria listed above. The Membership Committee will not review applications that fail to adhere to the application guidelines described above. The Society is committed to building and maintaining a diverse membership and adhering to the principles that promote inclusive practices. The Society encourages applications from individuals who can contribute to the diversity of the Society (encompassing a wide range of characteristics, including race, ethnicity, cultural or socioeconomic background, religion, sex, gender, disability, etc.), whose work aligns closely with the mission of the Society, and who convey a strong vision of how they would contribute to that mission. Strong candidates will have – in addition to outstanding teaching, research or artistic contributions, service, and leadership – a demonstrated record of commitment to building a diverse educational environment.
The Committee will keep applications “live” on file for a maximum two years, if requested. Applicants who choose to re-apply for admission to the Society in the second year must indicate this in an email, and submit a current C.V. to the Committee Chair. Although only the new C.V. and email stating intention to re-apply are required in the second year, applicants are recommended to update their other materials (e.g., new examples of teaching excellence) when relevant. After this two year period, applicants continuing to seek admission into the Society should prepare a new application file, including a new C.V., updated teaching materials, and new letters of recommendation.
