Become a Member of SCAIR

Enjoy Networking, Collaboration, and Profession Development With Other IE Professionals

Membership to SCAIR allows IR professionals to begin getting to know others in the field and provides an opportunity for individuals to share/learn best practices, collaborate on common projects and problems, and access an importing sounding board on behalf of their institution.

You will have access to best practices in accreditation, strategic planning, institutional research, and institutional effectiveness. SCAIR is an in-state network that you can call on to answer questions in real-time, whether it’s related to IPEDS, SACS COC, techniques in Tableau, or other relevant topics. Colleagues across the state become your friends that you can call on for help when you need it.

Members are the first to find out about workshops, conferences, and other professional development programs or events.
