We encourage anyone who shares a commitment to our principles to join NAS—and thus to take a stand in defending the true purposes of higher education and to unite with thousands of like-minded others. Membership includes a subscription to our journal Academic Questions.

Who May Join?

NAS membership is open to all who share a commitment to its core principles. A large majority of our members are current and former faculty members. We also welcome graduate and undergraduate students, teachers, college administrators, independent scholars, as well as non-academic citizens who care about the future of higher education. 


Is there any risk in Joining nas?

For some people at some institutions, perhaps. We recognize that graduate students and untenured faculty members run a risk if they join an organization that is famous for challenging campus orthodoxies.
