Ways to Engage with the Academy

There are several ways members can be involved in the life and work of the Academy. 

Participate in the Member Election Process

Members may submit nominations, vote for candidates, and serve on selection panels.

Contribute to Dædalus

Each issue of Dædalus, the Academy’s quarterly journal, explores a single theme or subject from a multidisciplinary perspective in essays written by Academy members and other experts. Members are encouraged to propose topics for issues of Dædalus and to serve as guest editors.

Share the Academy’s Work

Members play a vital role in disseminating the Academy’s work to policymakers, the media, scholars, students, and leaders in higher education, nonprofit organizations, business, and philanthropy.

Connect Locally

A national network of Local Program Committees and Representatives provides opportunities for members to connect with the work of the Academy and with each other in the communities where they live.

Attend an Event

The Academy holds events in person and virtually. These gatherings bring members and others in their communities together to explore important topics through an interdisciplinary lens that draws on the Academy’s breadth and expertise.

Watch Academy Videos

The Academy shares event and feature videos on YouTube. Panels, performances, presentations, and more are online.
