IACUE policy regarding membership
purpose of IACUE membership
IACUE is a member-led organization which offers membership to
professionals working in or associated with the stimulation and
facilitation of internationalization in higher education worldwide.
The IACUE anticipates that individuals will use their membership of
the organization as a means of raising the profile of international
education within their own organizations, networking with colleagues
on matters relating to internationalization in higher education, and
enhancing their knowledge and professionalism in the field.
IACUE offers the status of courtesy associate to organizations with
which the IACUE itself wishes to foster a closer working
relationship. Courtesy associate status is offered by the IACUE to
such organizations and may not be unilaterally claimed by
organizations. The status of courtesy associate is not available to
organizations unless an explicit relationship has been established
and explicitly agreed.
Misrepresentation of the IACUE and misuse of IACUE membership
IACUE accepts membership applications from individuals or corporate
who are willing to operate within the parameters set by the IACUE.
Where it can be shown that an member misuses membership, makes false
statements about membership of the IACUE, illegitimately claims a
relationship with the IACUE, or otherwise operates in a manner which
breaches the IACUE stated parameters, such members will have their
membership summarily terminated.
Decisions relating to the revoking of IACUE membership will be made
by the Association Committee and confirmed by the President and
Director. Such decisions will be communicated in writing by the
Director to the individuals concerned.
organizations which are shown to make claims for themselves or their
associates which are in breach of the Association principles as
stated above will be subject to legal action taken by the IACUE to
preserve its status and public probity.
